​DC Carry Rights Decision

by Zachary Zalneraitis on July 29, 2014


Washington, D.C. – July 29, 2014 - ​Students for Concealed Carry is excited to host our third National Conference in Washington D.C. only days after the historic ruling in Palmer v. D.C. overturned the ban on firearms carried outside the home.

Until this ruling, the nation’s capital remained one of the largest “gun-free” zones in the United States. Despite these laws, D.C. was perennially on the list of most violent cities in the country.

The decision handed down by Judge Sculling perhaps states it best:

In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. 

We can only hope the march of progress continues and the option of effective self-defense continues to be restored to more individuals, regardless of what invisible line they cross.​

Students for Concealed Carry is a national, non-partisan, grassroots organization comprised of over 40,000 supporters which advocates for legal concealed carry on college campuses.
