concealed gun permits

Jeremy Preston will not be facing felony charges for carrying a concealed firearm after he was stopped by police.  His Tennessee firearm permit expired when he obtained a Delaware driver’s license.

On Monday prosecutors dropped the charges.

The 33-year old Middletown engineer called the incident a Second Amendment nightmare.

Marylanders will be able to legally carry a concealed loaded gun after August 7th without having to show a good and substantial reason for doing so.

That’s the date set by Federal Judge Benson Legg, who required officials to get rid of that requirement on applications.

Maryland State Attorney General Doug Gansler has filed an appeal in federal court to vacate the ruling.

There are 12-thousand Maryland residents who have such permits.
