As a Marylander, allow me to say, thank you, SD.

(Democrats lie because they must.)
South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley says the written brief supports a lower court's decision to strike down Maryland's requirement that law abiding citizens must demonstrate a reason for carrying a gun. He says a person who otherwise meets reasonable requirements for getting a gun permit should not have to provide further justification.
Jackley says requiring a law abiding citizen to provide a reason for carrying a firearm infringes on the constitutional right to bear arms.

As a transplant to Maryland who had to give up the right to carry, I second your thanks

(People who live within their means are increasingly being forced to pay for people who didn't.)
We’re presently traveling up to Maine traveling on I-81 for most of the day. Just got into our hotel room for the night Although very tired, we traveled the extra few miles needed to get into Pennsylvania to get our food, fuel and hotel room for the night. We by-passed fueling, eating or staying in Maryland for this very reason. We will not buy gas, hotel rooms, food, etc. in any of the states that refuse to recognize our CC permits and/or are anti-gun/anti-constitution if we can help it. We will strive to have a full tank of fuel and food before we hit the New York, Conn. and Mass. state lines so that we can just blow on thru without stopping or spending a penny. IF we have to stop, it will be only be a marginal fuel purchase to get us to heck outta there asap.
