Anti-Gun Groups, AGs Mount Defense Of Bad D.C. Law

posted on September 10, 2015

The legality of D.C.’s “good reason” clause for concealed-carry permits continues to be at issue, and now a number of state officials—along with the usual anti-gun lobbying organizations—are rushing to its defense. According to WAMU, the attorneys general of Maryland, California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts and New York filed an amicus brief in defense of the law to the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. Also participating were the Brady Campaign and local groups including D.C. Appleseed and D.C. Vote.

The most recent verdict on the issue was from Judge Frederick Scullin, who threw out the clause putting the burden on concealed-carry permit applicants to explain why they need a gun. But his ruling was stayed by the appeals court, which will soon hear arguments for and against the law. NRA has announced that it will file a brief arguing for the “good cause” clause to be dropped.
