MSI v. Montgomery County Update

ghostgun2

On June 16, 2021, we filed an emergency motion for partial summary judgment on three of our counts against Montgomery County's enactment of Bill 4-21. The motion seeks to enjoin the County from enforcing their new illegal laws which will go into effect on July 16th without action from the Court. Find the motion HERE and the memorandum in support HERE. As we have stated previously, we will not sit idle while politicians make criminals of ordinary and law-abiding residents. You can learn more and find updates about this case at tinyurl.com/msivmoco.

Meanwhile, the State has filed a notice of appeal in Hulbert v. Pope, not at all happy that Sgt. Pope was stripped of qualified immunity and that the case will proceed to trial for the unlawful arrest of Jeff and Kevin Hulbert. Furthermore, MSI v. Hogan, the HQL litigation, is fully briefed before the federal District Court in Baltimore and the parties are awaiting further action from the judge. Call v. Jones, the case against Maryland's handgun carry ban, is being held in the US Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit pending the outcome of New York State Rifle and Pistol Assoc. v. Corlett, which will likely be scheduled for oral argument this October or November at the US Supreme Court. A ruling in that potentially game-changing case wouldn't be expected until late next June.

We're excited to announce that the MSI Annual meeting will be in-person on September 18th, 2021. Information on location and more will be forthcoming. In the meantime, stop by our booth and say hello to us at the Nation's Gun Show in Chantilly, VA this weekend!

Maryland Shall Issue, Inc. et al v. Montgomery County, Maryland

 
On May 28, 2021, Maryland Shall Issue, Engage Armament, ICE Firearms & Defensive Training, and several residents of Montgomery County, Maryland, filed suit against the County, challenging its enactment of Bill 4-21. That Bill criminalizes the mere possession of privately made firearms without providing compensation and redefines the meaning of "place of public assembly" to encompass virtually the entirety of Montgomery County just in order to criminalize otherwise perfectly lawful firearms possession in the home and elsewhere. The suit seeks declaratory and injunctive relief and an award of damages, including punitive damages. 

You can read the complaint HERE.
Further filings can be found below.
