Those who promote the right to carry around a handgun in public were no doubt disappointed by the U.S. Supreme Court's decision this week not to take up Maryland's handgun permit law.

Heller, the 2008 landmark Supreme Court case that spoke to the individual's right to own and bear firearms within the home.
