Maryland ruling: State AG will appeal, antis demonize decision - Seattle gun rights | Examiner.com
The Second Amendment Foundation ("Winning Firearms Freedom One Lawsuit At A Time") won at the trial court level and should prevail on appeal.
Thanks for the above very insightful link. It's good to read that someone challenged the constitutionality of "need"-based Permitting ... and W O N, hopefully establishing precedent for eliminating "need"-based Permitting, since that was a Federal decision which, I hope, supersedes State contradictions that undermine the Second Amendment portion of the Bill of Rights.
What is or is not Constitutional is decided by as few as 5 members of the court . So flip a coin . If you get 5 that say is constitutional it is for the time being if 5 say no then your done for now. Current court it is very close on any favorable decision concerning 2nd amendment. With one change thing could take a major turn from where they are now.
A change or two on the court and the 2nd could be changed to mean anything they want it to. Who you vote for has long term effects.
This is why it's SO IMPORTANT TO VOTE! We need to mobilise gun owners,people who share our views,politics aside I believe our group was responsible for
GWB election as he won by what 530 some odd votes out of millions. This because who ever elected term will be responsible for replacing at least two
Supreme Court Justices ! God forbid if the incumbent president is elected he will be come essentially a lame duck with no fear of reelection so we really need
to give time ,money when appropriate.We'll see how close the election comes as our great country has become polarized by politicians using the divide and conquer
to defeat groups. Ask your young people vote for the guy who best represents their values not because he looks good on T.V.I truly believe if our children
vote and stop giving away our rights, the election will be a sound victory.You can see our fight that's being fought in the daily trenches educating the anti
group by taking fear out of the owning and shooting a firearms and not all gun owners are nuts but we are law abiding majority who pay our bills ,taxes etc.
Local levels we now have more than one response to negative or untruth facts about our firearms and sport.We noticed which networks are spreading propoganda
about our ways of life and we respond with truth and education is it and will it be enough I pray so.
