Washington DC Is Now Allowing Concealed Carry

Alright, so I know I’ve been a bad blogger for the past month. Work and travel has gotten the best of me, but I’m back now and with some semi great news to kick us off.

Get this. Yesterday The District of Columbia Council voted UNANIMOUSLY to allow people to carry concealed handguns in the nation’s capital.

Do you know why? Because the court ruled that banning handguns in public in unconstitutional, which resulted in the draft of an emergency legislation.

Although there are some restrictions, this is still a big step and can open a lot of doors for gun rights in this country. Residents and visitors will still have to prove that they have a legitimate reason to carry and will have to take extensive safety and training courses in order to have their application considered. All applications will be reviewed and either approved or denied by the Metropolitan Police Department Chief, Cathy Lanier.

What do you think of this new decision?
