Default Maryland Law 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."

Yeah, that.

Federal judge says gun owners need not provide 'good reason,' rules Maryland law unconstitutional

I saw this earlier on Foxnews.com.

Great news for the 2A and its supporters.

So do you think it will carry any weight in California?

The story at the link is a grammatical trainwreck...is this an ownership issue or a "shall issue" determination. The story switches between requiring a permit to own a hand gun and renewing an already issued permit to carry.
