Thread Name: BS: DC Gun Ban Banned
Subject: RE: BS: DC Gun Ban Banned
There is a lot of discussion in the Court's opinion (read the whole thing here), but the decision itself is pretty narrow. What it actually says is that the portion of the DC gun ban that applies to handguns kept in the home for personal protection is unconstitutional. In various parts of the discussion, they say that gun licensing (including of guns kept in the home) and bans on concealed carry are perfectly ok.
