Washington, D.C. -(Ammoland.com)- Students for Concealed Carry is excited to host its third National Conference in Washington, D.C., only days after the historic ruling in Palmer v. D.C. overturned the District’s ban on firearms carried outside the home.
Until this ruling, the nation’s capital remained one of the largest “gun-free” free zones in the United States. Despite these laws, D.C. remained on the list of the most violent cities in the country.
The decision handed down by Judge Sculling states:
In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny.
The SCC National Conference will take place on Tuesday, August 5, from 12 PM to 4:30 PM, at the National Press Club.
