Hearing Monday On MD Gun Control Challenge

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The U.S. District Court in Baltimore has ordered a hearing Monday on a challenge to Maryland's new gun-control law.
    
The hearing on a motion to block implementation of the law comes one day before it is scheduled to take effect.
    
Opponents filed the federal lawsuit Thursday. They say the law was passed earlier this year in "flagrant disregard" of the gun rights guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
