Court: District Of Columbia District Court
Status: Pending

Short Description: SAF lawsuit seeks to overturn the District of Columbia’s ban on both open and concealed carry of handguns.
Long Description: The Second Amendment Foundation lawsuits seeks a decision against the District of Columbia’s laws limiting licensed carry of any handgun in public for any type of self-defense.
