Earlier today, the U.S District Court in Maryland issued its ruling in Woollard v. Sheridan. [Click here to read the decision.] “The Court finds that the right to bear arms is not limited to the home.” What’s more, Free State citizens no longer need a “good and substantial” reason to receive a concealed handgun permit. Today’s victory for gun rights follows the Supreme Court’s Heller and McDonald decisions, and the defeat of Wisconsin’s concealed carry ban. It also reflects a cultural shift towards gun “normalization.” In other words, guns have become acceptable. Make that desirable. And in unexpected (for some) places. For example, we hear that black voters in Chicago are saying to pols, “The gang bangers have guns. Why can’t I have one?” Rest assured complacency is not on the menu. But the questions remains: are we winning?
