Yes, PLEASE reintroduce these bills. Maryland has to allow its citizens to protect ourselves. BOTTOM LINE:
Would Maryland prefer someone who has gone through background checks and fingerprinting and found to be a law abiding citizen to have a weapon for protection of life and property or continue he current SAFE FREE zones for criminals?
NO law is going to prevent gun crimes. Criminals are going to follow the law anyway..........
In a huge decision authored by Judge O'Scannlain, a split panel of the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has ruled that Hawaii's ban on open carry outside the home in that state violates the Second Amendment under any level of scrutiny. The decision, Young v. Hawaii, can be found here. The decision is very scholarly, carefully reasoned and a powerful statement that the Second Amendment is not a "second-class" right or a constitutional "orphan."
