4th Circuit Delays MDs Shall Issue Permit Change(MD)
The Truth About Guns ^ | 3 August, 2012 | Robert Farago

Posted on 08/03/2012 5:23:17 PM PDT by marktwain

“We’ve seen a huge outcry from the public demanding common sense gun laws,” Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence senior attorney Daniel Vice told baltimoresun.com. Vice made his org’s claim on popular support upon hearing that the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked a ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Benson E. Legg that “would have flooded Maryland’s streets with unregulated guns.” Translation: Legg tossed-out the Old Line State’s “may issue” concealed carry permitting process as unconstitutional. “A citizen may not be required to offer a ‘good and substantial reason’ why he should be permitted to exercise his rights,” Legg wrote. “The right’s existence is all the reason he needs.” Using language not unfamiliar to fans of George Orwell, MD AG Douglas F. Gansler [above] says he filed the stay because it was ’”necessary to preserve the peace and tranquillity of the State and to protect the rights and liberties of the public.” Watch this space.

I doubted that the 4th Circuit would grant this stay, but they did. Shall issue will have to wait in Maryland. I have a very difficult time seeing how this can pass the "due process" scrutiny.

You must be an optimist. I told my wife it was guaranteed to happen within the 14 days until the stay was lifted.

You must have a better handle on the make up of the 4th Circuit.

No you have not. Saying it does not make it true.

Ask any old time Marylander and the question of CCW in this state? Nope! A “good and substantial reason” is liberal speak for “you aren’t going to get one”. Own a business and carry large amounts of money to the bank? Too bad.. hire a private security firm (there are plenty with retired MSP troopers... who can get a CCW). This is one dirty state, Mark... devoid of freedom.

The pool of people who make money off CCW will oppose constitutional carry at all costs.
