Palmer v. District of Columbia following Sykes v. McGinness, is a case challenging the carry licensing in the District of Columbia. Though DC may license the manner of carry, DC must allow law abiding residents to carry a handgun in public for self defense.
From the calguns forum ( http://www.calguns.n...ad.php?t=327751 ) it sounds like a decision is long overdue, and some fear the judge may sit on the case to avoid having to rule in favor of 2A-protected rights.
If the judge ever rules on it, assuming he's forced to uphold our rights, could this mean a sudden victory here in IL? Or do we foresee another lawsuit necessary, or does the McDonald case mean that any ruling for DC regarding the Bill of Rights automatically must apply to states as well.
I've been on the edge of my seat for a long time waiting for a decision on Palmer v D.C. ... but am I being premature in thinking this could be a solid, immediate victory for RTC in IL?
