It’s no mystery that the left is coming for our second amendment rights. Ironically, they want to take away our guns under the guise of public safety. That may prove harder to do after a landmark case just passed and paves the way for more just like it. Wait until you see this.
This is a major win!
According to The Washington Examiner. After a local resident filed a lawsuit this summer, a regulatory limit on how much ammunition a concealed carry handgun permit holder can carry was removed.
The Metropolitan Police Department’s Robert J. Contee III notified the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia Circuit that he had repealed the district’s ban on carrying more than 20 rounds, citing an emergency. The Reload has more.
For the second time in under a year, a notorious civil activist named Dick Heller succeeded in amending the district’s gun laws after suing in federal court. During the 2008 Supreme Court case District of Columbia v. Heller, Heller became a household name in the legal world for ruling that the Second Amendment protects “the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.”
Heller argued that the city’s regulation preventing concealed carry license holders from carrying more than 20 rounds of ammunition at once was unconstitutional.
He told the Reload that he was surprised not by his lawsuit’s success, but by the speed at which this complaint was dispelled.
Two days before MPD was due to submit a relief under the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. test, Contee agreed to revoke its gun carry ammunition limit without a judge’s intervention. The Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in June that New York’s law of requiring concealed weapons to be carried in public places is unconstitutional in Bruen.
As a result of this decision, concealed carry gun owners have no longer been restricted to carrying 20 rounds, as was the case in the 1970s. Licensed carriers are allowed to carry as much ammunition as they want, as long as it complies with the district’s other ammunition rules. There is no change to the 10-round magazine capacity limit.
This is a major win for the constitution and for law abiding Americans who conceal carry to protect themselves. This decision paves the way for expanding gun rights and we can expect to see more wins in the near future.
