Maryland’s Attorney General Brian Frosh filed a recent amicus brief with the US Supreme Court justifying the state’s ban of modern sporting rifles because those weapons have sometimes been used to commit mass murder. The ban is being challenged in Bianch v. Frosh a case seeking cert by the high court.
As the Mountain States Legal Foundation describes the case . . .
Maryland outlaws many common semiautomatic rifles, on the premise that these are “assault weapons” ordinary citizens should not own.
