D.C. Attorney General to Appeal Concealed Carry Permits

by Madeleine Overturf  |  published on October 31, 2014

D.C. is has been accepting applications for concealed handgun permits for about a week but that could soon end.

News4’s Mark Segraves is reporting D.C. Attorney General Irvin B. Nathan will appeal a judge’s ruling requiring the city to issue concealed carry permits. If successful, the District could take away any permits originally granted.

The Attorney General will file the appeal by the end of the year, but D.C. will continue accepting applications until a decision is made.

Right now, applicants must specifically show why they believe they need a permit. Officials say living in a high-crime neighborhood is not a sufficient reason. However, victims of domestic violence or death threats are among those who could be granted permits.
