Gun owners who successfully sued the D.C. government to overturn the city’s ban on carrying firearms in public will argue in court Thursday that new laws to regulate concealed carry are unconstitutionally restrictive.
Attorney Alan Gura has said in court filings that the system put in place by the D.C. Council, which requires gun owners to show a need for self-defense in order to obtain a permit, is unreasonable and that a federal judge should bar enforcement of the law.
But the D.C. attorney general’s office, which has appealed the case, argues that because gun owners are challenging new laws they should file a new lawsuit. (The Washington Times – Thursday, November 20, 2014 )
But the good news is so is Alan Gura!
