D.C. granted 90 day stay (until October 22nd) on Palmer vs. DC ruling
http://www.washingtonpost.com/local...6383f2-1738-11e4-9349-84d4a85be981_story.htmlA federal judge on Tuesday put on hold his decision invalidating the District’s long-standing ban on carrying handguns in public places.
The judge’s stay, in effect for 90 days, gives city officials and D.C. police officers some breathing room to respond to a ruling that overturned the District’s primary gun-control law.
Doxie McCoy, a spokeswoman for D.C. Mayor Vincent C. Gray (D), said the stay “gives us time to pause, and to act.” She said the mayor will continue to work with the D.C. Council “in terms of what legislation we need to put in. This is certainly welcome news.”
