DC asks federal judge for more time to work on concealed carry ruling

The attorney general for Washington D.C. asked a federal judge Monday for an extension of the current 90-day stay striking the district’s prohibition on concealed carry.

Citing the fact that the district’s council will not reconvene until September, officials say the extra time is needed to work on new legislation to allow the first legal concealed carry in the nation’s capital since 1932.

In July, U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. struck down the District of Columbia’s ban on carrying guns outside the home in the case ofPalmer v. DC. This ruling, effective the day it was filed, allowed Constitutional carry in D.C. for a few days until Scullin granted a 90-day stay, set to run out Oct. 22.
