Anti-Gun D.C. Officials Hope To Win Battle Before Losing War

posted on May 28, 2015

Last week, U.S. District Judge Frederick Scullin granted a preliminary injunction stopping the District of Columbia from requiring concealed-carry permit applicants to prove they have “good reason” for wanting to carry. But it seems anti-gun officials aren’t willing to give up.

In a motion filed on Tuesday, D.C. Attorney General Karl Racine requested Scullin to stay the ruling while the District pursues an appeal. “Granting an administrative stay would minimize unnecessary disruption and confusion,” he wrote, adding that if the injunction were overturned, any carry permits granted in the interim may be subject to revocation.

Why Racine believes that transitioning to a shall-issue system would result in more “disruption and confusion” than continuing with the current system is a mystery to us. Fortunately, precedent set in Heller, McDonald and other Second Amendment cases is crystal clear, and we have “good reason” to believe the courts will ultimately favor freedom.
