D.C.: Old Laws, New Tricks?

posted on April 3, 2015

Washington, D.C., Attorney General Karl A. Racine announced Wednesday that he plans to drop the District’s pending appeal of a federal court ruling that overturned the city’s ban on carrying concealed guns. “We need to focus our energies not on litigating old laws, but defending new ones,” he said.

While it’s certainly a victory for Second Amendment supporters, Racine makes no bones about future intent: “The Council enacted a law that sets a process by which individuals may apply for gun licenses, which has superseded the law at issue in Palmer v. District of Columbia. Going forward, our energies are best spent focusing on defending the current law.” In other words, it’s gun-control business as usual in D.C.
