Judge: Montgomery County gun law preempted by state law

November 29, 2023

Rubin, in a decision issued Monday, said he will issue a permanent injunction blocking portions of the local law. “In summary, the comprehensive and intertwined scheme of existing state regulation preempts Montgomery County’s efforts…to place additional legal hurdles on wear and carry permit holders, state licensed firearms dealers and privately made firearms,” Rubin wrote in a 21-page decision.
