Circuit Court Strikes Down MD Gun Restrictions

Fourth Circuit Strikes Down Maryland’s ‘Assault Weapon’ and ‘High Capacity’ Magazine Bans
“In our view, Maryland law implicates the core protection of the Second Amendment—’the right of law-abiding responsible citizens to use arms in defense of hearth and home,’ District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. 570, 635 (2008), and we are compelled by Heller and McDonald v. City of Chicago, 561 U.S. 742 (2010), as well as our own precedent in the wake of these decisions, to conclude that the burden is substantial and strict scrutiny is the applicable standard of review for Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment claim.”
With that, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Maryland’s “assault weapon” and “large capacity” magazine bans
I think that deserves a "gun girl"

Now legal in Maryland
