It is now up to the legislature, Gottlieb said, to craft a statute that recognizes the right of ordinary citizens to carry outside the home, without a sea of red tape or a requirement to prove any kind of need beyond the cause of personal protection.
SCOTUS shot down DC's draconian gun laws in the Heller case. These laws made it impossible to own handguns and after the Heller ruling it is now ONLY nearly impossible to own a handgun.

Frankly, smart folks might just start carrying, knowing that in the very unlikely event they face prosecution, they have an excellent defense in that the law they’d be accused of violating is unconstitutional under the Posner ruling.
Of course, for the first guy who gets caught, it will be an expensive and unpleasant process, so I’d be VERY discreet.
