The Maryland Court of Special Appeals has followed in the footsteps of the U.S. Supreme Court’s newest precedent on firearm permit requirements, finding its own “good and substantial reason” requirement to be unconstitutional.

When applying for his 2020 carry permit renewal, William Rounds indicated on his Maryland application that his “good and substantial reason” for carrying a handgun was related the amount of cash he would carry with him to purchase silver from people he didn’t know, according to Special Appeals Court’s opinion filed Wednesday.
