The sarcasm is not subtle:
Woollard upheld Maryland’s “good and sub- stantial reason” license prerequisite because it “constitutes ‘a more moderate approach’ ... than a wholesale ban on the public carrying of handguns,” id. at *42 (citing Kachalsky v. County of Westchester, 701 F.3d 81, 98-99 (2d Cir. 2012)) – as though a wholesale ban were an available choice under the Second Amendment, and the current system were materially different from a wholesale ban, designed as it was to disarm virtually the entire population. Petitioners should be excused for not appreciating such moderation in the restriction of their rights.
