FPC Urges Supreme Court to Restore the Human Right to Carry Arms in Public

Pallozzi, asking the Court to hear a challenge to Maryland’s “good and substantial reason” requirement for a firearm carry permit. The brief is available online at FPCLegal.org.
“As the brief explains, we believe this case is worthy of the Supreme Court’s review for several reasons,” said FPC Director of Research and brief author, Joseph Greenlee. “By now, nearly every federal circuit court has addressed the right to bear arms in public.

The result has been a different right from state to state, with the right essentially banned in many—leaving millions of Americans unable to exercise a fundamental right.
