Second Amendment advocates gained a victory in appeals court earlier today. A US Federal Court of Appeals struck down several of Washington DC’s gun laws, calling them unconstitutional.
According to a local media report:
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled 2-1 Friday that the city cannot require gun owners to re-register a gun every three years, make a gun available for inspection or pass a test about firearms laws. The court also struck down a ban on registering more than one pistol per month.
The court upheld other parts of the law, such as requiring gun owners to be fingerprinted and photographed and to complete a safety training course.
The rest of the laws governing firearms registration in DC have been upheld by the court.
The three judge panel was split on its decision 2-1.
