Good news for DC gun owners who want to apply for a conceal and carry license.  DC's  restrictive "good reason" conceal and carry law is modeled after Maryland's good and substantial law.  It will be interesting to watch if this case gets heard by the Supreme Court. 


D.C. officials will not be able to enforce the city’s strict limits on carrying concealed firearms on the streets of the nation’s capital under a court order issued Thursday.

The brief statement from a federal appeals court in Washington is the latest setback for the District’s efforts to restrict the carrying of guns in public places to people who demonstrate a “good reason” to do so.

The District’s top lawyer had asked the full U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to rehear a challenge to the gun-control law after a panel of three judges ruled against the city in July. But on Thursday, the appeals court declined, without explanation, to revisit the case.
