Grace v. District of Columbia


Defending D.C.’s “good cause” concealed-carry law.

Court: D.C. Circuit

Issue at Stake: Public carry

Summary: Everytown filed this amicus brief in the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to demonstrate that the District of Columbia’s public-carry law – which requires a showing of good cause or special need prior to issuance of a concealed carry license – does not violate the constitutional right to bear arms and is consistent with a centuries long Anglo-American tradition.
