Federal Judge Strikes Down Washington DC Ban On Gun Carry Rights

Its about time.

Quote:
A federal judge in the District of Columbia on Saturday overturned the city’s total ban on residents being allowing to carry firearms outside their home in a landmark decision for gun-rights activists.

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.”

Click here to read the decision.

“We won,” Alan Gura, the lead attorney for the Second Amendment Foundation, told Fox News in a phone interview. “I’m very pleased with the decision that the city can’t forbid the exercise of a fundamental constitutional right."

Gura said he expects the District to appeal this decision but added, “We’ll be happy to keep the fight going.”

The decision leaves no gray area in gun-carrying rights.

Re: Federal Judge Strikes Down Washington DC Ban On Gun Carry Rights

In Canada our Supreme Court denied we have any similar 'right' to arms.. even though it should not be so according to British common law back to the Magna Carta

So you still fight for your freedom while our ultimate subjugation at the future whim of the 'crown' is all but assured...

I envy your win in principle and practice :) sigh
