ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND, USA, July 5, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — In response to a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling, the Maryland State Police have suspended the “Good and Substantial Reason” standard for Wear and Carry permits.
This means that law-abiding citizens in Maryland no longer need to provide a reason why they should be allowed to carry a gun. Security Training Academy supports this move by the Governor and believes that it will help to ensure the safety of all Marylanders. This makes the process easier to obtain a permit for law abiding citizens. For more information or to sign up for a firearms safety course, visit our website or call us today!
