Annapolis, MD -(Ammoland.com)- The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, heard the lawsuit of Kolbe v Hogan (Previously Kolbe v O’Malley).

This lawsuit was brought by MSI, The Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore, The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, The NRA, The Maryland Licensed Firearms Dealers Association, two firearms dealers and two Maryland citizens. The three-judge panel listened to both sides and asked some very good questions that raised some very good points.

We are cautiously optimistic as we await the court’s decision, which should be released in 60 – 90 days, give or take. The digital recording of the argument is now available and can be accessed by clicking on the following link: marylandshallissue.com/share/audio/kolbe4ca.mp3.

The recording is about one hour in duration.
