Judge rules D.C. ban on gun carry rights unconstitutional
People who live in Washington, D.C. can now carry guns in public. A federal judge this weekend that the district’s initial ban is unconstitutional violating the Second Amendment.
According to court documents, the 2008 law mandated that handgun owners specify where they planned to use their guns and denied permits to anyone planning to carry handguns outside of their homes.
The judge ordered a reversal on the law immediately, but police officers have not yet been told to stop enforcing it.
The D.C. attorney general’s office is reportedly reviewing the ruling. This is our TOPIC OF THE DAY.
