    Major win in D.C. on 'good reason' requirement

    Two slightly different takes on the big win in D.C. over the rotten CCW "good reason" requirement there

    D.C. Appeals Court Strikes ‘Good Reason’ CCW Requirement

    In a stunning victory for concealed carry advocates, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of such a requirement in Washington, D.C., but the ruling could have a ripple effect.

    ‘Good reason’ CCW requirement in D.C. vacated by Appeals Court

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia has issued a permanent injunction against enforcement of a “good reason” requirement to obtain a concealed carry permit, with a 31-page ruling that contains some stunning language that should send a warning to other jurisdictions with similar rules.

    The bottom line in this ruling is a definite plus for the citizens of DC. It appears to me, however, that there is too much wiggle room remaining for laws that can and would likely restrict the carrying of arms by leaving the door open to define what a 'responsible ' citizen is, what is a common level of need and what are common levels of risk.”

    The Second Amendment includes no need nor leeway for any distinguishments either implied or expressed. "Shall not be infringed" bans any requirement or limitation to exercise the right.

    Anyone proven or assumed to be irresponsible with arms, if not executed, belongs in prison, in an institution for the mentally ill, or under full guardianship.

    D.C. will probably ask for an appeal to the full circuit which is now leaning heavily liberal with recent appointments.
