D.C. Leaders Propose Concealed-Carry Licensing Program

Wednesday, Sep 17, 2014 • Updated at 6:51 PM EDT

Washington DC Proposes New Concealed Carry for City of DC

D.C. officials proposed allowing residents and non-residents to carry concealed handguns if they show a reason for seeking a permit.

Mayor Vincent Gray plans to propose legislation that would set up a licensing process similar to a half-dozen so-called "may issue" states. Those states, including Maryland, reserve the right to deny a handgun permit to people who can't demonstrate why they need one. Thus far, the Supreme Court has declined to hear challenges to such policies.

The emergency legislation, which the D.C. Council will vote on next week, would not permit guns in government buildings, on public transportation, at stadiums, at places where public officials need to be protected and at establishments where alcohol is served, News4's Mark Segraves reported.

The District is seeking to let the police chief decide whether people have a reason to carry a concealed firearm, and officials said living in a high-crime neighborhood would not be a sufficient reason to obtain a permit. People who've received death threats or have been the victims of domestic violence are among those who could be granted permits.

The permits would be considered by the chief of police on a case-by-case basis.

"It has to be personalized. It has to be something specific," D.C. Attorney General Irvin Nathan said.
 
U.S. District Judge Frederick J. Scullin ruled in July that it was unconstitutional to ban licensed gun owners from carrying their firearms. He delayed the ruling for three months so the District could write new legislation.

Alan Gura, an attorney for plaintiffs in the lawsuit, said the proposal did not comply with the judge's order.
 
"In America, the police don't determine what rights we have good reason to enjoy,'' Gura said. "You don't need a good reason to speak, to worship, to vote or to carry a gun for self-defense.''

Handgun possession was banned in the District for 32 years before a landmark Supreme Court ruling in 2008. After that, the city wrote laws requiring residents to register their guns and keep them at home.

The concealed-carry requirements, which the D.C. Council will vote on next week, would be even more restrictive. Those seeking a concealed-carry permit would have to complete a "more extensive'' safety course than what's required for gun owners. Non-residents would also be able to get licenses if they meet the same standards. Open carrying of firearms would remain illegal under the proposal.
 
Gray, a Democrat and a member of the group Mayors Against Illegal Guns, made clear that he was establishing the concealed-carry program reluctantly, citing last year's mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard and the street violence in Chicago as examples of the need for stronger gun laws.
 
"I happen to be one that really does not support having people walking around with guns, concealed or otherwise,'' Gray said.

Earlier this year, a federal appeals court struck down California's requirement that residents must show they faced a "clear and present danger'' to receive a gun permit, although the ruling is on hold pending an appeal. Gura said the judge in the District's case followed the logic of that ruling, which found that residents only need to show a desire for self-defense.
 
The other states where residents must show a reason to get a permit are Hawaii, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York.

NOTE from Naples Gun School: Did you notice how it specificially did not mention defense of one's self as a valid reason to get teh carry permit? Their proposal also includes a "moving 1000' no gun zone" for when politicians are walking around DC... THAT will be interesting to watch them enforce. This isn't law there yet; hopfeully there will be some major changes to the proposal.

David is an excellent instructor. The class is excellent and exceeded my expectations with information on the laws of Florida, and as well to carry properly, load the weapons as well as placement of holding weapons.

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  Martha Hohenthaner

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  This was a very good class. I did not have to take it, as I am a Veteran, however it is a good idea. I learned a lot about Florida Law I did not know. It will in the long run help keep you out of trouble. David was very patient with my wife when we live fired, because she has arthritis and had a hard time pulling the trigger in double action mode. Good Job David thanks so much..Joseph Hohenthaner

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  The class was engaging and as fast paced as it can be. The instructor was knowledgeable and worked well with a class spanning all the levels of experience and age you can imagine. I also felt it was fairly priced, especially as you just had to bring yourself and an ID - all other supplies were, er, supplied.Cliff Elam 

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  Naples Gun Shop & School gets an A+ in my book! David and Ginny were great. I took the CWP class today 7/21/18. Both are extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to. David is one of the best instructors that I have had the pleasure of meeting. I highly recommend Naples Gun Shop & School. Best prices, Great training, and easy to deal with. I will definitely be returning to do further business. Thank you David & Ginny....see you soon!Nicholas Lupo

Naples Gun School - 5 stars  I've been a repeat customer for FFL transfers with Naples Gun School for quite some time. Dave's customer service and knowledge are second to none. After speaking with Dave for a few moments, you start to feel as if you have known him for quite a while. I look forward to continuing my business when the new location opens. - Robert Boyette

I really enjoyed the class yesterday, and it was very nice to meet David and Ginny. David is very knowledgeable, helpful, and best of all: has a sense of humor. I was more nervous than I thought I would be because this was the first time in my life that I've ever shot a semi-automatic weapon. David lives and breathes this stuff and his presence and ease with weapons was very calming for me when I was at the range. Ginny was also very supportive throughout the whole class. Thank you guys so much! It's a pleasure and I will be back to purchase supplies from you! - Shenandoah Webb

Naples Gun School - 5 starsTook the 3/31/18 class and loved it! Dave was very informative and his laid back teaching style made the 4 hour class fly by. Would recommend this class to anyone interested in a CWP. Thanks Dave and Ginny! - Kelly Gardner

Naples Gun School - 5 stars I’d like to thank The Naples Gun School for the time and effort they took in order to help me become a more responsible hand gun owner. By taking your CCWP class on 3.31.2018, I’m honestly a better person today than I was yesterday. Your course is not only interesting, but informative as well. The time we had together flew by. Throughout the whole process, they were calm and patient with every student. Especially after everyone seemed to drop their cartridges on the floor during the revolver training portion of the program. I highly recommend Naples Gun School to anyone that’s interested in becoming a CCWP holder. And I definitely will use their services by purchasing all my gun needs through their establishment. David & Ginny, thank you so much. I had a wonderful time!Chris Shaffer

Naples Gun School - 5 stars This class kept me very interested, informed and didn’t even realize 4 hours went by! Would recommend everyone to take this class! - Douglas Shaffer
