So now that Maryland lost their court case, and is suddenly a “Shall Issue” state, what does our side (the RKBA, pro-civil rights side) need besides over a thousand law-abiding people sending in their applications ASAP, return receipt?
How about taking someone along for the ride whose employer buys ink by the barrel or power by the megawatt/hour?
Hopefully, after carefully pointing out that there is no resident requirement for a Maryland Carry License, hopefully I’ve done just that. Hopefully. Not saying. Nope.
The only issue I see is it may be quite a boring story:
Week one: got the photos, fingerprints, references, paperwork, and the outrageous fee for exercising a core civil right all together. Mailed it in, return receipt requested.
Week two: Maryland failed in their plea to get a stay
Week three: The bank says my check was cashed
Week four: Nothing
Week five: Nothing
Week eleven: Nothing, and from my 1000+ other contacts, nothing either. MD state police says “there is a slight backlog”
Week twenty-six: Nothing. Except that Raymond Woollard (of Woollard v. Sheridan ) finally got his permit renewed. State Police say they are giving preference to renewals.
Week twenty-seven: Nothing.
Anyone with any ideas for “filler”, let’s hear them.
Oh, and credit for the “no residency requirement” goes to Patrick, who is
(unverified) [see comments below] President of Maryland Shall Issue, in a comment left on this thread here.
