Regarding "Md. gun permit law is constitutional," by Larry O'Dell [March 22]: The article states that Maryland's law requiring handgun permit applicants to demonstrate a "good and substantial reason" for carrying a weapon outside their own home or business is constitutional, a federal appeals court ruled.
There are so many flaws in this ruling I could write volumes, enumerating them without detail. These three appeals court judges are either responding to enticement or are just plain mentally challenged.
I will shine light on only one of the many flaws in the ruling. Since when does anyone have to demonstrate a "good and substantial reason" for exercising a constitutional right? That right being "the right of the people to keep and bear arms." This right is not limited by where the people may bear arms.
