A gun-rights advocacy group has taken on state legislation across the country that they say violates the second amendment. The nonprofit group, ‘Second Amendment Foundation,’ sued the state of Maryland and challenged its requirements to obtain a conceal carry permit.
Maryland law states that people who want to apply for a permit must demonstrate “good and substantial reason.” This means the applicant must provide evidence to back up their claim, including police reports and notarized statements.
The ‘Second Amendment Foundation’ claimed the law greatly reduces the number of permits approved as well as discriminates against regular people with no criminal record and Sen. Michael Hough (R-Md.) agreed.
