I have no idea why this is even debatable and why anyone would need to show a “good reason to fear injury” in order to obtain a concealed carry permit in DC. How could anyone even passing through Washington, DC not have a “good reason to fear injury” in that city.
The Supreme Court already struck down the restrictive gun laws that DC had in place for years. Now, if you want to leave your home with your legally registered weapon you are prohibited from doing so. How is that anything but an infringement on the right to keep an bear arms.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit is hearing arguments Tuesday in two cases involving the law, which requires people who want to carry a gun in public to show a “good reason to fear injury” or another “proper reason” to carry the weapon. Reasons might include a personal threat, or a job that requires a person to carry or protect cash or valuables. Lower court judges have disagreed on whether the law is constitutional.
