"A citizen may not be required to offer a "good and substantial reason" why he should be permitted to exercise his rights. The right‘s existence is all the reason he needs."
- Judge Benson Everett Legg - USDC (pdf warning)
"The right's existence is all the reason he needs." Damn straight. This is something us freedom loving gunnies have been saying for years.
Given that MD just got bitchslapped here I can't help but hope that Delaware is next. We are one of only a handful of states who still have discretionary "may issue" permits. Sure, we're not like Maryland where the standard practice is to deny all permit applications, but we still have faceless bureaucrats who can deny a person a permit for whatever reason they see fit.
