I received my HPRB denial letter and need to appeal that to Circuit Court within 30 days. I don't expect a different outcome, but what the hell. I am a DC resident and I'm looking for advice on venue. Baltimore County? Baltimore City?
The letterhead states the HPRB is located at 6776 Reisterstown Road, Suite 200A, Baltimore, MD 21215? I'm assuming that'd place me within Baltimore City?
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."
