    Wow, this is amazing news. I'm looking very seriously at moving to Maryland next summer for further training after I graduate, and this makes me feel much more positive about that. Now let's just hope this doesn't get put on hold by the 4th Circuit.

    I'd like to buy Benson Legg a beer. My app was turned in back in March. I should hopefully be in the first wave of apps to be issued. :)

    Does this ruling differentiate between open carry and concealed carry? Does this mean that Maryland "shall issue" for CC?

    Marylands handgun permit does not specify open or concealed but open carry is pretty much non existant and I'm sure would attract the attention of law enforcement.

    They will simply not process the application.

    They have decided what is safe and correct for you.

    Nonsense. The application does not and can not specify open or concealed carry.

    The judge has already struck down good and substantial. Unless the CA4 issues an emergency stay we are shall issue but this can happen anytime during the whole appeal. You'd be waiting quite awhile till that's over.

    Did you read the link? They cannot simply "not process" the application. It isn't up to them and they don't want to fight this anyway. The MSP is working WITH US on this.

    You only have to wait until Aug. 6th, as there are hundreds of completed, approved applications which will be hitting the mails that day. That's straight from the MSP's mouth.

    Seriously guys, please go read the link and get informed.

    The MSP is beholden to the politicians.

    Do you really think they will go against their master's?

    Get real.

    Ok, so you won't read it and inform yourself. That's too bad, but you really should. The information in that thread is, in part, coming FROM MSP. :)

    When ordered by a Federal court order concerning a civil right they will. Not even Owemalley is that stupid. Believe what you want.

    The Supremes struck down the restrictions on the DC gun control laws about 2 years ago but citizens are still waiting for relief....and permits are not being handed out like candy...

    Unfortunately, the antis in this case will continue to place road blocks in the way....so don't cellabrate anything yet...

    the MSP are trying to do the right thing...read the MD link...it is worth the read. The politics (many blood sucking insects) will come later.

    If the antis here in Md want to place road blocks in the way they'll have to wait till the next legilative session. For now good and substantial has been removed. Permits will just be processed without it for now.

    I couldnt wait to leave Maryland, and now...

    i am SO tagging this thread! As soon as someone actually receives their permit under the new system, especially an out-of-state resident; i will get mine (*), and add MD back onto the list of places i dont mind visiting.

    Good news!
    C-

    (*) unless they decide to reciprocate with Texas, then its all the better

    Like almost every other organization everywhere, updating all their documentation and website stuff will probably lag a bit. Especially as the last stay was announced to be ending just four days ago!

    Please remember that MD has appealed the ruling to the 4CA in Richmond.

    This is not yet a done deal.

    Fingers crossed however. The stay is officially lifted on 8-8-12

    The new rules don't go into effect until August 7 so you won't see a revised application on the Maryland State Police web site until then.

    We've been listening to this for 8 years now.

    "You're wasting your time"
    "It will never happen"
    "Don't bother"

    Meanwhile we keep moving forward every time and still have to listen to the naysayers.

    I guess some people just can't accept that it's going to happen.

    It's the District Court.
    Anyplace else it's called round one.

    We have a long way to go.
    This will eventually wind up at the SCOTUS door

    This is GREAT

    This is good news but I think it will be a "when pigs fly" you can CCW in that state. Hope I'm wrong.
