How Many Permits Has D.C. Police Chief Cathy Lanier Issued?

posted on November 25, 2015

Yesterday we reported that District of Columbia Police Chief Cathy Lanier advised civilians that it is often preferable to neutralize an active shooter rather than waiting for law enforcement. Lanier has taken a firm stance against gun rights in the past, making it hard to imagine how D.C. residents could effectively follow her tactical advice. 

Now figures have emerged showing that Lanier has only issued 48 concealed-carry licenses in the past year; she has rejected almost 80 percent of the applications that she received. While she understands that victims of violent crimes often must act without waiting for police, it appears that she is happy to send most residents into such situations unarmed.
