    Thumbs up If only sanity was contagious! Judge E.B. Legg for President!

    From NRA Shooting Illustrated May 2012 p. 12:

    Entitled "Concealed Carry Court Victory"

    Judge Everett Benson Legg ruled that Maryland's requirement for a "good and substantial reason" to obtain a [ccw] violates [2As] protection of the RKBA.

    In his ruling he writes, "...the right to bear arms is not limited to the home."

    And here is my favorite part...
    He adds: "A citizen may not be required to offer a 'good and substantial reason' why he should be permitted to excercise his rights The right's existence is all the reason he needs"

    I wished he used the word "should" instead of "may" in the last paragraph. Context is everything... And of course the great state of Maryland plans to appeal the ruling. U.S. District Judge Benson Everett Legg To Maryland Gun Grabbers: GFY The Sniper

    I see no real problem with the word may. Yes he could have should or shall. He was telling Maryland that they can not require someone to give a good and substantial reason. He is telling Maryland that if a person applies for a CC permit/license they do not need a reason. In essence he is saying the 2nd amendment meets the "good and substantial reason" automatically.

    I know somebody from Maryland,and he has a TX resident CHL,but has to disarm in the State where his fiancees sister was killed by her husband,I actually got her on the gun range and she fired my 22's and my XD9,guns still freak her out,but if she needed to she has the ability to use her Fiancees if needed.

    Finally, someone in authority near Disneyland on the Potomac is starting to make sense!
