D.C. surrenders to 2nd Amendment, gives up ban on carrying guns in public

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2015/apr/1/dc-gives-ban-carrying-guns-public/

Washington, D.C., will drop its appeal of a federal court ruling that overturned the city’s ban on carrying handguns in public, Attorney General Karl Racine announced Wednesday. City attorneys will instead focus on defending concealed-carry laws adopted by legislators in the months after U.S. District Court Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. declared the ban was unconstitutional.

“We need to focus our energies not on litigating old laws, but defending new ones that our leaders enacted in good faith to comply with court rulings while still protecting public safety,” Mr. Racine said. Up until Judge Scullin’s ruling in July, D.C. residents could only legally posses registered firearms in their homes. The Palmer v. District of Columbia ruling led lawmakers to approve a permitting scheme that would allow gun owners to apply for concealed carry licenses.

But gun owners have criticized the permitting scheme as too restrictive, citing the fact that the Metropolitan Police Department requires proof of a “good reason” why a gun owner would need to carry a firearm for protection. The Attorney General’s office is already defending two challenges to the permitting scheme in court.

Plaintiffs in the Palmer case have asked Judge Scullin to review the city’s concealed carry permitting scheme to determine whether it complies with his order. Meanwhile, gun owners who were denied concealed carry licenses have also filed a lawsuit challenging the city’s rules on the matter.

2. DC should get with the program.

v. Heller and v. McDonald are the law of the land. 100% now and forever.

22. I think he's saving it for some kind of big reveal.

But I've lost interest in knowing what it's supposed to mean. Listen to Freud. Sometimes a lame catchphrase is just a lame catchphrase.

8. McDonald's never said that.

Honesty is important which is why gun-control advocacy is a dying religion today. Their acolytes simply can't be honest. Bullets will never be obsolete, not when I have a RCBS reloading setup and can make 100% reliable ammo anytime I want too.

10. They surely did. Go into MacDonalds and ask for Breakfast and they will say NO after 10pm in NJ

They never served breakfast after.

BUT now voila, they will shortly go 24 hours of breakfast

Never say never

doesn't matter if you can make them
they won't do any good. You can have a zillion but if they won't do any good, it matters little.

12. They never said they never would. And NJ is a pretty sorry state.

McDonald's has tried this before so it isn't new. Like the fact that the 2nd Amendment protects an individual right. It matters that v. Heller will live on long after you are gone. It's a fact of life, 100% forever.

Millions of us make our own firearms, and make our own bullets and cartridges. And please in the future know the proper words to use so we can properly and intelligently converse.

3. I urge every Democrat out there to spend their limited time & effort pushing for DC statehood.

After all...look how likely such efforts are to bear fruit, given the current makeup of the House and Senate!

Never happen.

Puerto Ricans don't want it they get the benfits of statehood without paying Federal income tax now.

9. DC not intended to be a State

Read your History

The District was created so the Nations Capital would NOT be in any of the States.

Anyone who doesn't like that concept is free to move to any of the 50 States of the Union

15. And it also needs 38 states and 2/3rds of the Congress to approve changing it

19. Because it will never happen.

Just as the state of Jefferson will never be allowed to happen. The congress people from for both the house and senate would be republicans so the feds won't let it happen, Kalifornia won't let it happen because of the loss of natural resources, mainly water.

18. This subject is about how the Liberals in DC lost on the gun issue. Stay on topic please.

We may have to find a workbook on this lesson play to keep this one between the lines on this learning review.

Like it or not, your ideas just got picked up with the dog poop and tossed in the garbage. They are giving up on the hand gun ban in public. The gun grabbers have lost miserably one more time.

Now, please stay on subject even if you find it hard to swallow. I've heard salt and pepper go good with crow.

They REALLY don't want their folks to be able to defend themselves.

Thanks for the update, Sir.
