21 states want a court to overturn Maryland’s post-Sandy Hook assault weapons ban


An unprecedented 21 states want a court to overturn Maryland's assault weapons ban on the basis that the weapons are constitutionally protected.

"In their filing in support of the challengers, the states lay out four arguments, the first of which is that owning the prohibited weapons is constitutionally protected.


The law is being challenged by nine plaintiffs, including individuals, a retailer and gun rights groups.

The 21 states are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming."

South Carolina: Where they want you to be able to own a banned "assault rifle" but don't want you to be able to carry it. *scoff*
