Renewed Push For D.C. Carry

posted on April 1, 2015

Discontent with the Washington, D.C., city council’s continued stonewalling when it comes to issuing right-to-carry permits, two federal lawmakers are doing something about it. U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, have introduced “The Second Amendment Enforcement Act of 2015” in the U.S. Senate and House.

These measures would restore the fundamental individual right for law-abiding D.C. residents to keep and bear arms to defend themselves in accordance with the law. The D.C. permitting system would also become streamlined, allowing for more law-abiding D.C. residents to legally obtain a permit and carry concealed firearms for self-defense.
