The DC Circuit Court has denied the District government’s petition for an en banc rehearing in Parker v. District of Columbia, the 2-1 decision that found DC’s handgun ban unconstitutional. I assume the DC government will appeal; if the Supreme Court grants cert — as Eugene Volokh has predicted they will — the decision should come down by Summer of 2008. (If SCOTUS doesn’t grant cert, of course, Matt Yglesias will be able to buy that gun he wants.)
