ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Maryland Gov. Wes Moore says he is planning to sign gun-control measures approved by lawmakers in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last year.

The high court’s ruling ended a requirement for people to demonstrate a particular need to get a license to carry a concealed gun in public. One of the measures removes the “good and substantial reason” language from Maryland law that the high court found unconstitutional. But the General Assembly also tightened gun laws in other respects.

For example, lawmakers passed a bill that would prevent someone from carrying a concealed handgun in certain areas.
