” Washington, D.C. has never allowed residents to carry guns outside the home in modern history, but that may be about to change. The Supreme Court is primed to take on the controversial issue of what, if any, limits are allowed to the Second Amendment right to bear arms in the Drake v. Jerejian case.

  On Monday, the court could announce whether it will hear the petition of John Drake, an ATM owner who carries large amounts of cash but was denied a carry permit by New Jersey because it does not consider self-defense a “justifiable need.”

  The case challenges whether the seven “may issue” states can force citizens to show a special need to carry a firearm for self-defense. The District of Columbia denies all carry rights. If the court overturns Drake, it would force the nation’s capital to come up with some procedure for residents to legally take their guns outside the home.”
