In a January 10th ruling, the U.S. District Court for the District of Idaho struck down a ban on the possession “of a firearm and other arms” on Army Corps of Engineers-controlled land.

A suit for a preliminary injunction against the ban was brought by Elizabeth E. Morris and Alan C. Baker.

In announcing the ruling, the court cited the District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) decision, indicating that in that case the Supreme Court described “the right of a law-abiding individual to possess a handgun in home for self-defense” as a “core right.”
