This Law Requires That You Have A 'Good Reason' To Carry A Gun -- Or You Don't Get A License

WASHINGTON — A case that may greatly expand concealed carry rights is now before a three judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit.

If successful, the challenge would overturn laws in the nation’s capital that allow citizens to carry a concealed weapon only if they have proven to law enforcement they have “good reason to fear injury” or have a “proper reason for carrying a pistol.”

Oral arguments took place in September, and a decision will be handed down in the coming months.

“This is the most important question in the Second Amendment today,” Adam Winkler of the UCLA School of Law told CNN about Washington, D.C.’s concealed weapons law. “Whether people can carry guns in public and under what conditions is a major battleground.”

Several D.C. residents are challenging the law. Under such laws only security professionals and people who transport valuables or large amounts of cash for their jobs — such as jewelers — generally qualify for a concealed weapons permit.

Important Precedent

The plaintiffs, gun-rights groups and several Republican state attorneys general contend the law violates the Second Amendment.
