Prior to last Monday's decision striking down DC May Issue concealed handgun law, there were only 26 permit holders

U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. decision on Monday to strike down DC's concealed handgun law contained some interesting information.  Over six months virtually no permits have been given out.  Part of that may be because very few people have been allowed to get permits to own a handgun (a separate process) and those that do might not believe that they will get approval.  From the Washington Times:
Since October, when regulations for the issuance of concealed carry permits took effect, through May 9, the Metropolitan Police Department received 107 applications and denied 42. It has granted 26 concealed carry permits. . . .

So where does this Leave the District, I in the appeals process? An En Banc hearing, or if the City appeals, straight to the Supremes?

Where does this sit in the Appeals process, if the District keeps fighting? An En Banc hearing of the court, or straight to the Supremes?
