BALTIMORE (AP) — The Second Amendment right to bear arms is not limited to the home and Maryland’s requirement that residents show a “good and substantial reason” to get a handgun permit is unconstitutional, according to a federal judge’s opinion filed Monday.

Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals Grants the Stay
The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals (CA4) has granted Maryland's motion for a stay pending the outcome of appeal of the Woollard case. This overrules the lower court's order that would have lifted the stay effective August 7th and takes us back to where we stood just a few weeks prior. While this is certainly disheartening, the much bigger issue remains the appeal of the case itself. Oral arguments will be scheduled at some point between October 23-26. A ruling on the case is likely to come at some point in early 2013.
In the meantime, permit applications submitted to MSP can still be denied if you do not have a "good and substantial reason," so please bear that in mind if you had planned on submitting an application.
