Appeals court considers key provision of Maryland’s gun-control law

Quote:With a key provision of Maryland’s gun-control laws hanging in the balance, a federal appeals court on Wednesday wrestled with the broad question of whether the individual right to keep a firearm in one’s home for self-defense extends beyond the front door.

The lawsuit, one of many challenging gun restrictions throughout the country, seeks to make it easier for residents to carry handguns in public places.

If the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit upholds a lower court decision, state police in Maryland anticipate that thousands of additional residents could legally carry a loaded firearm.

At issue in Maryland is the state’s requirement that applicants provide a “good and substantial reason” to the state police to obtain a permit for carrying a handgun.
