D.C. Shoots Down 99% of Gun-Permit Applicants

If anyone has been able to get a concealed-carry permit in the District of Columbia since it was ordered by a court to allow such permits, Alan Gottlieb would like to know the secret of their success.

That’s because the district’s police chief, Cathy Lanier, has rejected almost every applicant since the city’s new gun-permit law went into effect six months ago. Less than 10 people are known to have successfully obtained a permit, says Gottlieb, founder and executive vice president of the Second Amendment Foundation.

SAF announced this week it is suing the District of Columbia, challenging its highly restrictive concealed-carry permit process, which requires applicants to have a “good reason” to carry a weapon.

Lawyers for SAF say this policy violates the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
