Big 2A Win – Court strikes DC requirement

Big 2A Win – Court strikes DC requirement of “good reason” for concealed carry permit.

So, how many times does DC have to get their rear-end handed to them before they figure things out?

"As some of you may be aware, Attorney Alan Gura has been waging a legal battle against the District of Columbia (as well as other jurisdictions) based upon their unconstitutional infringement of the Second Amendment generally, and DC residents concealed carry rights in particular.

Having already won a court decision compelling the District–and in particular, it’s Police Chief Cathy Lanier (pictured above)–to issue concealed carry permits to lawful, qualified residents, Gura naturally ran into the usual anti-gun rearguard position: “Sure, we’ll issue permits–on terms of our own choosing. Terms that nobody except our rich friends and political comrades will ever be deemed to have satisfied.”

And those terms invariably require that the applicant have some special and unusual reason to be granted a concealed carry permit. This is the kind of restriction still being employed in liberal states like New Jersey and New York, and which was being employed in California until the recent Peruta decision by the 9th Circuit.

Gura responded to Lanier’s demand that applications show some special reason–above and beyond simply being law-abiding Americans with civil rights–by filing a motion for an injunction with the US District Court for DC, to prohibit Lanier from imposing those special conditions."

1. Can't wait til 50 state no exception CCW

fed mandated. Oh and that would be any pistol I can buy with any magazine with any ammo (screw you NJ). Its coming, the only thing the grabbers can wish for is a crazy mass murdered to hitch their wagon to.

Poor dems who will they blame for the shithole urban messes they made if they can't blame gunz...

Lets tee this up in 16, you know right in time for the elections.

17. steal guns and distribute them to

Muslims, and any other group hated by the right.

Steal from
vehicles and homes with nra stickers.

2D amendment states you have a right to arms that cant be infringed
Doesnt say you have to buy anything.
