The U.S. Supreme Court will not review Maryland's handgun-permit law.

The decision means an appeals court ruling — which decided the state's restrictive rules for concealed-carry permits do not unconstitutionally infringe upon the rights of gun owners — will stand, The Baltimore Sun reports.

The Supreme Court gave no reason for declining to hear the case.

Maryland is one of 10 so-called “may-issue” states which can deny a concealed-carry permit.

Permit seekers must show that they face a specific danger outside the home or have a job that requires a concealed weapon.
