Outlaw Carrying Handguns

Decent Essays
The Supreme Court decided that it was unconstitutional that the District of Columbia denied Heller his right to get a permit to own a self-defense weapon in his home. They told the D.C (District of Columbia) that since they were not an official state they did not have the right to say that Heller could not have the permit anyways. Heller won the case and was allowed to get his permit. “While D.C isn’t a home for gun owners things have improved in the past few years. After losing to Heller, D.C abandon its attempt to outlaw carrying handguns, although people within the city still have to register all firearms (Woods, 60).”
