The response time for protection is 10 minutes can one afford to WAIT for protection?
The state of Vermont where "every idiot can legally carry a gun everywhere" hardly bears resemblance to the country of Iraq!
So Troop where are you getting your facts from and maybe you can tell us when was the last time one of the local Md thugs registered a handgun?
The state has appealed to the 4th circuit and asked for a stay. I doubt they will get it because they must prove the decision harms them. Not hardly.
The judge's ruling certainly is NOT news to us here. We not only knew it all along, but it is clearly the intention of the 2nd Amendment. My question to us is this... WHY do we need permission to exercise what is an undisputable RIGHT??? If the state has the authority to tell us whether and when we can keep and bare our arms, then it's a privilege, not a right. We need to stop being wimps, dammit!
Heck, I'd like to see lawful gun owners orchestrate a gun owners "occupy" the state capitol... with our guns in tow. (maybe not loaded, for this purpose)
