    It won't have to be. The MD SP works for the Governor. If he says 'Nyet", then Nyet it ls. They won't issue permits in direct violation of the guy that signs their checks.

    Well, we shall see. If the law is "shall issue" than his say-so may or may not matter much.

    If the decision turns out to be 'Shall Issue", I'm sure that O'Malley already has a lot of other roadblocks planned to make it difficult for us to actually carry. He won't take it lying down.

    Any update on this?

    I heard from my wife that one of her coworkers in Maryland testified during some sort of hearing a couple of weeks ago regarding this issue but I haven't been able to find out any more information because my wife generally doesn't care about gun issues.

    Not really. We lost in the 4CA. SAF has requested CERT from SCOTUS but we won't know that until October. A circuit split may be our last chance if CERT is denied.

    Totally amazing. A may issue criteria that is subject to the whims of the political office occupants. Sounds really like equal protection. I really hope SCOTUS takes this. I would love to hear the state explain to the court how they think its fair to deny permits to people who have absolutely zero criminal record, who don't meet the arbitrary definitions that the state can't rationally explain.

    I haven't been tracking this thread, but my coworker sitting less than 20 feet from me is proudly (I assume) from Dundalk.

    The problem is that the Supreme Court in Heller indicated that "reasonable" restrictions may be put on the right to keep and bear arms. This leaves a huge interpretation open to what each judge considers "reasonable". Those in places like MD, IL, CA, NJ, NY, MA, etc that bought by liberal politicians interpret reasonable to be any restriction the pols want.

    SAF requested CERT from SCOTUS. The hearing is the 11th. We'll know after that meeting.

    If it is upheld by the 9CA en banc and then CERT is granted by SCOTOS and SCOTUS affirms, it will strike down the ruling from the 4CA that overturned Woolard, thus allowing a path to removing G&S as a reason for MD to deny permits. That's a long way off however.

    SCOTUS could however grant cert to Drake much sooner though.

    Coming up on TWO YEARS now, and still no fat lady. I told you they would delay and drag out and fight this down to the last tax payer dollar and beyond.
