#51: WASHINGTON, D.C. Murky. A federal judge in May 2015 rejected a short-term stay of a decision that blocked the District from enforcing a key provision of its restrictive concealed-carry laws — prompting the city to move to issue carry permits to the gun owners who had sued after being denied permits. But the judge left the door open for a stay — and even more legal wrangling.

In this May 28, 2015 photo, members of the fast response police units, known as Halcones, detain a suspected gang member, who was found out of breath on a bed following a chase by police, in San Salvador, El Salvador. Observers blame the worsening insecurity on the breakdown of a 1.5-year-old truce between the gangs and the government. While the homicide rate plunged, critics say the truce gave the gangs time to strengthen, train and acquire heavier arms than they had in the past. (AP Photo/Manu Brabo)

In this April 28, 2015, file photo, demonstrators stand in front of a rainbow flag of the Supreme Court in Washington, as the court was set to hear historic arguments in cases that could make same-sex marriage the law of the land. Gay and lesbian couples could face legal chaos if the Supreme Court rules against same-sex marriage in the next few weeks. Same-sex weddings could come to a halt in many states, depending on a confusing mix of lower-court decisions and the sometimes-contradictory views of state and local officials. Among the 36 states in which same-sex couples can now marry are 20 in which federal judges invoked the Constitution to strike down marriage bans. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana, File)
