    D.C. concealed carry applications soar while ‘good reason’ requirement not enforced

    Ten days after U.S. District Judge Richard Leon’s order blocked the city from enforcing a key provision of its gun laws, the Metropolitan Police Department had received 85 concealed carry permit applications — compared to the 61 applications it had received in the prior six months.

    The disclosure was made by the District’s Office of the Attorney General in a motion filed before a federal appellate court as city attorneys sought to overturn Judge Leon’s May 17 ruling — in which the judge wrote that the District’s concealed carry laws were likely an “unconstitutional burden.”

    "“The ‘good reason’ standard is critically important to the public safety of those who live in, work in, and visit the District,” the city attorneys office wrote in the motion submitted to the appellate court that defends laws adopted by the D.C. Council. “Without this standard, the District becomes a ‘right-to-carry’ regime, despite the Council’s legislative judgment, based on empirical studies, that such regimes are ‘associated with substantially higher rates of aggravated assault, rape, robbery and murder.’”

    If you can't find the evidence, just make it up! A lie told often enough.........

    The Circuit Court granted DC a stay, so it's as if the PI was never issued. MPDC changed their web sight within 48 hours. Good reason now required again. Funny it took months to fix the web site after DC lost 4 major rules in Heller III.

    Our Founders would be appalled that the local government of our national Capitol is so afraid of its own people being armed.
