Second Amendment Scholar Steve Halbrook Predicts D.C. Will Enact "May Issue" Statute

On Wednesday's NRANews Cam and Company on The Sportsman Channel, VSSA Life Member and Second Amendment Scholar Steve Halbrook talked about last weekend's ruling in the U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C. (Palmer v. District of Columbia) that struck down the District’s ban on handgun carry outside of the home. On Tuesday, a 90-day stay was granted to allow the City Council to comply with the ruling or file an appeal. During the discussion, Halbrook predicts that D.C. would likely enact a "May Issue" permitting system given the fact that after Heller, the Council actually made it harder to register a firearm.

It will be interesting, since the CA case against "may issue" was included in the ruling, this judge may not accept that alternative.
