Hopefully they do take it but SCOTUS may want other circuits to also weigh in. I'm not sure how many other similar-situated cases have been decided in other circuits, probably not many post Bruen at least.
I agree, although by doing this she may have at least gotten the issue out of Federal court and into state court, where this somewhat turns on preemption issues, which it appears she'd lose again:
MT does specifically state someone is “licensed” for the GFSZ law if they can legally possess under state law.
We could be headed for an interesting showdown in Federal court. Question is whether...
How? The GFSZ (Federal Law) hasn't been changed in years. There's no exception for Constitutional Carry states. The exception is the CCW issued by that state.
Now maybe MT has stated in their ConCarry law that this is their carry permit. If they have then it's going to be an interesting case in...
Another issue which could push the courts in that direction is these anti states are making it more and more difficult to get a permit, even with the need requirement gone.
Many charge more for out of state residents (some like CA and NY don’t even issue), and according to Handgunlaw for MA a...
Pretty interesting. I would think the state would try to appeal this. If not, this opens the door to Mass having to recognize Constitutional Carry states' residents.
I don't know if this will necessarily stand, I have to be honest.
It sort of does although with the other amendments having many more cases at SCOTUS, they're already baked in and wouldn't be materially affected by Bruen.
I would say though if you read through the 1A cases you'll see references to the founding era.
FOPA generally covers you travelling directly THROUGH a state, not necessarily your beginning state and final destination state as I understand it.
I think you're good with the advice above for MD.
A place like NJ is different though. Everything not included as an exception is illegal...
