The number of applications for gun carry permits in Washington, D.C., more than tripled in the aftermath of a federal court ruling declaring part of the city’s law unconstitutional.

Between January 1 and May 18, the city received 45 permit applications, according to Sean Conboy fo the Metropolitan Police Department. However, after Judge Frederick Scullin ruled that the “good reason” clause contained within the city’s carry law was unconstitutional on May 18, applications increased significantly.

Between May 18 and June 26, the city received 140 applications, according to Conboy.


Go DC! Even though the amount was not very large in total, tripling in size is a pretty good indicator that it will grow. Good on the courts for upholding the Constitution!

You know, with the way that gun purchases ALWAYS increase during these supposedly Democrat led "gun grabs" you'd think there was a conspiracy from gun lobbies to create these situations.

No one is talking about gun purchases--these are applications for concealed carry.

Why bring divisive political rhetoric and conspiracy theories into it?

I wasn't trying to be divisive, just making an observation that has been bumping around in my head for a while about these gun issues and just picked the first gun thread I came across to post it in. It IS a conspiracy site. Don't you think that these connections are odd?

As for the OP. I'm glad. I have nothing against the 2nd Amendment.
