WASHINGTON, D. C. – Attorney General Karl A. Racine issued the below statement on today’s ruling by United States District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly. The Court denied a motion by the plaintiffs for preliminary injunction in Wrenn v. District of Columbia, a lawsuit challenging the District’s restrictions on permits to carry a concealed handgun.

“We are pleased with the Court’s order, because it means the District will be able to continue enforcing its law requiring applicants for permits to carry concealed guns in public to state a ‘good reason’ for doing so,” Attorney General Racine said.

A copy of Judge Kollar-Kotelly’s order is attached.
