DC Circuit Court declines to rehear Parker v. DC en banc

I’m a bit surprised to see that Parker v. DC won’t be going in front of the entire DC Circuit Court.

This morning’s decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia to deny a petition from the District of Columbia for a hearing of Parker v. District of Columbia before the full court was “right and proper,” said Alan M. Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation.

“This is a strong signal that the D.C. Court of Appeals, which is the second most powerful court in the country, feels the original ruling by Senior Judge Laurence H. Silberman is solid,” Gottlieb stated. “It is now up to the district to accept the ruling and begin the process of licensing handguns to be kept legally in district residences, or to appeal the case to the Supreme Court.

Interesting. Now to see if the Supreme Court will still choose to dodge it (I’m not entirely sure that they won’t).

    If the Supreme Court would say and do the same thing then the issue would be over, once and for all.
