    One of the men who sued the District for the right to keep handguns at home is taking D.C. back to court.

    This time, Tom Palmer wants the right to carry firearms in public.

    According to the Washington Post, Palmer says the Second Amendment is on his side. He claims the right to bear arms means the right to carry them with you.

    The case is pending in U.S. District Court.

    Palmer claims he wants to carry a gun for safety.

    Opponents said there's nothing safe about letting people walk the streets of Washington with loaded guns.
