ANNAPOLIS, Md. —Gun-rights activists are challenging a handgun licensing law in Maryland in federal court.
Maryland Shall Issue, a gun store and four residents filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Baltimore on Wednesday.
They contend the law reduces Maryland residents' constitutional rights "to mere privileges." They also argue that the state's handgun licensing process is lengthy, expensive and invasive because it requires people to submit fingerprints to get a handgun license.
