Future Supreme Court Advocate Demolishes SB816

SB816/HB1257 (http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/mgawebsite/Legislation/Details/sb0816?ys=2020RS) would impose extreme burdens and requirements upon Maryland gun dealers. Dealers are faced with complying or shutting down, seriously limiting Marylanders' ability to defend themselves.

We couldn't thank this young advocate any more for her fantastic testimony against these assaults on gun owners and businesses!

New Challenge to Maryland's Handgun Carry Ban

     On behalf of our members, Maryland Shall Issue, Inc. is proud to announce that we’ve partnered with the Firearms Policy Coalition, the Second Amendment Foundation, and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms in bringing a new legal challenge to Maryland’s unconstitutional ‘wear and carry’ permit requirements.

     The ‘good and substantial reason’ requirement for issuance of a permit imposed by Maryland law has long been used to effectively disqualify the vast majority of law-abiding Marylanders of their right to carry a handgun for the lawful purpose of self-defense. The time has come to end Maryland’s subjective and discriminatory law and regulations. The people of Maryland have a fundamental right to protect themselves in public.
