WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- A federal judge has upheld a Delaware housing authority's ban on guns in common areas.
U.S. District Judge Leonard Stark ruled that the Wilmington Housing Authority can prohibit residents from displaying or using a gun in public areas. The judge ruled that while the restriction placed a burden on the plaintiffs, it was not unreasonable in order to maintain safety. The judgment against the housing authority was entered Monday.
The lawsuit supported by the National Rifle Association was filed in 2010 challenging a policy that banned guns in any part of the housing authority. The WHA changed the policy to apply to public areas following a ruling by the Supreme Court in a similar case that found a complete ban was unconstitutional.
