Maryland ruling in favor of defensive firearm carry likely to survive appeal

Constitutional lawyers said Tuesday that a recent federal court decision overturning a portion of Maryland's gun-control law will likely be upheld on appeal and called the ruling groundbreaking given the liberalism of the state from which it came.
And contrary to CSGV's contention that "binding 4th Circut precedent . . . found that banning guns in public is constitutional under the Second Amendment," the United States v. Masciandaro ruling, decided in that court, devoted three long paragraphs to explaining why the Second Amendment probably protects carrying firearms outside the home (see the sidebar slide show for the relevant section of that ruling). Judge Legg's ruling, in fact, borrowed heavily from the Masciandaro decision. [More]
