Civil Rights in the “Free State”

At the end of June, 2022, the Supreme Court struck down New York’s may-issue handgun permitting system in NYSRPA v. Bruen. On the basis of that decision, the Court reversed and remanded the Fourth Circuit’s upholding of Maryland’s “assault weapons” ban.

The Court of Appeals heard oral arguments on the case on 6 December. Almost five months have passed without a decision. Meanwhile, the Maryland Legislature has responded to Bruen with another round of patently unconstitutional gun control legislation.
