They may now be a “shall issue” jurisdiction but I’d be willing to bet that actually ‘getting a permit’ is NOT going to be easy. They can’t ignore the order but they can sure drag their feet and add “pre-conditons” on criteria that must be met etc. We’ve all seen how that works. Good luck to the honest swamp dwellers.
Now, more than ever, we need national reciprocity.
I’m clueless when it comes to court rulings and stuff like that but it’s my understanding that if a Federal Appeals Court in one “district” makes a powerful and important ruling like this it doesn’t necessarily mean that it applies elsewhere.That is,even though a top Federal Court has basically ordered DC to be “shall issue” a state like Massachusetts can still make you go through a two year application for a license and then,for no good reason,deny the application.That’s my understanding of how things stand here...you have to apply to the local police chief for a license and he/she can deny it without even giving a reason.
