Maryland Shall Issue

Maryland -–(Ammoland.com)- The Supreme Court today announced it will not hear the Woollard case, allowing the ruling of the 4th Circuit to stand.

That said, a denial of cert does not mean an affirmation of the ruling. This is a setback for 2nd amendment civil rights, but it is by no means the end.

Additionally, there are several other carry cases making their way through the court system. The 9th Circuit will hear a De Facto ban on concealed carry from Hawaii. (Hawaii has a system but doesn’t issue permits) as well as several challenges from California. Should the Supreme Court act on one of these cases, it would impact the Woollard case. The case can be revived should one of these cases move forward.

In 2013, MSI turned out over 4,000 people in support of 2nd Amendment Civil Rights. In 2014, we hope to turn out 10,000. Court was only one avenue in which we can restore our rights. We have a major election in 2014 in which we can impact the make up of the General Assembly as well make those who voted against us in 2013 pay with their jobs. Remember that Maryland is a closed primary state. You must be registered as the same party of the person you want to vote for/against. It is imperative we channel our frustration with the courts into activism.

We have seen encouraging results in Illinois. A state that has the power of Chicago in their legislature has gone from no issue to shall issue. The IL Supreme Court and 7th Circuit Court of Appeals have held that Heller extends beyond the home.

Federal Civil Rights legislation is a long and tedious process. We must continue to push forward in the General Assembly while we wait to see how the remaining court cases play out. MSI provides a number of opportunities to get involved through the events committee (events@marylandshallissue.org) to meet and engage people.

2014 is a pivotal year for Maryland 2nd Amendment Rights. When Senator Frosh was told to beware ignoring the people before him, he muttered “I’ll take my chances,” let’s show him and the General Assembly that we have teeth at the polls.

    1. The idea is to never stop fighting. Remember when the French go a paid in the French Revolution? It is time for that here. Drag the criminals out in the streets and hack their heads off!!! Time to quit playing games.
