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 this make for DC losing on this issue?

"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. Burden should be on the state to show a compelling reason to refuse a permit.

 

Not the other way around.

damn, you guys are petty, childish and simplistic. No wonder gun control is a smoking wreck in America. It says a lot when morons like Ted Nugent are kicking your ass.

I've been told so on DU.

9. I dunno.

 

I checked Nasty Jack's blog for guidance; but he didn't link to this decision. An oversight I'm sure.

13. DC jerked him around on his fees for 3 years after Heller

 

He had to finally take the DC brain trust back to court to get them to pay up the amount awarded after a court review and approval of his billing.

That threatened them with another big bill if they kept screwing around.

They don't think the rules (or the constitution) apply to them they're "special".

16. Peruta is *pending* - going en banc in mid-June


Not a done-deal.......especially given the record of the 9th circuit. More likely, it will be overturned.

But thanks for the good news on DC! Judges do sometimes worry about being on the wrong side of history.
