As Democratic members of Maryland’s General Assembly scramble to implement a new concealed carry gun policy for the state, House lawmakers heard testimony Wednesday on a bill to tighten restrictions on who can carry a firearm in public. House Judiciary Committee Chair Luke Clippinger’s bill seeks to limit who may receive a permit to wear and carry a gun. It’s in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in June in a case from another state that effectively also struck down Maryland’s policy as unconstitutional. The Maryland law required people to show a good reason to get a license to wear a concealed firearm.
