D.C. Allows 1,000 More Choices Of Legal Handguns


Washington, D.C., has greatly expand the models of handguns that residents can own, a shift designed to stave off another lawsuit over its compliance with the Second Amendment, the Washington Post reports. New regulations, coming nearly a year after a Supreme Court decision that threw out the city’s gun ban, will allow residents to obtain legally at least 1,000 additional types and models of handguns.

The new rules give gun owners a broader array of choices for handguns to keep in their home. The change could mean something as minor as what color of weapon they can purchase, or weapons with additional design features.
