Son Of Heller

Breaking: Decision in Palmer v. D.C.
"In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, 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. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District."

Holy shit!

Judge Scullin just opened the ball on Son of Heller.
In short order, in someplace like NFY or Chicongo, this will get applied to the states as well as D.C., just like McDonald did for Heller, and at that point, Sarah Brady and ChuckU Schumer may as well go home and slit their wrists in a tub of warm water.

DCPD must be $#!ing in their pants.
Anyone legally allowed to own a gun can carry a gun in public anywhere in the District outside of schools or official buildings.
