After striking down D.C.’s ban on carrying handguns in public, a federal judge ordered a hold Tuesday on his ruling to give local government time to prepare, the Washington Post reports:

He must have gotten the call: “hey you were a little careless on the net a few years ago. We are not going to elaborate but it relates to a goat.”

On the plus side, Alan Gura expected and hoped this would happen. He wants to take this all the way to the top.

If that happens.......

This will give the local gov’t. time to pass another unconstitutional law to replace the first one.

AND, it gives US time to pass this name around:

Nothing nefarious here. Just SOP. The rules and precedent HIGHLY encourage Judges to do this. If not, the Appellate Court would have.

No one gave anyone a call.

It’s actually pretty normal.

Big changes take time, and this is a big change.

90 days is warp speed for a government.

Practice MRAP deployment techniques with those with Christian bumper stickers, or NRA decals.

Well yeah sure, it took them a few decades to come up with 25,000++ laws, regs, rules, taxes, as they slowly and incrementally eliminate the 2nd and other rights...

Like our lawless borders, it's just takes time to secure them....lol...You bet.

I'm getting that monkey movie feeling again...

What’s to prepare. Carrying is legal in DC.

OH WAIT. That’s where our rulers live.

“Gay rights” verdicts don’t “take time”, they’re immediate.
