DC Wont Take Concealed Carry Case To Supreme Court

After days of consulting with the mayor's office and city council members, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine has reportedly decided not to fight a ruling that effectively strikes down the District's strict law that makes it difficult for gun owners to get concealed carry permits.

Sources told WTOP's broadcast news partner NBC Washington that Racine made the decision not to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court and will formally make an announcement later on Thursday.

The law, which requires that people show 'good reason' to carry a concealed weapon before they can get a permit, suffered a setback in July when a divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled that it infringes on residents' Second Amendment rights.

D.C. officials later asked the Court of Appeals to rehear the case as a full court. However, in a brief order last week, the court said it would not reconsider the ruling, leaving the city's attorney general with no choice but to take the case to the U.S. Supreme Court or back down.
