DC Asks Federal Judge to Reinstate Carry Ban

The Washington Post reports that attorneys for the District of Columbia formally asked U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin on Monday to reconsider his July opinion striking down the city’s ban on carrying handguns in public.
In a 21-page legal filing, D.C. Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan and aides said that Scullin relied on opinions of “questionable logical and legal foundations” by a minority of courts, and said that no controlling court has found that the right to carry firearms outside the home is at the core of the Second Amendment.
DC officials still have not decided whether they are going to appeal the judge's decision or enact laws to comply with the ruling.
