Md. Attorney General Seeks Stay On Gun Ruling

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler is asking a federal appeals court to delay the implementation of a judge's ruling that Maryland's gun permit law is unconstitutional, pending an appeal by the state.

Gansler made the request with the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Va., on Friday. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Benson Legg decided to lift a stay effective Aug. 7, pertaining to his ruling that will allow Maryland residents to carry handguns without having to show a "good and substantial reason."

The Maryland attorney general's office is appealing the judge's March ruling. The state wants the stay to be in effect until the court has decided on the state's appeal. The case was brought by the Second Amendment Foundation in 2010.
