I, too, just noticed this. Since I have the setup, I'll take the usual setup/1st shift Saturday and takedown/2nd shift Sunday.

Slow afternoon, but some excellent conversations.

The hot topic seemed to be the lawsuit(s) status, and reciprocity. A LOT of reciprocity and permit talk.

Had a group of young black couples come over and they were very interested in the state of things, and wanted to talk about how MD goes as far as they do to complicate the Right. I think the men are firefighters, and the group came off as being very tight-knit and at least borderline conservative.

Overall, though, a productive day. About half a dozen new memberships (with maybe a couple more to come online), and a decent day of HQL donations.

Very nice to have some new faces helping out during the Sunday morning shift. Things were slow but we were able to engage a number of people for good discussions. Brought in some new members, broadened the email list, and picked up a few bucks toward the HQL lawsuit. Always a surprise or two when dealing with the public but that is what makes working events a fun time.

Looking forward to the next show! :beer:

Here's another Saturday afternoon feel good story:

A youngish couple made a beeline to the table, Seems hubby came to the show to engage us. He joined and after some discussion, I found out he was stationed at Ft. Meade, and several of his co-workers were interested in us. He left with a bunch of encouragement and a fistful of "MSI In a Nutshell" brochures. It made my afternoon!

Thank you for all that you do. So many of us have given many hours and risked ourselves publicly to profess the truth.

"...show them your support for gun rights" says NRA's Shannon Alford, she continues that an email or a phone call is important, but nothing has a bigger impact than talking directly to your representative. “Your voice in Annapolis is your vote in Annapolis,” says Alford.

Wear and Carry Permit lawsuit

Maryland Shall Issue (MSI) applauds the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) announcement of its support of a new challenge against the State of Maryland's unfair and discriminatory wear and carry permit system in federal district court.  The case name is Malpasso v. Pallozzi, No. 18-1064 (D. MD).  The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, which is the NRA's Maryland state organization, is also a named plaintiff. The lawsuit candidly acknowledges that the relief sought "is contrary to Woollard v. Gallagher, 712 F.3d 865 (4th Cir. 2013), but alleges that the Fourth Circuit's decision in Woollard was "wrongly decided" for the "reasons explained in Wrenn v. District of Columbia, 864 F.3d 650 (D.C. Cir. 2017), and that the purpose of the suit is "to seek to have Woollard overturned."  The suit is thus similar to complaints filed by the same counsel in New York (New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Beach, No. 18-134 (N.D.N.Y.)), and in New Jersey (Rogers v. Grewal, No. 18-1544 (D.N.J.)) in which existing adverse Second Circuit and Third Circuit precedent is challenged in the same way. These suits all take advantage of the "circuit split" created by the D.C. Circuit's decision in Wrenn. The resolution of such circuit splits is often the reason that cases are reviewed in the Supreme Court.

Medical Marijuana and Guns

With the recent changes in Maryland law concerning medical marijuana, see MD Code, Health - General, § 13-3304 et seq., and the push to legalize the use of marijuana in Maryland, a recurring issue is how such marijuana use would affect your Second Amendment rights.  The short answer is that it may well act to abrogate those rights by (1) barring a FFL from selling a firearm to such a user and (2), by making such a user a prohibited person under federal law.
