Malpasso v Pallozzi SCOTUS Cert Petition Filed

The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (“MSRPA”) has filed a petition for a writ of certiorari in the United States Supreme Court in our case challenging the unconstitutional Maryland restrictions on carrying a handgun outside the home for self-defense, Malpasso v. Pallozzi.* MSRPA and its attorneys believe strongly that Maryland’s permitting scheme is flatly contrary to the Supreme Court’s holding in Heller and cannot survive under the Second Amendment.* We are pleased to welcome the former Solicitor General of the United States, Paul Clement, as lead counsel for our petition. Mr. Clement brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our case, and is considered by many to be one of the best Supreme Court advocates, having argued over 90 cases before the Court.

A copy of the filing is attached below and may also be found at the following link:*https://www.msrpa.org/wp-content/upl...tion-FINAL.pdf.

MSRPA wishes to acknowledge the support of the National Rifle Association, without which this litigation would not be possible.

MSRPA is the flagship Gun Rights organization in and for the State of Maryland. The Association offers both individual and club memberships. Support of the shooting disciplines and legislative activities is primarily through a systems of committees. All participants are volunteers.2019.09.26 Malpasso Cert Petition FINAL.pdf

Both the Maryland Shall Issue and this look good at me as well as the New York rifle and pistol club vs State of New York!

With all the hammering firearms owners have gone through this year this is a bit of good news for a change. Luck to us all.

Thanks for relaying the support the NRA has given. I am a life member and I know Marylanders may feel left out at times, hopefully this case and others will break the legal log jam.

Plus with Paul Clements on board who has a TON of experience appearing before the bench presenting his case and most of time winning his cases as well really helps us and i bet Herr Frosh and his minions are not happy which suits me just fine and since reading the petition for cert I think their is a very good chance at least it will get on the docket for discussion and i will say no more because I do not want to be the one to jinks it...

I hope SCOTUS takes up the case and decides in our favor. Best wishes to MSRPA in this action. I'm sure many of us will be following it closely. Not being a lawyer, can someone tell me when we can expect to see any action from SCOTUS on this petition? I know that they start their term next month and I'm assuming they probably have enough cases to fill their docket for the upcoming session, so would this case be taken up in October 2020 or might they take it earlier? Thanks for helping a non-lawyer understand the timing on this.

Ya i wrote that early in the morning before my had my morning cup of Joe... I am very glad that Paul Clements is on our side since he has so much experience before SCOTUS arguing cases and I also hope this does give the DemoRATS in the MGA , Herr Baron Frosh and his minions starting with the top of MSP and the capt in charge of the MSP lic division a nice little migraine as well.
