#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.

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)
