A gun-rights advocacy group is suing the state of Maryland over its measures to limit the number of concealed carry permits. The nonprofit group, ‘Second Amendment Foundation,’ filed the suit in the U.S. District Court on Friday over a regulation requiring citizens to provide a reason in order to carry a firearm.

According to the group, the measure reduces the number of concealed carry permits that would be issued, meaning that even if a citizen is law-abiding and has no criminal record, the state may not issue the weapon.

Maryland requires a citizen to demonstrate a “good and substantial” reason they would like to carry a gun on them. The Second Amendment Foundation is fighting back along with other plaintiffs.
