CPRC in Fox News:D.C. must let ex prison guards pack heat, federal court rules
Dr. John Lott was quoted by Fox News about the new DC Circuit Court Decision on whether DC has to follow the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act that allows retired Law Enforcement with at least 10 years experience to carry concealed.
Four former prison guards who were barred from carrying concealed guns despite a 2004 federal law that gave off-duty and retired law enforcement officers the right to pack heat won a landmark court victory on Thursday. . . .
Smith, who retired as a Corrections department firearms instructor, told the The Washington Times in 2014 that he was fired upon by men he suspects were former inmates as he took out the trash outside his home.
They remember you, he said.
The District of Columbias fight to leave former corrections officers unarmed shows how entrenched its opposition to guns is, according to John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center.
This case illustrates how extreme the District of Columbias opposition to concealed carry has been, Lott said. Here you have law enforcement who are offering to protect others for free, and the District has borne large legal costs to stop them from doing it. . . .

They put Las Vegas in the desert, and look what happened there.

That’s the truth. Government is certainly not interested in safety and well being of Americans. The lawless violent borders and reckless chain immigration proves this daily. Those in government are literally importing mass murdering terrorist into our towns and cities.
