A Federal Judge Gets It Right


Do you want to know where your State stands regarding gun control? The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence has established a scorecard.

Of course, 2nd Amendment supporters and The Brady Campaign differ on what makes a good score. Brady is looking for a high score. For 2nd Amendment supporters, the lower the score the better. The goal is to make your State a red State on The Brady Campaign’s map.

There was a good ruling in Maryland last week as a Federal judge struck down a State requirement that individuals prove they have a “good and substantial reason” for seeking a handgun carry permit. Judge Benson Everett Legg ruled: “A citizen may not be required to offer a ‘good and substantial reason’ why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right’s existence is all the reason he needs.”

It’s refreshing to see common sense exercised, for a change.
