House Republicans Issue Statement on Suspension of “Good and Substantial Reason” Standard for Wear and Carry Permits

Annapolis – The House Republican Caucus issued the following statement in response to Governor Hogan’s direction to the Maryland State Police to suspend the “good and substantial reason” standard for wear and carry permits:

“For decades the members of the House Republican Caucus have supported and fought for the abolishment of the unconstitutional ‘good and substantial reason’ standard in Maryland’s wear and carry permit law,” said House Minority Leader Jason Buckel. “We appreciate Governor Hogan stepping up and taking action to put Maryland into compliance with the Supreme Court’s decision.”
