Effective immediately – since DC has no other laws in effect concerning carrying a firearm except the one just struck down – DC is legally a Constitutional Carry area for non-residents at this time. Non-residents will be able to legally carry in DC under the same rules that we currently see in Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Wyoming, Vermont, and 99.4% of Montana. Residents appear to still be required to have a legally registered gun, though once they have that they will be able to carry without any additional license.

This is atomic-type news. I am still digesting the decision (click here) but I can only imagine heart attacks happening across every gun-control group based in DC.

I also imagine that the DC Council will soon come up with some Illinois-Cook County type of regulation but I also don’t know what kind of word Congress may have in the matter.

This one is monumental folks…monumental.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

  1. I’m putting money down that the first open carry tester of the repealed law will be *JACKED* up by all available units.

        1. Because under Peruta, only carry has to be allowed, no specification on CCW or OC. If they came out saying that OC is now legal in DC, they could then write a oppressive May Issue CCW law, and not issue permits to anyone.

  2. I’m still going to avoid DC like the plague, thank you. I’d be willing to bet local po-po didn’t get the memo.
