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.

Taking these challenges is not possible without your support! Consider becoming a member of MSI, donating, or wearing MSI apparel or picking up our accessories.



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!
