  • Suck It Gun-Grabbers: Court Rules D.C.’s Ban On Carrying Handguns In Public Unconstitutional

    Federal Judge Frederick Scullin, of the U.S. District Court of the District of Columbia, struck down Washington, D.C.’s ban on carrying handguns outside a resident’s home. Scullin’s ruling makes it legal for D.C. residents to carry registered firearms in public.

    “There is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny,” Judge Frederick Scullin wrote in his decision.

    The District has already filed a motion urging the court to delay implementation of its ruling, according to NBC Washington. 

    A similar conceal carry ruling in California has already led to thousands of people applying for permits in that state.
