What is there about an inherent right, further and purposely and specifically affirmed by the COTUS, that requires Maryland State Police “not disapproval”?

Who was AG when this was first put into use? I'm guessing Comrade Joe Curran...the apparatchik's apparatchik. Whatever anti-gun, anti-freedom attitudes Brian Frosh may have he probably learned from Curran.

I would have to ask some of those with more gray hair than me. I don't know when they started using the Not Disapproved language. And, again, I am just conjecturing that this was a reason, not the entire rationale, behind the weasel words.

It's like in court when you are adjudicated "not guilty". They never say "found innocent" It's a CYA thing, I think. It means someone failed to find you guilty. Someone failed to disapprove you. They've cleaned their hands of you.

They've been using the "Not Disapproved" language since the days of paper applications...before they went to doing so on-line. Your applications would come back with a "Not Disapproved" handstamp in big letters.

It's the same when a state's attorney won't prosecute due to "insufficient evidence". It's a legal way of saying not that you're innocent but they don't have enough evidence to charge you and find you guilty.

I know it's been like that since 1999, when I came of age. I figure it's been that way when the parchmentwork actually did say, "If it pleases the crown."

I suspect MD is unique in using such language.
