D.C. Council Votes to Allow Concealed-Carry Guns

City Council passed legislation on Tuesday, Sept. 23 that allows for the carrying of concealed firearms in public in the District. The law was crafted in response to an August federal court decision that struck down the city’s ban on concealed carrying on constitutional grounds. Neither lawmakers nor concealed carry supporters are happy with the “emergency law,” which will only be in effect for 90 days. From there, the Council and courts will shape the future of concealed firearm carrying in D.C.
