Supreme Court Refuses To Grant 2A Rights Nationally

From Fox News:

In a stirring victory for those who live in the national’s capital, a panel of the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals recently threw out a D.C. ordinance that denied concealed-carry permits to anyone who could not show a “special” need for self-defense, what is referred to as a “good reason” requirement.  The problem is that other courts of appeal have upheld such restrictive laws and the U.S. Supreme Court has turned down appeals of those decisions, refusing to take up the issue of the Second Amendment’s application to carrying a weapon outside of the home.

This happened most recently at the very end of the Supreme Court’s 2017 term in June when it refused to take up Peruta v. California, an appeal of a decision of the Ninth Circuit upholding California’s good reason requirement.

D.C. Police Above The Law

From The Washington Times:

Using a Freedom of Information Act request, I uncovered emails between the chief, the senator’s (Diane Feinstein) staff and the sergeant at arms office in which they coordinated how to transfer the weapons, without technically breaking laws for which civilians have been jailed.

The D.C. police continue to flaunt the law in service of the Statist Senator Feinstein, while arresting non-violent “criminals” who dare to try and protect themselves from rampant crime in the Capital.
