States Honoring District Of Columbia Pistol Permit (20)
District Of Columbia Pistol Permit News
(July 26, 2014) Licensed handgun carry now legal: In the case of Palmer v. District of Columbia, the U. S. District Court ruled unconstitutional the prohibition on the carrying of handguns outside the home for lawful self-defense. The Metropolitan Police Chief has approved an order which allows residents to carry a handgun only if the handgun has been properly registered with the District Police. Police also said that residents of other jurisdictions (non-residents) without felony records would not be charged under the ban on carrying pistols.
