But just try to *get* your pistol into and out of DC through VA, MD, WV, NC and surrounding routes into DC. Has to be very stealth gambit.
Canoe down the Potomac....
I have frequent need to travel through or stay overnight in NY-NJ-MD, NY does not issue nonresident permits by official policy (there is no application process), NJ and MD do not issue nonresident permits by unofficial policy (NJ and MD have an application process but none are ever granted).
In addition to liberating DC, this decision ALSO ruled that refusal by DC to grant nonresident permits was a violation of a fundamental right to travel.
Although it was a District Court and the decision only pertains to DC, if that ruling were upheld by a higher court it would force NY-NJ-MD to grant nonresident permits on the same grounds.
This would be MUCH better than national reciprocity, because under any national CCW that could pass this Congress and be signed by Obama, the free states (like mine) would have many more restrictions than they do now.
North Carolina and Virginia have shall-issue carry permits. Not too bad, actually. Maryland is the one to watch out for.
BINGO ..... Like interstate highways in Hawaii ....... Good point Daffy !!!
