As expected, DC gets 90-day stay on law (DC carry)
Virginia Citizens Defense League VA ALERT ^ | 7-29-14 | Philip VanCleave

Posted on 07/29/2014 12:55:37 PM PDT by RKBA Democrat

No surprise: effective immediately, DO NOT CARRY IN DC. The Court has given Washington, DC a 90-day stay on the ruling that nullifies DC’s “no carry of handguns” law.

DC will now be hustling to come up with some kind of carry law. Based on the tyrannical government there, you can bet it will be as restrictive as they can possibly make it. After all, why would they want to make DC safer for its citizens?

VCDL will continue to monitor the situation there.

It would be a scream if during that 26-hour period violent crime in DC went down, and then back up after this ruling.

Clearly, the municipal government of Washington DC is afraid of its constituents which, in a civil society is a proper state of affairs, much to be favored over the citizens having fear of their own government.

But this is not a civil society, Washington DC is proportionately a murder capital of America and the society is anything but civil. The city fathers are well aware of the level of gun violence in this town but they persist in blaming the guns instead of their own policies. When socialism fails the "reform" invariably invoked is not real reform but more socialism, or in this case, more statism.

So as Washington DC, like Detroit and so many other American cities descends into a dystopia of statist created misery, the government imposes more restrictions on freedom in order to deal with the symptoms of its own mismanagement.

They are terrified and rightly so.

Great accurate comments.

It seems what so many can’t digest is the fact that government could care less about what benefits America or the safety of law abiding America.

In fact, their policies foreign, domestic and punitive laws directed at the law abiding in the U.S. do just the opposite. They threaten not only our entire economy, but our safety and security right here in our own neighborhoods and towns.

And there is an inordinate amount of evidence to support this.

Would they have a 90-day stay of a ruling overthrowing censorship of the press? Or a 90-day stay of a ruling stating that something was discriminatory against blacks, or other privileged minorities?

I read the order. He granted them the 90 days, but he also noted that DC winning a stay pending appeal on the merits was not likely. However, he is going to give DC an opportunity to file a motion for a stay pending appeal anyways. The plaintiffs (Palmer et al) also get a chance to file a motion as to why a stay pending appeal is a no go.

The plaintiffs did not contest the stay. Kind of hard to win when that happens.

I guess we’ll find out how stupid the attorney for DC and the DC council is within the next three months. If they’re smart they’ll craft a carry law they can live with during the 90 days. If they’re stupid they’ll push the stay and appeal while doing nothing and be in the same place they were yesterday with the stay spent.

I tend to think they’re a little smarter than a rock. But not much. We’ll see how horrible the end result is. Sooner or later they’re going to tire of being the Second Amendment Foundation’s punching bag. And there is also the threat of Congress getting involved. So I think they’ll get carry but on a par with say Texas. Expensive and a pain but available.

The fact is that is that the 2A is an individual right to both keep AND bear arms. DC effectively banned the right to bear arms. I think in the end, they’ll be forced into some form of “shall issue” carry, though they will make it difficult.

Looks like there needs to be a show of force at the next DC council meeting. Just a little get together of a thousand or so 2A supporters to drive a needle in the point, sort of stick it home.

“Based on the tyrannical government there...”

The only legitimate government of DC is the Congress, which has the authority (and the responsibility) to legislate for the District “in all cases whatsoever”.

This morning on NPR they were lamenting that DC had made their gun laws so restrictive, they were certain to get shot down in court thereby putting at risk the so-called "common sense" (but only slightly less restrictive) gun laws that other cities have put in place.

I say, "Good!"

I sure hope something good comes out of it. You know I have a vested interest in seeing how this all plays out.

“The plaintiffs (Palmer et al) also get a chance to file a motion as to why a stay pending appeal is a no go.”

Per post #6 above, Palmer et al need point out to the judge that “gay rights” gets a ruling in their favor and the verdict’s effect is immediate and final ... so of course an enumerated right should in no way be subject to a “stay”. The verdict was clear...and a right delayed is a right denied.

It’s ridiculous the amount of time it took to decide this case in the first place. Almost 5 years!!!!
