U.S. Supreme Court Won't Hear Maryland May Issue Permit Case

The U.S. Supreme Court said yesterday that it will not hear and appeal of Maryland's handgun permit law.  This leaves in place a lower court ruling that the state's restrictive rules for carry permits do not unconstitutionally infringe upon gun-owners' rights.  The full story is here.

VSSA had filed a amicus brief in the case (Woollard v. Gallagher) when it was before the 4th Circuit.  SCOTUS did not explain their reasoning for denying the petition to hear the case.
