Court Rules For DC Concealed Carry

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit entered an injunction Tuesday against a Washington D.C. law limiting the right to carry firearms outside the home, concluding that it may violate the Second Amendment.

The ruling is at odds with other federal courts that have generally limited the right to gun possession outside the home.

The law is third gun control regulation promulgated by the D.C. Council that has struggled in the courts. In its latest iteration, the D.C. law strictly proscribed the circumstances under which concealed-carry licenses may be issued. The court concluded these provisions may be unconstitutional.

“Bans on the ability of most citizens to exercise an enumerated right would have to flunk any judicial test,” Judge Thomas Griffith wrote for the three-judge panel. His opinion was joined by Judge Stephen Williams. Judge Karen Henderson dissented.

" enumerated right..."

How about also remembering (ALL you holier-than-thou slimy, two-faced, imperial, fascist, alcoholic, pedophilic, part-time princely paid politicians) the quote "shall not be infringed."
These wanna-be kings (and queens of one sort or another) somewhere along the line started believing THEY are the ones who get to tell "we, the people" which of our rights THEY will ALLOW us to have and use.
Somewhere along the line, it's looks like "we, the people" will have to remind them (just before we kick the chair out from under them) that our rights were GUARANTEED to us already and further, we don't want or need their input or their permission.
Go solicit some bribes or something.
