Public carry for all my DC friends!

DC has decide not to appeal an appeals court ruling to the Supreme Court. This allows the lower court ruling permitting public carry of guns in DC to prevail. The decision to not appeal was made so as to not jeopardize rulings in other jurisdictions and states such as NY and MD that upheld certain restrictions on ownership and carry. An almost certain decision by the Supremes to uphold the lower court's ruling tossing DC restrictions would have lifted most similar restrictions in those other states.

Make no mistake. This win for law abiding gun owners and freedom loving Americans everywhere was made possible by the appointment of Justice Gorsuch by Trump. Would not have happened if Sec. Clinton had won the election.

“...we must reckon with the fact that an adverse decision by the Supreme Court could have wide-ranging negative effects not just on District residents, but on the country as a whole.”

So the "win" for DC was really a loss for NY and MD. Got it.
No. Simply justice delayed. The pieces are in place. Their day will come. The separate appeals from their Circuit will be heard by the same Supreme Court and the DC decision will be one of several cited leading to MD, NY and others winning greater gun rights.
