Washington, D.C. is the only place in the country where no one is allowed to legally carry a gun outside the home.

District residents are trying to challenge the law in court, but the justice system has denied them due process. The almost five-year delay in Palmer v. District of Columbia is so extreme that some suspect political games.

Wow! Who's a thunk it?

Actually, assuming it is true, I wonder what constitutional recourse you have. You can't normally go to a superior court until a lower court has found against you. If the lower court just sits there and says nothing, you got nothing to appeal.

Maybe the way to go is either civil court to file suit against the judge, or else file a totally new case in federal court for denial of civil rights?

Judges are not known for being stupid, and they do understand what burdens of proof are, so I suspect if this guy is delaying for 5 years he probably has a plausible story to justify it. Not true, but plausible.
