A Judge's Gift

Good guy Judge Fred Scullin teaches the idiots running Washington, DC, what the Founding Fathers intended so many years ago. Unfortunately they weren't listening.
On May 28, Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. denied the District of Columbia’s request for an administrative state in the ruling against the “good reason” provision in DC’s concealed carry permitting process.

The “good reason” requirement forced residents applying for a concealed carry permit to demonstrate a justification for wanting to carry a gun. Breitbart News previously reported that Judge Scullin ruled against the requirement on May 18, saying it “impinges on Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment right to bear arms.”

The administrative stay would have extended the effective date for Scullin’s May 18 ruling, giving the city more time to evaluate options. The denial of this stay means DC must immediately begin issuing permits without a “good reason” requirement.

The Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) represented the plaintiffs in the case.

Kid - I'm considering finding a lawyer to help me file a law suit against my county since they will issue a CCW but only for hunting and going to the range. No carry beyond that.
