FPC Asks Supreme Court to Strike Down Maryland “Assault Weapons” Ban

The petition for certiorari spotlights continued disregard by lower courts for Second Amendment protections recognized by nation’s highest court 

WASHINGTON, D.C. (December 16, 2021) — Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) is asking the United States Supreme Court to strike down Maryland’s unconstitutional ban on so-called “assault weapons” in a petition filed today. FPC’s petition seeks to have the Court overrule a misguided Fourth Circuit decision that held common semi-automatic firearms like the AR-15 rifle were “like M-16s” and unprotected by the Second Amendment. The petition for certiorari in Bianchi v. Frosh can be viewed at FPCLegal.org.
