D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals: ‘Law-abiding citizen’s right to bear common arms must enable the typical citizen to carry a gun’
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit on Tuesday put a hold on Washington, D.C.’s attempt to keep residents from carrying concealed handguns for self-defense, a move gun rights activists are considering a win.

“Perhaps the deterioration of American education is illustrated by the high correlation between the number of years a person has attended school and his inability to understand the words ‘the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ It is more likely, though, that those who interpret the Second Amendment to preclude an individual right to own guns are driven by their political agenda. Whichever the case, they do themselves no credit when they tell us that a simple, elegant sentence means the opposite of what it clearly says.”
