Concealed Carry Permit
D.C. has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, but they have been loosened a bit after a judge ruled in favor of three firearms owners who sued the city claiming it was virtually impossible to obtain a concealed carry permit.
Police in Washington say they have granted eight people permits to carry concealed firearms in public, the first to be approved since the city began accepting applications in October.
D.C.’s concealed carry law started Thursday, but police say only a few people have submitted applications for permits.
Under the House legislation, people with a concealed carry permit in one state could carry a concealed weapon in every other state that gives people the right to carry concealed weapons.
