Renewing your carry permit in DC

You may remember Emily Miller and her quest to obtain a permit to carry a firearm in DC. She got it. Well, now it’s time to renew and DC has made that process about as onerous as the original permit process. From her facebook page:

It’s been two years since I got a gun carry permit in DC. It expires and I have to apply to renew it. To do that, I have to pay for a four hour safety class and two hours range course – from one of the Washington Metropolitan Police Dept. certified civilian instructors. I also have to prove my life is still in danger. Oh and pay $70 in fees. And then the police chief decides if he will renew my permit. The The Council of the District of Columbia came up with this law, and it just is not constitutional!!

    I feel badly for people who live in D.C., but there’s really nothing else to say.

    Start making the stink now Emily so the new police chief will look bad for rejecting your application.

    National Reciprocity (at least as its written right now) would fix that.

    @Tim, me too, I would never live in a slave district or slave State. Rehearse the 1857 SCOTUS Dred Scott decision, the majority opinion of which kept black people as non-persons (slaves) lest “they be able to go armed everywhere they went” according to “the right if the people to keep and bear (carry) arms.” BTW, that ruling kept slavery legal in the United States until after the War Between the States and was overturned by the enactment of the 13th and 14th Amendments. Yet, the imposition of slavery is still with us in places like our nation’s capitol.
