    SCOTUS vacated and remanded a Federal case in Mass that said, among other things, that you need a state license to buy/own a gun in light of the Bruen case. That case is Morin v. Lyver. That means MD HQL is illegal.

    That's not quite accurate. HQL is still the law of the land in MD. Its days are numbered, though.

    The court was asked about "good cause" stipulation in Bruen, and we got more than that out of the decision.
    Not really, not in the way of the actionable parts of a ruling. What we got was a specific response to the circumstances of the case at hand in NYRSP v Bruen, and Thomas provided a ruling that WILL (but no already has, with a couple of exceptions in other cases) provide the ammo that litigators will need to go after other infringements. But the infringements themselves stand tall and obnoxious despite Bruen, until put through the litigation Thunderdome.

    I think the important bit we got out of the decision is the roadmap oh how 2A should be approached. That wasn't part of the original question.

    It did not wipe out infringing laws, but it should be the ammunition to get other things, like assault weapons bans, struck.

    It will be illegal when the MA case gets reheard and MD's class is held up to the same light. HQL is still law in MD.

    Until we "the people" get off our buns and vote the left wing nuts out. We "the people" will be stuck with what we have now...

    Get out the vote for the RIGHT.

    Frosh tried to go back to history, but could not reach the 1791 cutoff date as Thomas laid out for the text, history, tradition test.

    So by Frosh's logic the 2A doesn't apply to women or anyone over 45 because they were not fit for militia service.

    Frosh just be grasping for anything. He found a total of five states that banned especially dangerous weapons. Five….

    Between 1771 and 1895, at least five States banned trap guns, spring guns, and guns rigged to discharge by added mechanisms like strings or ropes, suggesting that those modifications heightened the danger posed by the guns above and beyond their ordinary potential.

    Easiest way to torpedo Frosh's arguments is to note that the legal requirement for militia training in the 1790s was not tied in any way to being allowed to purchase or possess a firearm or ammunition.

    And the militia were required to already have their own firearms and ammunition and to bring them to training.
