July DC Ruling

24 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone

I just Read the article in the Political report in Shooting Illustrated about The July ruling By the US Court Of Appeals that found DC's "good reason" to be granted a CCW unconstitutional. Wouldn't the conflicting rulings between the DC Federal Court and the Jersey District Federal court force the SCOUS to a hearing to resolve the conflict? This is old news from back in July I'm just hearing about now. If its already been discussed  please direct me to the thread.

Thanks

Some are saying.

"good reason" is dead in a week in D.C. 

That's the result of the ruling. No en banc means the original ruling stands and they have a week to adhere (or request a delay).  If they decide to challenge to SCOTUS they will also probably ask for an injunction.

So they can either not challenge and have the reasonable need to carry abolished, or ask for an injunction from the Supreme Court?

Are there any other scenarios?

Ask for an injunction from district court pending SCOTUS...

Washington, D.C., said it is deciding whether or not to appeal the case to the Supreme Court but has advised the Metropolitan Police Department to continue enforcing the "good reason" clause until the appeals court orders otherwise.

 just wondering if the above statement by Washington D.C. about continuing to enforce this good reason clause would amount to contempt of court and could those "enforcing" it can they be charged accordingly as well as adding the appropriate civil rights violations on as well.

 This should be of interest to us in NJ and the other few states that deny rights as if national reciprocity or the SAPPA case or any pending cases become wins for America our communist politicians will certainly "advise" our state to continue to require justifiable need. 

 Any legal scholars able to answer this.

isn't dc one of the highest violent crime rates in the country? how can they justify not letting people carry proper self defense tools in light of that?

Liberal minds are incapable of reasoning, logic or any type rational thought.

Huge gun rights victory

D.C. Declines to Take Wrenn CCW Case to SCOTUS

Apparently fearing a devastating loss that could crush arbitrary concealed carry laws in a handful of states, the District of Columbia has declined to appeal its loss of a concealed carry case that struck down its “needs based” permit requirement, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) learned today.

The SAF case is Wrenn v. District of Columbia. A three-judge panel on the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the city’s “good cause” requirement as unconstitutional in July. The court declined a request for an en banc panel review last month.

“We believe the city was under intense pressure to take the hit and not appeal the ruling by the U.S. District Court of Appeals,” said SAF founder and Executive Vice President Alan M. Gottlieb. “If the District had lost the case before the high court, it would have dealt a fatal blow to similar requirements in California, New Jersey, Maryland and New York, for example, and that prospect had anti-gun politicians in those states quaking in their shoes.”

Gottlieb recalled that the District’s loss in 2008 when the Supreme Court struck down its handgun ban as unconstitutional under the Second Amendment opened a floodgate for legal challenges to state laws. That led to SAF’s 2010 victory in McDonald v. City of Chicago, which not only nullified the Windy City’s handgun ban but more importantly incorporated the Second Amendment to the states via the 14th Amendment.

“Let’s face it,” Gottlieb said, “anti-gunners are determined to cling to their dogma of public disarmament rather than admit that their resistance to common sense concealed carry reform amounts to nothing more than stubborn denial. These people simply do not want to enter the 21st Century. They refuse to accept the Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment protects and affirms an individual right to not only keep arms, but to bear them as the Founders understood.

“However,” he added, “this decision opens the gate farther to an inevitable high court confrontation because there are now conflicting opinions on concealed carry from the different circuit courts. Common sense says that the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause will not allow that conflict to continue.”

The city’s attorney general said the decision not to appeal the ruling was a strategic one. He worries if the city were to appeal to the Supreme Court and lose, it would affect similar gun regulations elsewhere including in Maryland, New Jersey and New York.

And SCOTUS can't address the circuit split without a case that challenges it, right?  So we're still F'd for 5-10 years

Its always a long game, the other side always plays and we should too. It does however make it a lot more likely that SCOTUS will have to take the next case that comes to them. That doesn't guarantee a win btw.

"We" need to keep challenging NJ's carry laws, eventually NJ will lose. If that happens at the appellate level we win even if the case doen't make it to SCOTUS.

Easy to say. Harder to do. Are you going to sacrifice yourself and family to be the test case?   Look a SAPPA. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and years of time.  Meanwhile you're a felon and career could be in jeopardy. 

The law is owned by the rich.

      Can anyone help me find the stats on how many people in NJ apply for CCLs, and how many of those applications get rejected?  
      I'm having an online argument on a military forum (I'm a retired Marine).  Some guy thinks concealed-carry-restrictive states such as New Jersey and California are not violating the 2nd Amendment since they have a process for getting a permit, my response is it is a de facto ban if the vast majority of permit applicants are denied, but it's hard to make that argument without stats to back it up.

      GAPP has another CCW class coming up. This one will be held at Shooters Sporting Center in Little Egg Harbor Township.... so all of you South Jersey shooters interested in CCW should consider coming to the class. Florida and Utah are the most sought after permits in the nation because they are among the most widely recognized. We provide all services necessary to get a concealed carry permit in both UT and FL including the applications, envelopes, passport photos, finger prints, notary seal, and UT CFP instructor seal... pretty much one stop shopping to get your CCW in multiple states. We also help you fill in the application so it wont be returned for being completed improperly. For a full course description, registration information, and other class dates, go to www.gappnj.com.

      Just learned that I will be going to Dallas-Fort Worth area of Texas next week for 10 days for work.  I plan to get my Texas License to Carry while there (formerly known as a CHL).
      I have today submitted my non-resident application online at the Texas Dept of Safety website and am in the process of scheduling an appointment with Identogo/MorphoTrust(in Texas).
       
      My question is has anyone here done this in the DFW area and have any recommendations for a training facility.  I did find several thru a Google search but wanted to check here for any recommendations.
      Once I complete this process I will post a full write-up.
       
      Thanks

      Some have recently said that now is not the time to file a case for carry in NJ, they said, we need to wait for the right time, the right case. but we, at the Po6 ask, when is it the right time, what is the right case? Is it post mortem? Maybe Carol's case would have been the "right case" Or maybe one of the other, now dead NJ innocent victims that waited for help?
      Will you, or a loved one be the next one to be "seriously harmed" while waiting? What about when we had a favorable Federal court to the 2A during the bush years?
      We appreciate everyone fighting in NJ, but we cannot rely on just 1 organization or person, this must be a multi-prong attack that includes Education, legislation, and litigation that may help in policy change in NJ.
      Do you know it takes years to reach the SCOTUS on a case, or to settle a Federal case? We may very well be in to the 2020 election by the time we reach it there, and that is no guarantee we will make it to be heard. but we need to be in the fight, in the pipeline. If you’re not in the fight, you're not winning. It may be a California case, Hawai’I case, a D.C case or maybe the NJ case, we don’t know, but we must fight and be in it, to win it.
       
      We, the Plaintiffs in this NJ case cannot gamble with politics, with time or with past lost cases, we must press on. We must fight. This challenge is different from the Drake case, it challenges the face of JN, the burden imposed on us meeting it and other challenges. Read the complaint attached, as the details are there. You may also follow us at www.partyofsix.org
      Finally, the lead attorney will be in NJ on June 25th for a meet and greet, Q and A session at RTSP at 130 pm. Pass by and meet the parties involved
      Thank you for your support
       
      Don’t forget, visit www.partyofsix.org for additional details

    • Apparently, you are being unreasonable, if the "research" gets in the way of purporting the desired agenda.   
    • I tried to contact the author for clarification on where the part about getting a gun in PA came from, but I didn't see any contact information. Am I being unreasonable expecting reporters to research their facts before printing an article? At least someone called out that fictional scenario in the comments section. 

    • Agreed. There's still a lot of "anti-gun" spin in the article. Although it's good that our folks got the "last word."  
      Excellent job Smokin!  
    • That mower, with a working engine, is worth about $2,000.00.  A problem/non working fixable machine can probably sell for about $750.00.  More if it's a hydro.  Harbor freight has 22HP vertical shaft engines for $800.00.  Relegating a commercial mower to a parts machine takes more than a blown engine. EDIT:  I just looked up Scag walk behinds and they only offer the 61" in a hydro.  So in it's current condition you can get close to $1,000.00 for it on CL or FB, If you slap a HF 22HP engine on it, you could sell for 3K.
    • The G2 trigger did cause some minor peening on the NPAP and C39V2 that I previously owned; however, the mushrooming settled down at around 500 round mark and it never impeded the functioning of either gun. You should be able to replace the TAPCO hammer with a surplus hammer without any issues; however, I think that you'd be fine with just taking a hobby file and knocking down the burrs on the carrier tail
