Md. Resident Must Sue to Get Concealed Weapons Permit Renewed

By    |   Tuesday, 17 Aug 2010 10:46 AM

Raymond Woollard, of Baltimore, is suing to have his gun permit renewed. After he struggled with an intruder on Christmas Eve a few years ago, he managed to hold the intruder at gun point.

The Washington Post reports that, oddly, he was denied a concealed weapons permit after initially getting one:


That night made Woollard a crime victim for the first time in his life and also one of a select few Maryland residents to receive a license to carry a concealed handgun. But to Woollard's surprise, Maryland State Police denied his request last year to renew the permit, saying they thought the danger to his life had passed.

The agency said it was "because I hadn't been attacked" again, Woollard said in an interview. "They said, 'If you have any problems, you let us know.'"

Instead, Woollard filed a federal lawsuit July 29 to get his permit back, becoming the first person to challenge Maryland's gun control laws in the wake of two landmark Supreme Court decisions that have recalibrated the battle over gun rights and opened the doors to such challenges nationwide.
