A federal district court in Texas overturned a 1968 gun law prohibiting the sale of handguns to out-of-state residents,
granting those who live in Washington, D.C., the ability to travel to an out-of-state gun store, buy a handgun and bring it home without a middleman.
The ruling takes aim at the federal Gun Control Act of 1968, which prohibited handgun sales to out-of-state residents and was defended by Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.
, who argued that the law doesn’t violate the Second Amendment.
