DC gun registration requirements upheld
WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal judge Thursday upheld registration requirements that are part of the gun laws in the nation’s capital, approving of measures that make owners take a gun safety class, be photographed and fingerprinted and re-register their weapons every three years.
The city put the requirements in place after a landmark 2008 Supreme Court decision that ended a 32-year-old handgun ban in the District of Columbia. U.S. District Court Judge James Boasberg ruled that requirements the city put in place are constitutional.
This isn’t the first time a judge has approved of the requirements.
