Summary: Everytown filed this amicus brief in the D.C. Circuit in support of Washington, D.C.’s concealed carry permitting law. That law requires applicants for a concealed carry permit to demonstrate a “good reason to fear injury” or any other “proper reason for carrying a pistol” before they may receive a permit to carry a concealed handgun in public. Everytown’s brief demonstrated that the “good reason”/”proper reason” standard is of a piece with centuries of Anglo-American tradition, and fully consistent with the Second Amendment.
In 2017, Everytown filed a brief in support of a rehearing En Banc for the District of Columbia’s public carry system.
