View Full Version : Judge Refuses to Block MD Gun Law

"A federal judge on Tuesday refused to block implementation of Maryland's new gun control law, citing the late date of the challenge just two business days before it was set to take effect as an indication the law posed no imminent threat to core Second Amendment rights."

Interesting excuse for the refusal.

I would have expected a 'not ripe', but not a 'you waited too long' excuse.

Given how the Montana state vs. federal case has gone thru all the lower courts without even going to discovery (being dismissed on the ground that plaintiffs haven't been wronged yet), why are we even surprised about this?

None of the lower courts want to deal with the issue. They are all throwing the ball to SCOTUS.
