AG Brown Wants Rehearing on Gun Law

December 7th, 2023 by WCBC Radio

On November 21, 2023, a divided three-judge panel of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled 2-1 that Maryland’s law violated the Second Amendment. Now Maryland Attorney General Brown is asking for a rehearing of the case before the full 15-judge appellate court. “The Second Amendment does not prohibit states from enacting common-sense gun laws like Maryland’s handgun licensing law,” said Attorney General Brown. “My office will continue to defend laws that are designed to protect Marylanders from gun violence.”
