Attorney General Racine Responds to Decision in Gun Case; Will Continue to Fight for Common-Sense Rules

WASHINGTON, D. C. – Attorney General Karl A. Racine issued the following statement in response to today’s D.C. Circuit Court ruling in Wrenn v. D.C., a lawsuit challenging the District’s restrictions on permits to carry a concealed handgun:

"The District of Columbia's 'good reason’ requirement for concealed-carry permits is a common-sense gun regulation, and four federal appeals courts have rejected challenges to similar laws in other states. As we consider seeking review of today's 2-1 decision before the entire D.C. Circuit, the ‘good reason’ requirement remains in effect. The Office of Attorney General is committed to working with the Mayor and Council to continue fighting for common-sense gun rules.”
