D.C. Attorney General Ignores Court Order, Refuses Gun Permits – “Now the office of Karl Racine, the Washington, D.C. attorney general, has ordered D.C. government employees to ignore a court order from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. The order by the D.C. District Court Judge Richard Leon was to stop denying individuals applying for a concealed-carry permit from requiring a ‘good reason,’ and to immediately update the forms to no longer require that.” When it comes to gun control, the real of law often doesn’t apply, Constitutionally speaking. Speaking of bad weather ahead . . .

Will gun sales keep going up if Hillary Clinton wins? – Yes. In fact, they already are. Next question?

Could YOLO cure youth gun violence? – “More and more hospitals are working not only to save the lives of victims but also to prevent violence. One of those efforts is Christiana’s You Only Live Once (YOLO), the education program that brought the middle schoolers to the Newark hospital one day last month.” Shocker: gun safety training isn’t part of the program.

    • You’re not raising anything. The Quad 50 has a rate near 800rpm on a good day, feeding four different guns requiring constant loader attention. The Gau19 is selectable from 1000 to 2000rpm, (with the light vehicle mount being fixed at 1300rpm), all from a clean linkless feed belt.

  1. That da needs to be behind bars or suspended without pay or just fired and disbarred. Officials will continue to do things like this unless there are repercussions for their actions.

      • In order for him to be held in contempt someone must apply for a permit, be turned down and then go to judge to request a court order. If the DC AG refuse to honor the judges order then he can be held in contempt.

        • AGs are above the law, don’cha know?

          I’m trying to remember the last one who was taken to task for anything other than bribery/corruption.

        • “I’m trying to remember the last one who was taken to task for anything other than bribery/corruption.”

          What about the prosecutor in the Duke Lacrosse rape fraud?

        • Look folks, until he refuse to honor a direct court order, he is just talking trash. If someone shows up with a federal court order to issue him a permit and he refuses he is just running his mouth. i suspect that he is betting that nobody will go to court to get that order.

        • Nifong was never charged with any crime, and people still seem to think revoking his license to practice law is ‘extreme punishment’.

          Duty broke a gag order by defending herself from public claims she withheld evidence, but claims she never divulged case details which could be reasonably covered by a gag order. So she went to jail, which Nifong never did, despite the zero damage done by her possible transgression against a God of the Black Robes and the extreme damage done by Nifong’s open and willful breaking of the law.

          Sounds like our “justice” system to me.

        • I knew I could count on you guys.

          The Duke lacrosse prosecutor I guess one could argue either way. To me, his egregious behavior was politically motivated, so corruption. He wasn’t disobeying a court order. Apples and oranges.

          Geoff, I’m glad someone actually did some work to prove my overly broad statement wrong. Thanks!

        • According to an update to the Federalist piece, the DA has backed down.

    • It’s a two-party system: you’re either in government or you aren’t. And government really sucks at holding government accountable.

  2. Shady Katie Couric failed as an anchor, failed worse as an exec producer. She lies like Hillary Clinton, which is — how you say? — like a rug.

    • no matter who’s son he may or may not look like, that bigotry he has in his pocket there is still the same one that was around waaaay back when 95% of the people of his skin color was picking cotton or planting cane. Damn shame he hangs onto it, that thing started a civil war a while back.

  3. Whatever happened to throwing people in jail for ‘contempt of court’?

    I think I now understand why they call the 7.62×51 version a ‘mini-gun’.

    • Apparently judges (lawyers) don’t like throwing other lawyers in jail as this seems to be happening over and over. You would think they would get tired of having the DA essentially spit in their face.

  4. Wow they don’t even get away with that DC BS in Illinois. And NO I don’t agree with your FB top8 worst states. Illinois is about 12th lol

  5. “Karl Racine, the Washington, D.C. attorney general, has ordered D.C. government employees to ignore a court order”

    You know I may not like all the laws we have to live under but I follow them and try and be a good citizen, and I pay my taxes.

    Starting to wonder why I do these things.

  6. If the judge won’t find the DC AG in contempt, someone in DC who has been denied a permit needs to sue him and everyone involved in the process personally (in addition to the city government as well of course). Without repercussions these hoplophobes will never change.

  7. The fudge-packing/carpet-munching marriage ruling comes down on Friday afternoon and county clerks across the nation are working that weekend to get hundreds of marriages through.

    But yet something gets decided in our favor and it’s an endless set of roadblocks thrown up in defiance of the rulings.

    This Leftist sheet is getting real F’ing old.

  8. Beyond contempt, the AG and his minions should be prosecuted under 18 U.S. Code § 241 – Conspiracy against rights.

    If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or intimidate any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or because of his having so exercised the same; or

    If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured—

    They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

  9. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. If you live in an anti-gun city / state / county / district, etc:

    apply for a permit!

    If you have a clean record and get turned down, file a lawsuit. Notify the NRA / FPC / SAF / all of the above to help you if need be. If you get hurt when you could have defended yourself, I hope you punish the city / state / etc. that denied you your permit.

    • Which anyone who actually read the article would have discovered for him/herself. Now I realize that the people who run this blog are pretty busy, but still…this was old news yesterday, including the update. So all of you commentators above get a FAIL on reading comprehension, or on your attention span, which ever you prefer.

      • Yep, it’s all there in the original article:

        1. DC cops blatantly disobey Constitution and Court Decree, say it’s the AG’s idea.

        2. Reporter calls AG’s office, which basically says “blow us”.

        3. After the report is published, AG’s tax funded PR hack says ‘You must have your facts wrong, for the AG’s office would never do anything illegal’.

        And if you believe #3, I’ve got a nice bridge in Brooklyn I need to sell, cheap.

  10. Having just read this over at The Fedaralist It would appear that all is not as it seems, there is an update to the DC AG Story everyone needs to read, see the link below!

    Update near the bottom & c&p belowD.C. Attorney General Ignores Court Order, Refuses Gun Permits

    {q}~UPDATE: Rob Marus, communications director for the D.C. attorney general’s office, responded to this article with the following.

    “[T]he Office of the Attorney General has not and would not instruct any officer of the District government to ignore any Court order. As the District stated in its reply brief filed with the Court yesterday (copy attached), the Metropolitan Police Department last week revised its concealed-carry licensing website (http://mpdc.dc.gov/page/applying-concealed-carry-pistol-license) to read:

    “‘In light of the preliminary injunction issued by Judge Richard Leon of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in Grace v. District of Columbia, Civil Action No. 15-2234, the Metropolitan Police Department will not require applicants to comport with the ‘Good Reason’ requirement under D.C. Official Code § 7-2509.11(1)(A) & (B), while the injunction is effective (see ‘Grace Preliminary Injunction’ document, attached below). Applicants must still meet all other requirements when applying for a license to carry a concealed firearm. Applicants who were previously denied pursuant to the ‘Good Reason’ requirement may submit a new application. The application fee for re-applicants meeting this criteria will be waived. New applicants should use the existing forms until such time as the Department is able to revise forms in accordance with the court’s order.’”{/q}

    This ends my public service announcement ilmao good evening to all

  11. That gatling gun might just convince the neighboring vehicles to turn their fucking (c)rap-blasting stereos down.

  12. Here we have a clarification of the clarification: We’ve got 90 days before we have to say if we’re illegally denying your application. The cop who told you we planned to deny was releasing confidential information. We hereby publicly state that we will obey all court orders, in our own sweet time.

    From Reason Magazine:
    Update: Reason’s Brian Doherty gathered more details and reports that DC officials reject Watkins’ claim: “In a phone interview with Watkins, I got him to elaborate. The city has 90 days to consider the application, so he has not officially been denied yet. The incident occurred on May 17. But Watkins says what the receiving officer told him — he did not get the name — strongly implied that his lack of listing the ‘good reason’ would mean he would be denied, and that they had been told by the attorney general’s office to ignore the ruling. … But Robert Marus, a press officer for the D.C. attorney general’s office, vigorously denied that they’d given any such order to disobey the order in the meantime.” Right — just like DC would never circumvent the Constitution.

    —————–

    As Watkins wrote in a follow up email:

    I told [the officer taking his application] “you do understand that ignoring a court order could potentially find you in contempt of court.” They said “look sir, this is not a court of law. We just do what our superiors like the AGs office order us to do.” I insisted that they take my application anyway even if they were going to deny it in the end.

  13. Is this not at least the third time the DC A G has been poster boy for “prosecutorial discretion is bad?”

    There was “Flash illegal mags on T V, but because it’s an citizen disarmament advocacy piece, we won’t prosecute.”

    There was collector-guy who had an old cartrige. So, confiscate everything. Or am I remembering the guy with the antique cap lock, they went to lock up. Or the ex-military security guy who forgot he threw his gun in the glove box. Etc.

    Now, it’s “Court? What court? The law is what I say it is.”

    It’s like they want to turn a citizen having anything to do with guns into a potential life-destroying event … at the public prosecutor’s discretion, of course.

    Naaaah. That’s crazy.
