Events Committee -- members wanted!

Howard R created the topic: Events Committee -- members wanted!
I'm now the Events Committee (as well as the chairman) but I'm looking to expand my domain. :) Ideally I would like to have someone from each geographic area of the state, i.e. western, southern, and eastern shore, plus one more "backup" member in the north/central area. (The last one is to take over a show when I have a schedule conflict, more on that in a bit.) The "duties" will not be extensive, mostly just keep an ear/eye out for anything of interest coming up in the area that might be a good fit for MSI to attend. So, anybody who is interested and can help out, please respond in this thread and/or send an email to , thanks!

While I'm on the subject, the shows are definitely bunching up on the calendar. While there is nothing I'm aware of in March, there are three in April and of course I have schedule conflicts with two of them! We have a Silverado in Frederick 1-2 Apr, I can't make it on Saturday (the 1st) but I will go down and set up Friday night, will just need "full coverage" for both Saturday shifts. I will be able to do my usual Sunday/take down. The following weekend, 8-9, is Timonium and I'm going to be out of town that whole time. For this one I will need to meet up with someone early that week to hand over the show kit. I can give more detailed instructions on how to put up the banner stand, etc. but will need hopefully experienced hands to do the show all weekend, then meet up again to re-transfer on Monday.

Also if anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears so please chime in.

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.
