    Wow! Who would have expected the Federal District Court of D.C. would have been able to apply reasonable thought and analysis to an issue.

    We will have to see the way this makes it way through the courts though on the way to the SCOTUS. Far be it from D.C. to stop just because a District Judge ruled against them.

    The best part of this ruling is this:

    This is huge and sets a precedent throughout the 9th Circuit. It's like reciprocity, or a method for, carrying in general. It will be interesting to see where this goes.

    Very true, DC will fight this to the bitter end. I'm sure the DC Liberals were convulsing and foaming at the mouth over the decision.

    I would be interested in finding the implications locally. This area being considered in Multnomah County.

    It won't affect Multnomah as they do not completely ban both open and concealed carry. This was the reason the IL, CA and HI rulings found the bans unconstitutional, a complete ban based on LEO discretion . Regulations on the carry are still permitted.

    It was a Bush-era appointee - a conservative and former military man. Once again, the conservatives stand up for the rights that liberals seem all to happy to take away (or have taken from them).

    No doubt, the appeals were being prepared before the ruling was even issued. This 'win' will likely have little impact in a place that's looking more and more like a police state. We had to pass through there during a trip 2 years ago. While I was admiring the historical landmarks, the other part of me was just itching to get out of there - it just didn't feel like a safe place to be - because of the criminals and the politicians - heck, they're probably both the same people.

    Anti-gun D.C. officials will move fast to stay landmark CCW ruling

    Following the unusual Saturday release of the landmark right-to-carry ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr., that the Washington Times said yesterday essentially guts the District of Columbia’s gun laws banning carry of firearms outside the home, city officials are already working to put it on hold, the Washington Post reported today.

    "...a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards..."

    This was decided in Heller. Heller and his attorney screwed up by permitting relief to be a license.

    From Heller syllabus: "Because Heller conceded at oral argument that the D. C. licensing law is permissible if it is not enforced arbitrarily and capriciously, the Court assumes that a license will satisfy his prayer for relief and does not address the licensing requirement. Assuming he is not disqualified from exercising Second Amendment rights, the District must permit Heller to register his handgun and must issue him a license to carry it in the home."

    Although a rational person would consider a licensing requirement an "infringement", SCOTUS apparently does not.

    And he judge has already ordered a stay of the verdict - to give DC time to draft new regulations or to file suit seeking to reverse this decision... and just like that, DC sucks again.

    I wonder if DC's police chief will reverse her statement now or just start arresting unsuspecting people.
