D.C. gun owners pressure for intervention in pending 2009 case
Case calls for right to carry in public
Question of the Day
Three of the plaintiffs in the case are D.C. residents and licensed gun owners who each had gun-registration applications rejected by the Metropolitan Police Department because they stated their intention was to carry the loaded guns on their person outside their homes. A fourth plaintiff is a New Jersey man who was charged with carrying a pistol without a license in the District after he was found during a traffic stop to be transporting a gun. He sought a license that would allow him to transport his gun through the District but was refused.
George Lyon, 59, one of the plaintiffs, said the wait for the case to be resolved has been frustrating — particularly as he has watched firearm cases in other states advance through other court systems.
“It’s very frustrating,” said the Northwest D.C. resident. “We have gotten no indication as to why it’s taking so long.”
