ATW: D.C. will appeal court decision overturning concealed carry ban

D.C. Attorney General Irv Nathan plans to appeal the late-July ruling that tossed out the city’s ban on carrying handguns in public.

The Washington City Paper news report:

The District plans to appeal a federal judge’s July decision to overturn the city’s total ban on carrying a gun in public, now that the judge who issued it has said he won’t reconsider.

Frederick Scullin Jr.,  a senior U.S. District Court judge in the Northern District of New York, ruled earlier this year that the city’s ban was a violation of the Second Amendment and that residents were entitled to carry their guns in public. D.C. officials immediately decried the ruling, saying it wasn’t in the best interests of the public. The District asked the judge to reconsider his ruling, which Scullin said a couple of weeks ago he would not do In July, the judge had delayed his initial ruling from taking effect until Oct. 22, allowing the D.C. Council time to establish who could carry a registered a gun in public and where they can carry those guns.

This subsequent legislation is currently in place now on an emergency basis. But, until today, Attorney General Irv Nathan and his office hadn’t said whether they would appeal the decision to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
