    was that he be allowed to a) register his handgun with the DC police, and b) obtain an ownership license to keep it in his home in DC.

    As far as I know neither Heller/McDonald say anything about the intersection of the a right to privacy for gun ownership/public carry.

    That said, a dozen or so states passed privacy laws last year to keep concealed carry licenses name/address information private. I applaud those laws because there are legitimate reasons why someone could be licensed to carry concealed in public (e.g. judges, police, undercover police, victims of violence or someone who is being stalked). In New York, you have to convince a county official that you have "good cause" to carry a concealed weapon in public.
