DC gun control “good reason” requirement temporarily blocked

The US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia temporarily blocked a decision made last month by US District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. that stopped the District from enforcing the provision in its gun laws that requires a person to state a “good reason” for carrying a weapon in order to obtain a permit from police.

The Appeals Court noted:

The purpose of this administrative stay is to give the court sufficient opportunity to consider the merits of the motion for stay and should not be construed in any way as a ruling on the merits of that motion.
