Washington D.C. Issues Grand Total of 8 CC Permits


For years, it was entirely against the law to carry a handgun in the nation’s capital. In the home of the U.S. Constitution, the right to bear arms was flagrantly stolen from the citizens of Washington D.C. That changed last September, when, under federal order, the District was forced to change the law. They would begin issuing concealed carry permits. As we begin to see the effects of this law, it is becoming clear that the city is still in violation of the Second Amendment.

Instead of doing the right thing and enacting a “shall issue” policy, the D.C. City Council opted for a restrictive May-Issue policy. Applicants had to prove their need for a handgun in order to get the license. According to officials, simply living or working in a bad neighborhood was not sufficient. Applicants would have to prove a specific threat in order to qualify. Predictably, this policy has resulted in very few licenses being issued. Out of 69 applications, the city has thus far only approved 8 of them. Eight D.C. residents will now be able to carry a concealed weapon. And they believe this satisfies the federal ruling?

11 people have been denied a permit thus far, and the rest are still waiting to see the outcome. City officials such as Council Chairman Phil Mendelson are far from being ashamed of the low numbers. To the contrary, they are beaming with pride. Mendelson, a Democrat, boasts that the city has developed a permit-application process that is among the most restrictive in the United States. “The law was designed to weed out those who don’t have a need to carry.”

Alan Gura, the lawyer who has represented challenges to D.C.’s gun ban, said that the miniscule number of applicants proves that “the process is not constitutional.” In response, Councilman Mendelson said, “He must be thinking that everybody should be able to carry a firearm.”

Hmm, why would he think that? What could possibly lead someone to think that “everybody should be able to carry a firearm?”

Among the restrictions the city has placed on getting a license are a $110 application fee, 18 hours of training, and the aforementioned “need.” Applicants must prove that their lives would be specifically imperiled in order the qualify. With these restrictions in place, it’s actually surprising that they could even find 8 people to qualify for a license.

Washington D.C.’s new mayor, Muriel Bowser, has proclaimed herself a proud member of the anti-gun establishment. “You have a mayor who hates guns,” she told a crowd of supporters earlier this month. “If it was up to me, we wouldn’t have any handguns in the District of Columbia. I swear to protect the Constitution and what the courts say, but I will do it in the most restrictive way possible.”

Ah, doesn’t that just ring with the freedom Americans treasure? I’ll follow the Constitution, but I’m gonna hate every second of it. That’s what we want in our politicians, right? Imagine if she got up there and said that about the First Amendment? “I’ll protect free speech, but only in the most restrictive way possible.” There would be rioting. But since the left has managed to infect the country with anti-gun lies, Bowser’s comments are actually mainstream.

Gura insists that he will continue to challenge the D.C. gun laws in court. One can only hope that federal courts realize that the Constitution is not a document around which politicians should be trying to find every loophole possible. It’s there for a reason: to protect our rights from fascists like Bowser and Mendelson.

  1. OldPatriot32 says

    More evidence the nation’s big cities are largely governed by leftist anti-gun zealots. Their brains cannot process the phrase “shall not be infringed.” It’s OK for gangbangers to flood the streets with illegal guns, killing almost at will, (Chicago & South LA are the Wild West all over again) but God forbid honest and patriotic Americans should carry! Pathetic bunch of losers, for the most part.

    1. Jarhead says

      Not sure about comparing those sewers with the Old Wild West…..they had a hell of a lot of hangings back then to get rid of the bad guys and make them pay for their crimes……Today dishonest FED/GOV employees work at DEATH BY DELAY (See AZ VA) and other criminal acts to receive bonuses and numerous other perks – – in short: Today crime pays – – if you work for the Mafia OR the US FED/GOV.

      1. Scouse says

        I think the rich and famous (Politicians included) are quite correct, guns are not needed!

        In fact all their Body Guards need to be disarmed, at once! A hi-capacity Pistol in a holster, in a densely populated City! How dangerous! In fact Obama has so many armed Secret Service Agents, he has enough to have them in his Daughters School!

        Crazy! The risk to all those little children!

        1. Larry Wilson says
        2. ForPeteSaiche says

          In a crowd, any gun owner should know how to eliminate collateral casualties to any legitimate target via periphery and trajectory analysis. Visual acuity testing and an annual training mandate should be added to the 18 hours of pretraining and the psychological screening. This would make most legal gun
          owners safer than some trigger happy police. The majority of police are level-headed and have
          everyone’s safety in concern, yet they can’t be everywhere. When good people bear arms, unlawful crazies are better kept at bay. A concealed weapon (kept with discretion) reduces both others perceived need/envy, and cavalier criminal activity. Armed and legally trained citizens, combined with police, keep everyone safer.

            You bet your boots they do.

        3. RMCSRET says

          Scouse then please tell me why DIANE FIENSTIEN (D) Senator from California
          carries a concealed weapon in her purse?

          1. Ray Taylor says

            ‘Cause she’s a demonrat, liar and hypocrite.

          2. Mark Clemens says

            ……Because her and her husband are bankrupting the Postal Service, so they can make $1,000,000,000 by brokering the selling off of the vacant properties?
            She might know, the rest of us hate her.
            I bet that Old Bag would be the FIRST to shoot up the room if someone yells
            “He’s got a gun!!!!”

          3. 454 casull says

            Boy MARK you are spot on ‘I for one can’t wait for that bitch to croak and I would love to be at her death bed and remind her that all her GUN CONTROL BULLSHIT was a colossal failure so she can enter the afterlife knowing she was absolutely USELESS as a human being.

          4. David Fitzgibbon says

            ” please tell me why DIANE FIENSTIEN (D) Senator from California
            carries a concealed weapon in her purse?”
            Maybe there aren’t many places to hide one in a dress.
            I’ve seen many womens purses, and by the time they’ve found the the gun they would be gone anyway.

          5. RMCSRET says

            Good point but not on the ISSUE.

          6. 454 casull says

            Cuz the law does’nt apply to her and her libturd friends ‘only the law abiding american citizens can’t protect themselves.

          7. Larry Wilson says

            She is more important than all the rest of us. Just like Michael Bloomberg and so many of the others. Us peons just don’t get all the same rights. Liberals just get more right’s than most of us. I think it’s funny how they will allows you rights if you agree with them but, as soon as you disagree….no more rights for you then!

          8. 454 casull says

            NOOOOOOOO SHIT .

        4. David Fitzgibbon says

          “I think the rich and famous (Politicians included) are quite correct, guns are not needed!”
          Yeah, Geronimo got along without one for a long time.

      2. Gene Husky says

        It is understandable why Washington doesn’t want any gun permits.The crime bosses are there.They want to carry the guns to protect themselves from law abiding citizens.Some in the White House need to face a firing squad for treason.

        1. Croco Dile says

          The term “government” implies legitimacy – it means the exercise of “authority” over a certain people or place. The way people speak of those in power, calling their commands “laws,” referring to disobedience to them as a “crime,” and so on, implies the right of “government” to rule, and a corresponding obligation on the part of its subjects to obey. Without the right to rule (”authority”), there is no reason to call the entity “government,” and all of the politicians and their mercenaries become utterly indistinguishable from a giant organized crime syndicate, their “laws” no more valid than the threats of muggers and carjackers. And that, in reality, is what every “government” is : an illegitimate gang of thugs, thieves and murderers, masquerading as a rightful ruling body.

          1. katladyWA says

            Chicago was the test city for the aforementioned gang.

        2. 454 casull says


    2. Croco Dile says

      “Government” is a purely religious belief – a faith-based acceptance of a superhuman, mythological entity that has never existed and will never exist.

      The belief in “authority”, including all belief in “government,” is horrendously dangerous and destructive. The belief in “authority” dramatically impacts both the perceptions and the actions of various categories of people, leading literally billions of otherwise good, peaceful people to condone or commit acts of violent, immoral aggression. In fact, everyone who believes in “government” does this, though the vast majority does not realize it, and would vehemently deny it.

      The belief in “government” is by far the biggest obstacle to mutually beneficial organization, cooperation, and peaceful coexistence. This is why true civilization can and will exist only after the myth of “authority” has been eradicated.

    3. pappadave says

      Actually, the “Wild West” wasn’t all THAT “wild.” In general, people were less in peril from guns then than now…particularly with most everyone HAVING one and able to shoot back.

      1. 454 casull says

        Yeah ‘the WILD WEST term is over used ‘things were a lot more QUIET AND CIVIL cuz everyone had them and everyone knew it .

        1. bobfrommosinee says

          It was back east where the murders were taking place in the big cities where the carry of guns was being tightly controlled.

          1. 454 casull says

            That is where all the high crime rates are ‘just look at chicago .

    4. David Fitzgibbon says

      I still believe that the “right to bear arms” clause in our constitution supercedes congress.
      But I imagine lawmakers live in protected communities with armed guards at the gate and riding in their luxury limos. They don’t have to worry.

      1. 454 casull says

        Of course not ‘they all have the SECURITY we want but can’t afford .

    5. 454 casull says

      Yup ‘a day is coming where everyone will again carry like in the old days and you won;t need no stupid permit to do it cuz guns will become a way of life to those who want to remain FREE AND ALIVE ‘BRING IT ON.

    6. azabigail says

      Shoot, this Lib government SELLS guns, ammo, etc to drug lords ie; Fast and Furious, they give money to terrorists, and import both into our country, yet they want to deprive American Citizens of their rights. They have completely lost any reason to be respected and trusted.

  2. kotoc says

    Ha ha ha! Why am I not surprised? It makes me wonder if they’re concerned with more people having a CC permit, the criminal most likely to be shot at is living right there in D.C. and resides in the White House? (I know, that’s a tacky thing to say… but I still wonder.)

    1. 454 casull says

      Not tacky at all ‘why do you think the troops have to have their weapons unloaded when OBUNGHOLE is around them .

      1. kotoc says

        I didn’t know that!! Hmmmmm … it makes you wonder why, doesn’t it? LOL!

  3. Dennis Derstine says

    The politicians don’t care, they have armed security. Wonder what they would do if they had to put up “gun free zone” signs outside their homes? Wonder how well they would sleep at night?
    Want to reduce gun crime? Make illegal possession an automatic 10 years, committ a crime with a gun another automatic 10 years, then the 10 years for armed robbery. Bye bye scum bag! 30 years with no parole.

    1. pappadave says

      Except there’s no such REAL thing as “illegal possession.” The Constitution does not say, “…shall not be infringed–unless you’re a convicted felon or some bureaucrat thinks you’re a mental defective.” It says, “…the right of the PEOPLE to keep and bear arms SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.” “Infringed” means “INTERFERED WITH.”

      1. Dennis Derstine says

        You do have a point. Convicted felons should not have guns, if you can’t follow the rules you have no protection or need to be in possession.
        We should not need to prove a “need”, just a need to exercise our right.

        1. pappadave says

          Sorry, but I don’t need some bureaucrat’s “permission” to exercise a right ratified by the Constitution–at least not until the 2nd is repealed. Secondly, why should some guy “convicted” of mail fraud be exempt from a right guaranteed to all free citizens? Or how about someone found guilty of vehicular manslaughter? What did he do that warrants taking away his rights as a citizen?

          1. 454 casull says

            Hear you dave ‘right on.

    2. David Fitzgibbon says

      “Make illegal possession an automatic 10 years”
      No such animal. Only people arrested for illegal use should be prosecuted. Our constitution provides legal arms possession rights for all citizens except those prosecuted for illegal use.
      If you think those kind of laws work good move to Russia!

    3. 454 casull says

      That would be a good a good idea ‘unfortunately the libs don’t deal in good ideas or common sense.

  4. Saxondog says

    This from the same city which allowed a CRACK HEAD MAYOR FELON to continue in public service after smoking crack,getting busted and jailed,convicted,and then returning to public payroll? Oh yea real smart bunch of Liberals we have here. Could we possibly mention the decade in which D.C. was holder of the Murder by firearms capitol as well?

    1. Mark Clemens says

      …….Well the people of DC don’t want their Mayor shooting anybody over a Rock. Would you?

      1. Saxondog says

        Very witty reply. well said. lol and funny.

  5. James Andrews says

    I read this a couple of days ago. No wonder people carry illegally! When the corrupt thieves in this region think they can disobey the Constitutional rights of the people, then the people must disobey their unconstitutional laws, and carry anyway. Everyone in Washington Should carry, period. They don’t have enough jail space to lock everyone up in!

    1. David Fitzgibbon says

      ” the people must disobey their unconstitutional laws, and carry anyway.”
      The constitution supercedes congressional fallacies. Congress cannot nullify our right to bear arms. Even if they did the crooks would still carry. It is our right and duty to protect our families and homes by any means available.

      1. James Andrews says

        You have that right Mr. Fitzgibbon!

      2. 454 casull says

        Nicely done friend .

    2. 454 casull says

      Yup ‘if I lived there I would ‘F**K the law ‘my safety and that of my family takes precidence.

      1. James Andrews says

        Me too…but I have no desire to live anywhere near that cesspool!

        1. 454 casull says

          Me either ‘I like it here in northern minnesota ‘It’s cold but the air is clean and there is very little to worry about in a small town cuz we all have guns and are KEEPING THEM.

          1. James Andrews says

            You got that right friend…I’m in Maine. Same up here-very cold and tons of snow on the ground now, but we have a lot of water, land, and lots of outdoor activities like fishing, hinting, boating, camping. hiking, etc. And unlike the Nazi like states, we still have some gun rights here. I don’t want to leave!

          2. 454 casull says

            If I could live anywhere else it would be there ‘WE have beautiful fall colors here but i’ve heard MAINE IS OFF THE CHARTS FOR FALL BEAUTY.

          3. James Andrews says

            It is; unfortunately, it’s a hard state in which to earn a living, as the job market is very limited, and the state government is too big, and too inefficient and inept.

          4. 454 casull says

            Yeah ‘that’s probably why i’m still here although I love it .I never went to college yet hold down a job that pays 23.00 a hour so It PAYS to stay here since my wife is a SAH MOM and we plan to home school our kids .

          5. James Andrews says

            I average between 15-20/hr, sometimes more, but my work is no steady, but by the calendar. So I have busy times, and slower times. It’s been a tough winter, though last week and this week are solid for me. Take care, and stay warm, and thanks for standing with all of gun owners out here. We need to fight the idiots every single day f the week in order to preserve these rights. Better to fight them in the courts, than to have to fight them in the streets. If they continue in their idiocy, it may come to that someday. Hopefully we all can avoid that. But Americans must stand together, and never ever allow the corrupt lawyers and politicians disarm us, ever!

          6. 454 casull says

            Won’t happen while this AMERICAN’HUSBAND ‘FATHER and lover of freedom is still breathing and I don’t think I’m going out on a limb by saying millions agree with me .

            When I retired, I was making over $630 per DAY, which worked out to be almost $79/hour, based on an 8-hour day. That’s the sort of wages that the oil and gas industry pays.

          10. pappadave says

            Please explain how to hint outdoors and then tell us how hinting outdoors is any different than hinting indoors.

    We can only hope that if someone is killed because of Bowser’s type of stupidity that it’s someone close to her.

    1. Valor says

      That won’t make any difference to these anti-constitutional freedom haters. Gun control isn’t about crime reduction, never has been. It has always been about power over the masses by the ruling elite. Gun control laws got their start by Demorat politicians attempts to prevent recently freed slaves from exercising a newly gained constitutional right.

      1. BigD9105 says

        You are absolutely correct. Most of the black population does not know who helped set them free. It was the Republican Senate & Lincoln, who also was a Republican. When everything goes to crap in that Shet hole of a city, they will wish they had armed the American Public.

      2. 454 casull says

        Absolutely 100 percent correct ‘IT;S ALL ABOUT CIVILIAN CONTROL by the govt ‘nothing more.

  7. fred says

    If you don’t want to uphold the Constitution don’t run for office in the first place. The more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens means most criminals won’t be emboldened to commit crimes they wouldn’t have tried without such a deterrent. I realize that “common sense” is not so common anymore, get these people who want to break OUR laws out of office and send them to jail, without any entourage who DO have guns! Bloomberg is prime example of such hypocrisy as is Feinstein!

    1. 454 casull says

      Yup two turds that were not flushed fast enough and crawled out and ran for office.

  8. Honh Kloch says

    You made a mistake on you gun statement In Wisconsin you can carry a loaded gun as long as it is exposed in in plane sight and holster I have done it it can be loaded. A Wisconsin law.

    1. Valor says

      There are several states that do it that way.

    2. David Fitzgibbon says

      Open carry is legal in Michigan too.

    3. 454 casull says

      That’s a smart law ‘good job wisconsin .

      1. katladyWA says

        You all should live in Seattle…lol. But, what most don’t know won’t hurt them.

        I was in the SS office and they had a Fed lady who asked if I had any knives, laughing, I pulled out my keychain with a tiny pink, flowered my hubby gave me yrs ago. She made me take it to my car.

        Later, a very old couple came and were asked, “Do you have any folding little scissors in your purse or pocket?”. The last did…and put in car. I just sat there thinking of the ones I had in my purse. I never thought about them as being so dangerous.

        My husband carried and I always felt safe. I learned to shoot at 12 and still good at 80. Meant lady did…couldn’t

  9. Larry Wilson says

    In New York City before you had to have special permission from Mayor Bloomberg to get one there. After you proved you REALLY needed one. He only thought he was important enough to need protection then. Of course he had all of the NYPD and his private body guard to protect him. He even had NYPD protection when he went to the Bahamas for trips.
    I can only imagine what it is still like in New York ti get a CCW there. And DC is probably even worse. Obama has to approve it first!! I am so glad I left Illinois and Moved the Arizona 10 years ago. The really funny thing is that when I was still in Illinois, I had a CCW permit from Florida……they were more worried about my protection than Illinois. I worked for years to get it in Illinois with the same answers. I was told many times that if they pass a CCW there, “We will have shootouts in the streets” That was from the Chicago bunch….you know the Daley Machine officials. My answer to them was always the same…” You have those shootout every night now, but only the bad guys have guns!!” It was finally pass there now, after a federal judge ordered it and the Madigans allowed it…..or get fined. There are about 10 people that run that state and I am glad to not live there!

    1. David Fitzgibbon says

      ” I am so glad I left Illinois and Moved to Arizona 10 years ago. ”
      Sometimes I’m sorry I left Arizona. I lived in mile high Payson for about five years. It seems like everyone carried there, you never knew when you would encounter a rattlesnake or coyote. People even wore a holster in church and nobody thought it was bad.

  10. Jim Skiman says

    I think we should call a spade a spade. These anti-U.S. Constitution Communist jokers want one thing and one thing only! They want a so-called “living Constitution” something they can mold to fit their screwed up opinions of how all of us should live, think and breathe. Being anti-gun is simply a fast excuse to completely destroy and re-write the “Bill of Rights”. It is difficult to imagine our country being in worse shape after six horrible years of KING barry but if we give in to their way of thinking then we all may as well find another country to live in!

    1. 454 casull says

      Nope ‘I was born here and this is MY HOME ‘bathhouse barry can go back to his NATIVE KENYA .

  12. sosmartru says

    Everyone in that darn town(with the exception of felons and nutcases) has “a need to carry.” Don’t try and snow me, I lived and worked there before. People that made it home alive, didn’t get robbed, raped, beaten beyond recognition or shot, carried in spite of D.C. and its stupid, archaic laws.

  13. ForPeteSaiche says

    In a crowd, any gun owner should know how to eliminate collateral
    casualties to any legitimate target via periphery and trajectory
    analysis. Visual acuity testing and an annual training mandate should be
    added to the 18 hours of pre-training and the psychological screening.
    This would make most legal gun
    owners safer than some trigger happy police. The majority of police are
    level-headed and have everyone’s safety in concern, yet they can’t be everywhere. When good
    people bear arms, unlawful crazies are better kept at bay. A concealed
    weapon (kept with discretion) reduces both others perceived need/envy,
    and cavalier criminal activity. Armed and legally trained citizens,
    combined with police, keep everyone safer.

  14. fsa0033 says

    This is only happening because of the people you elect. If you are governed by criminals, the oppressive, the enabling it will only degrade this nation. Notice that D.C. is high on the criminal list. Murders are very high. The only ones with guns are the bodyguards of elected officials and criminals. Ironic that those that are proliferating anti-guns for all are protected by guns. All are not created equal in D.C.

    1. James Andrews says

      great point; the people need to wake up, and stop electing all anti-gun rights politicians, period. And any who choose to vote against these rights, should be immediately charged with sedition or treason and arrested and jailed for many years. That is how you stop this nonsense.

  15. 2001CPT35E says

    Someone should check to see if any of these 8 people are retired or current law enforcement officers or intelligence officers or some other type of federal employee working and living in the District. This would allow the D.C. Police to issue concealed carry to people who already know how to use a weapon, and who work for another agency already – but who just happen to either live or work in D.C. because of their job with the federal government. It also gives the D.C. Police a “no risk” issuance here – because if these were federal employees, then they know that these guys are not likely going to be getting into a situation where they will need to pull their weapon unless it is absolutely necessary. So, is D.C. really in compliance with the U.S. Constitution… NO! The Constitution does not say you have to apply for a Concealed Carry Permit in order to be authorized to carry a weapon. My final thought on this… how many thugs in D.C. right now are carrying weapons? Did they apply for a Concealed Carry Permit? I would estimate right now that there are about 10,000 thugs with guns walking around D.C. at any given time – combined with about 3000 foreign spies at any given time – and D.C. only issued 8 CC permits! Oh – I used to work in D.C., I know how dangerous it is there. Even with all the law enforcement agencies there – they only respond to a crime, they don’t prevent them from happening!

    1. David Fitzgibbon says

      ” This would allow the D.C. Police to issue concealed carry to people who already know how to use a weapon, ”

      Any ten year old kid who watches television should know how. I would think that Congress, of all people would know our constitutional rights to bear arms with or without their blessing! How much
      training would you need to learn how to aim and pull a trigger?? Five minutes? Learning how to tell the bad guys from the good is even getting harder! (especially in D.C.)

    You’re so stupid. How can Obamacare, VA issues, the IRS be scandals. These are scandals created by dumb FoxNews, TPs and Repubs to fool gullible Americans. I am not fooled by these dummies.

      No, you’re “fooled” by your own stupidity.

        Well, I can see you as an angry White male. You have been very uncomfortable for the last 6 years the WH is occupied by Black people. Wake up! You are like many racists who still cling to their old stupid conservative beliefs that Blacks are intellectually inferior
        to you as a White male. That is dumb and I have proved it. Get out of that dumb bubble.

          What an ignoramus! Obama is a disaster and only someone with their nose 1 foot up his bum would think this has anything to do with “race.” Typical, leftist idiocy. BTW, my black son, his black wife, their three black children and my 4 black great-grandchildren would be interested to hear me called a racist, you moron.

I have served with some great people from all over. balele is indeed an idiot.

    Chris is sure a dummy! How can you go to London to campaign as presidential candidate of USA? Britons are not going to listen or vote for Chris. After all Chris does not speak Cockney. He speaks NYer.

    It is typical that in a state controlled” country the citizens are at the mercy of the state police. They give up their freedoms for the greater good, whatever that is???Pure communism!!!

    The U.S. has more guns per capita in private ownership than any other country in the world. The country that’s #2 has roughly half as many. That would lead one to believe that the U.S. MUST

      RIGHT!!!! That should tell everyone something!!! DUH. My wife took Criminal Justice in College and said the same thing. I love when someone speaks the truth. I get tired of arguing with these idiots that try to make us believe the opposite! God bless you sir!!!

  20. Rightleaning says

    It might be time to take over the city council. They are fact-less based idiots. There are more shootings by illegal gun owners than there will ever be by permit holding legal gun owners. The liberals and democrats just cannot get over being scared of the American people. However, maybe they should be scared. The American people don’t like stupid.

    last I know My Constitution granted me the right to carry a firearm. I don’t see where it states not in D.C These politician and I say the word loosely, are braking federal law of this land and should be jailed for braking the law. What we need in D.C are Statesmen who’s knew that their position was to represent the people and not politicians who only represent themselves. America, the Deceleration of Independence states the following: , it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to
    institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and
    organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to
    effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that
    Governments long established should not be changed for light and
    transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that
    mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to
    right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the
    same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism,
    it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and
    to provide new Guards for their future security.–Such has been the
    patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity
    which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The
    history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated
    injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment
    of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be
    submitted to a candid world.

    He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing
    importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should
    be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend
    to them.

    He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large
    districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of
    Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and
    formidable to tyrants only.

    He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual,
    uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records,
    for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his

    He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

    He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause
    others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of
    Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise;
    the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of
    invasion from without, and convulsions within.

    He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that
    purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing
    to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the
    conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.

    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of
    Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.

    He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

    He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.

    He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to
    our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to
    their Acts of pretended Legislation:

    For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders
    which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:

    For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences

    For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring
    Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging
    its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument
    for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:

    For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

    For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

    He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

    He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

    He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to
    completethe works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with
    circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most
    barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

    He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas
    to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their
    friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

    He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored
    to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian
    Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction
    of all ages, sexes and conditions.

    In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in
    the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only
    by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act
    which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Now you know what rights we have as a free nation, but if we let them do what they want to us, then we are to blame.

    1. pappadave says

      Wrong. The Constitution doesn’t “grant” any rights. It merely affirms that your rights EXIST, just by being a free citizen. The 2nd doesn’t say, “The people hereby have the right….” It says, “…the RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE….” therefor declaring that the right ALREADY EXISTS.

      1. John says

        It states the people shall have the right to keep and bear arms, this is what it states and this right , shall not be infringed upon.which means , If I choose to own a firearm and carry it, that is my right. It dose not say I need a permit to carry one.

        1. pappadave says

          No it doesn’t. Read it again. It says “A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” It doesn’t say “This constitution hereby grants the people the right to keep and bear arms”…which it would HAVE to in order for the 2nd to GRANT that right. It presupposes that we already HAVE that right by virtue of our being free citizens. The drafters of the Constitution agreed this was a NATURAL right. If it IS a natural right (and I believe it is), then you DON’T need a “permit” issued by some petty government bureaucrat in order to EXERCISE that right.

  28. bill says

    Mendelson , schumer , Bloomberg , feinstein. anyone see a pattern here? these people all have armed guards or carry permits. why don’t they want the rest of us to have the same right? they join the gutless lawmakers that do not punish law breakers because a large majority of lawbreakers are a supposed minority and it might cost these anti constitution politicians some votes.

  29. Eli Charlie Noseworthy says

    MENDELSON is full of SHIT, there are no special requirements or needs to obtain CC PERMIT, the rest of the denied should bring a class action suite against that LEFTIST PIG MENDELSON.

    1. 454 casull says

      Yup ‘years ago in minnesota before I got mine the first CCP’S were issued by the police chief with the words UNDER PROTEST written across the face ‘people got together and this was removed as well as the COMMUNIST PIG POLICE CHIEF .

  30. hora says

    Dem liberals are a deep evil root, but evil never be will win, be will intend, nothing more and doing suffer citizen. That are OK for destroy liberals any where. 2016 be will be another very big defeat.

  31. Laddyboy says

    The questions I would like answered are:
    1.) Who do these 8 people know in the government?
    2.) What party do these people belong to?
    3.) What do these people do for a living?

    The answers to these questions would explain a LOT as to why the Government is contrary to the Constitution of These United States of America. The “may issue” states need to become “shall issue” when a law abiding Person requests a CCL. There is no explaination necessary other than “I want to be able to protect my life and/or my family’s life. The RIGHT to carry is already given in the Second Amendment.

  32. Mark Clemens says

    The ENTIRE BILL of RIGHTS is being molested by the very politicians who say they will Preserve, Protect, and Defend the document! We all need to pause, and see how Federal and State Law Makers have raped the FOURTH AMENDMENT.
    We have “No Knock” searches (raids) were law biding citizens are killed…..”Woops! My bad” said the SWAT team leader, and Judge.
    If you drive through Tennessee and have a large amount of cash ($2,000 or more) The Police can confiscate it; even if you haven’t broken the law. Just suspicion of being a drug dealer…. I bet your State has similar laws.
    If a larger group of people don’t stand up and TAKE BACK our BIRTH RIGHTS, we will die w/less rights than we were born with. This is NOT how a FREE nation works.
    You should die w/MORE RIGHTS than you were born with; not less.
    Think about it…………

  33. junkmailbin says

    no sense in trying for a civil rights violation case with the communist DOJ.

  34. Terry Hamblin says

    Makes you wonder if the big cheese in charge of DC and the Mayors of all the big, liberal, cities, have even studied their own police department information. One would think that if a police department wants to keep people from shooting people, they would have data pointing to where the problem and the culprits are. Ya can’t learn if ya don’t study history!

  35. QuisPercusit says

    What to you expect from the government of the city with the most gay, lesbian, transgendered, transvestite, brain dead, population Its a known fact that the first director of the FBI wore woman’s cloths when in. private. the Federal and city gubermint in the nations capitol Has a
    : Constitution? Wha ees dis Constitution? Wee don need no steenking Constitution. attitude.
