First Photo of Legal Open Carry in DC in 70 Years?

It wasn’t until 1932 that a permit was required to carry a concealed weapon in the District of Columbia. It was legal to carry pistols openly until 1943. At the time, it was clear that the prohibition on open carry did not apply to long arms.

In 1973, pushed by Democrat President, Lyndon Johnson, the District of Columbia was granted “home rule”. In 1976, the new District government passed the Firearms Control Regulations Act of 1975. The law went into effect in 1977. It has been over 70 years since it was legal to openly carry a pistol in the District of Columbia.

In the recent court decision on Palmer v. D.C., judge Scully cites heavily on the Peruta decision in the Ninth Circuit, saying it is clear that their exists a constitutional right to carry guns outside the home, and that the existing bans on the general carry of guns outside the home are unconstitutional. Peruta strikes down the local discretion to deny carry permits to the vast majority of applicants.

The D.C. Police Chief has ordered the police force not to arrest people carrying pistols unless they have felony records. One unknown second amendment activist has taken the opportunity to obtain a photograph of himself openly carrying in the District.

He will likely be the first of many.

Update: D.C. attorneys have requested a stay for 180 days. Here is a link to the request.

Added by Dan Cannon of GunsSaveLives.net: Please note, the current ruling only applies to handguns, not long guns, and DC residents still have to adhere to DC gun/ammo registration laws. This is a fluid situation that could change on a day to day basis. Please use caution.

But don’t get too comfortable… ‘Un-Elected’ Progressive Supreme Michelle Obama Moves To Make National Gun Confiscation A Reality

Well it appears that Michelle Obama is not yet done championing her own agenda. According to recent reports, Michelle recently decided to appear in Chicago to beg for more gun control. Chicago was an interesting choice for the venue, given that they have both the strictest urban gun control laws, as well as the highest homicide rate in the nation.

Also true to the Obama way, Michelle decided to make herself the focal part of the story. When she spoke of Hadiya Pendleton, the teenage girl who performed at the Obama’s Second Inauguration and was shortly after killed by gun-fired, she couldn’t help making the story about her own struggles.

“Hadiya Pendleton was me and I was her,” Michelle told the audience, “But I got to grow and go to Princeton and Harvard Law School and have a career and a family and the most blessed life I could ever imagine. And Hadiya, well we know that story. Just a week after she performed at my husband’s inauguration, she went to a park with some friends and got shot in the back.”

In addition to talking about herself, Michelle took the opportunity to push stricter gun control laws in Chicago. The agenda is nothing but hypocritical, given that both she and he children are provided armed guards wherever they go.

What do you think of Michelle’s statement? Is she just making the problem worse?

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
