Gun rights debate returns
to Washington courtroom

By Ariane de Vogue. September 20th, 2016

Washington: The battle over gun rights returned to the nation's capital Tuesday, as a federal appeals court took up a challenge to a restriction that requires applicants for a license to carry a concealed firearm to demonstrate a "good reason" to fear injury to his or her person or property.

"This is the most important question in the Second Amendment today," said Adam Winkler of UCLA School of Law. "Whether people can carry guns in public and under what conditions is a major battleground."

Lawyers for District of Columbia called the license restriction an "important public safety law" and argued before a panel of the US District Court for the District of Columbia that the law should be allowed to remain in effect pending appeal.

"This case is in its infancy," said Holly M. Johnson, an assistant attorney general for the District.

But challengers asked the court to block it, arguing that "very few people" will be able to demonstrate that they are eligible for the permit. .......

And so, the absurdity of providing "good reason" continues - the implication often being that a person should perhaps have been attacked first before being issued a permit. How ridiculous is that? Of course, when it comes to this Brady Center attorney's quote -- "It is critical that law enforcement maintain its longstanding authority to prevent the rampant carrying of guns in public places" -- we see again the continued attempt to infringe upon the 2nd Amendment. No amount of carry restriction is ever going to have the slightest effect on the "gang-bangers" and criminals.
