Court Strikes Down Maryland’s Infringement of Second Amendment Rights

On November 21, 2023, a three-judge panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit found the State of Maryland had violated the Constitution with their recent handgun purchase law. The law requires considerable delay and process before a person can legally purchase a handgun. The opinion specifically states the recent add-on law enacted in 2016 infringes on the Second Amendment by hindering the right to acquire a handgun. From the opinion:


  1. I'm not the sharpest tool in the box but I do understand 'shall not be infinged' as I hope a schooled judge would?

  2. Have you noticed lately? The Grabbers are having a tough time winning a court case.

    It's interesting reading about dissenting Judge Barbara Milano Keenan's definition of 'infringe'. There are way too many activists wearing black robes in America who believe 'The law is what I say it is".

  3. However Maryland has also said it will continue to enforce its gun control law until they get a final opinion.

    1. Yep, state police issued a statement the very next day that literally acknowledges the law is unConstitutional, and in the very next sentence declares flatly that the law will stay in effect anyway.

      “Back the Blue”, right?

  4. Lawfare. They know average people cant afford felony convictions and taking their case to the supreme court.

  5. Sounds like a win but the gun grabbers just use the ATF to do their dirty work rather than politicians.

  6. All the corrupt enforcers/orcs have names, addresses, and routines.
    All the corrupt judges have names, addresses, and routines
    All the corrupt elected officials have names, address, and routines.
    All the cheating liberal pole workers, have names, addresses, and routines.

    No one is exempt from the laws of physics.
