    U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon ruled Tuesday that city officials requiring prospective concealed carriers to make their case on why arming themselves is necessary is unconstitutional:

    “I find that plaintiffs have demonstrated a substantial likelihood of success on the merits of their claim that the District’s ‘good reason’ requirement is unconstitutional.”

    The suit, brought forward by Matthew Grace and the firearms advocates “Pink Pistols,” scored a major victory for gun rights with Tuesday’s ruling.

    The ruling is yet another check on some of the strictest gun laws in the country, which are only mirrored in nearby Maryland, as well as New York.

    Once in a while, we run across a judge in that part of the country that has some sense, and respect for the Constitution. But it still comes as a surprise.
