Briefs in Woollard online
Gene Hoffman of CalGuns has them online. This is the challenge to Maryland's requirement to show "good and substantial reason" in order to get a handgun carry license (open or concealed carry).
Woollard lives on a remote farm; he was burglarized and attacked there (with police taking over two hours to respond). His attacker has a long record, and lives within three miles of him, and is now out of prison. He was denied a permit since he could not prove a threat outside of his own property. As his brief states, "To decide this case, it is enough to acknowledge what has long been established in our legal system: access to fundamental rights does not turn on some official’s whim. No “good and substantial reason” is required to exercise fundamental rights."
