Washington DC seeks stay of Federal Court Ruling Legalizing the Carrying of Guns :: 07/28/2014

WASHINGTON — Lawyers for the District of Columbia asked a federal judge on Monday to stay his ruling that strikes down the city's ban on carrying handguns outside the home.

Attorney General Irvin Nathan filed a motion on behalf of the city and Police Chief Cathy Lanier, asking for a stay of at least 180 days to allow the D.C. Council to pass a licensing law that complies with the ruling. He also requested an immediate stay in the interest of public safety.

Meanwhile, Democratic Mayor Vincent Gray plans to draft legislation that would comply with the ruling, which the city may appeal. Doxie McCoy, a spokeswoman for Gray, said the mayor doesn't want to wait for the appeals process to play out before exploring what legislative steps would be needed.
