"May issue" carry permits and Equal Protection
Prof. Volokh notes a District Court ruling allowing a claim that an Iowa sheriff violated Equal Protection and the First Amendment by refusing a carry permit based on his political activities. Parts of the complaint were dismissed, for sundry technical reasons, and portions of the remainder may be mooted by Iowa's change to "shall issue."
The ruling is also noteworthy for its formating (no more Courier in 12 point) and its breakthru use of "complete flummadiddle" on p. 17. We may hope that both become universal in the future.
