Since the DC Concealed Carry Permit has been effectively challenged and the Appeals Court has ruled that a Constitutional Right cannot require an excuse/reason to be exercised (similar to Judge Benson Legg's statement in the MD ruling), and DC's permitting process was entirely based on the MD Carry Permit process, what will the result be for MD? Are we not of the same appeals circuit?

I believe that DC has their own Circuit. And I'm sure this will be appealed by DC, and a stay will be granted. So until that appeal is heard, it will be business as usual. And whichever side loses will most likely continue to push the case to SCOTUS. It's tough to wait while these cases trudge through the courts. :banghead:

Unfortunately, DC is in a different Circuit, so this will have no impact on MD unless it gets to SCOTUS
