2nd Amendment case being appealed to SCOTUS

Just The NewsTwenty-five states, led by Arizona and West Virginia, are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to hear Bianchi v. Frosh, which challenges Maryland's restrictive Firearms Safety Act of 2013.

The state of Maryland "has essentially enumerated large specific lists of firearms that are not to be permitted as lawful to posses," Schmidt said. "We don't think that approach is permissible under the Second Amendment. We don't think that political actors, legislatures, get to pick and choose which weapons in common use are available to Americans, and we've asked the Supreme Court to take the case and give us greater definition. I'm hopeful that they will."

The Supreme Court's recent order indicates that at least one justice on the bench wants a response and "likely means that the court will hold this petition pending a decision in NYSRPA v. Bruen," argues Maryland Shall Issue, an all-volunteer, nonpartisan organization committed to defending the Second Amendment. The Supreme Court is currently considering the constitutionality of New York's "good cause" requirement for carry permits in a case it agreed to hear last year.

Good luck.
