"...Right to Bear Arms" Lawsuit Filed

Chapter Two.

One question left unanswered by the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark Second Amendment ruling last year is this: When do law-abiding Americans have the right to carry firearms in public for self-defense? In a lawsuit filed against the city of Washington, D.C. on Thursday, the Second Amendment Foundation aims to find out.

..."This really isn't about concealed carry," Alan Gottlieb, founder of the Second Amendment Foundation, told in an interview on Thursday evening. "It's about being able to carry a gun, period. D.C. can prescribe some form or fashion or regulation or restrictions, but there's no way they can say you can't do it at all."

Fortunately, Wisconsin's AG has answered that for us.
