D.C. Court of Appeals Denies En Banc Hearing for Parker

{H/T ChestyP at THR}

The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied the city's petition for an en banc rehearing of the Parker case. Thus, the city has two options:

  1. Drop it and let the court's ruling stand, and modify their gun control law accordingly.
  2. Petition the United States Supreme Court for a writ of certiorari, i.e., appeal it.
If DC picks number two and SCOTUS grants cert, this will be the case in which it is decided whether the Second Amendment to the US Consitition protects an indivdual right, and to what extent.

Stayed tuned, folks.
