Open Carry in Open Carry State No Pretext for Stop

Civil rights victory in the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals. This will only apply to the 4th circuit, and not the rest of the country, but this decision can be pointed to in sister circuits when such cases present themselves. Pennsylvania already has a similar case that would presumably also cover open carry.

    Today the 4th Cir. today reversed Woollard v. Sheridan.

    The deference given to false/speculative legislative “findings” is getting out of hand.

    The 4th ckt thing is initially disappointing, but I think it’s a pyrrhic victor for Gansler and O’Malley. There’s now a split at the federal circuit level thanks to the IL ruling that says almost exactly the opposite thing.

    It means Gura can hopefully get this thing in front of SCOTUS and get certioriari while the current balance on the court favors us.

    Exactly…let’s have this fight now and not in 2017 or 2020 when it’ll be a Hillary nominee as the swing vote.
