Washington D.C. handgun ban ruled unconstitutional, again

DC hand gun lawWashington D.C. residents can now legally carry handguns in the streets of the District, according to a federal judge.

In his ruling, Judge Frederick Scullin Jr. wrote that the current D.C. ban on carrying handguns outside the home was "unconstitutional."

Second Amendment advocates now have another legal victory. And both Washington D.C. and Chicago have lost another round in their decades-old legal battles to ban guns from their cities.

In January, a federal judge overturned Chicago's laws banning retail gun shops and private firearm sales within the city limits.  Chicago officials had argued that firearm sales contributed to high crime rates in the city. But the judge in the case disagreed, saying “the evidence does not support that the complete ban sufficiently furthers the purposes [of crime control] the ordinance tries to serve.”
