NY: DC loss for gun control puts New York City’s laws at risk

The latest fight over gun control in Washington, DC, looks like one for New York to watch. It’s on the question of whether the District of Columbia can require residents applying for pistol permits to show “good reason.”
Short work was made of the question this week by US District Judge Frederick J. Scullin Jr. He struck down DC’s requirement that gun-permit applicants provide a “good reason” to own a firearm. And he set an aggressive schedule to speedily resolve the granting of a permit to plaintiffs.
It’s not yet clear whether DC and its police chief, Cathy Lanier, are going to appeal the district court ruling. It is clear, though, that the case will echo in New York and other cities that require a showing of need to carry a pistol.
|Once again, the liberals let the truth slip out in their tirades of indignation:
"The city’s strict laws governing residents’ ability to carry a concealed gun would be vulnerable to the same constitutional objection as the DC gun laws."
GOD FORBID! Vulnerable to the very same constitutional requirement that it has been violating for 70 years?
This article, liberal **** piece that it is, is a gratifying sign that maybe, just MAYBE the totalitarian vice grip denying the natural civil right to arms is in its death throes.
