So then, in fact doesn't Washington DC fall within the legal ownership of Maryland? Kinda like the landlord still owns the property the tenant lives in. Therefore, if DC does have Shall Issue status, wouldn't that mean the rest of the state would fall under these guidelines?

I'm sure I'm blowing smoke, but just maybe.............??????????????
I think you are seriously stretching brother. Different federal circuit, even if your argument is legit I doubt anyone would bring it.

If land from one state is going to create or be annexed to another, the voters must accept it.

no way.

Hey, we have to have hope. Maybe, just maybe it could be true.

Like they say, even if you only have a 1 in a million chance of dating that hot girl, you still have a chance.....

But DC isn't a state. Maryland only lent them the property to build on.

Come on, we gotta have something... anything... even some small bit of hope.

Do we really want to get stuck with being responsible for DC , and adding that many left wing Dems ?

( If we could trade Baltimore for it even up , we'ed have to think about it . )

We have a clear circuit conflict at this point. A case is going to SCOTUS, just a matter of time.

Seems like they're taking the proverbial "one for the team" to keep the rest of country from being shall issue. Touchė DC, touchė.
