"Let me be clear. Process Mr. Woollard's CCW permit app renewal immediately."
Bad news... He has enacted a temporary stay in his ruling. He will consider and rule on a permanent stay on the 23rd of May. Money quote from Maryland Shall-Issue
"This means that the... ruling cannot yet take effect. The temporary stay is designed to give Maryland and SAF time to prepare a formal argument for and against a permanent stay until the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals rules. Unfortunately Maryland is still free to use Good & Substantial Reason [may issue] during the temporary stay. It is not yet known how Maryland will interpret the temporary stay "
Worst news. I sent in my application through the mail not 15 minutes before I read this...
That said, if I HAD heard before hand I would have sent my application in anyway. It's only 2+11+40+75+6 dollars. $134? Plus time. I'll do it again if I have to after all the appeals are done. Anyway, it's a waiting game now. I am 'in the system.'
