A massive step forward for gun rights, a Judge declared DC’s ban on carrying a firearm outside of the home unconstitutional.
Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote in his ruling in Palmer v. District of Columbia that the right to bear arms extends outside the home, therefore gun-control laws in the nation’s capital are “unconstitutional.”
The court ordered the city to now allow residents from the District and other states to carry weapon within its boundaries.
The District is sure to appeal the decision, but this opens up the doors for similar cases that are pending. One thing is for sure, this is a huge step in the right direction.

This particular case has been going on for five years, and there is now a call to the Mayor to take quick action to enact a concealed carry law that will provide protection to those who want to carry concealed.
