The Washington Post Ignores Right to Bear Arms

In an article about shall issue carry permits in Washington, D.C., the authors, Peter Hermann and Peter Jamison, ignore half of the rights contained in the Second Amendment. It is rather odd, considering it is the main topic of their article.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit struck down the "may issue" law in D.C. specifically. Here is an excerpt from Wrenn that shows how strong the opinion is. From Wrenn v. D.C.:

Our first question is whether the Amendment's "core" extends to publicly carrying guns for self-defense. The District argues that it does not, citing Heller I's observation that "the need for defense of self, family, and property is most acute" in the home. Id. at 628. But the fact that the need for self-defense is most pressing in the home doesn't mean that self-defense at home is the only right at the Amendment's core.....   .......

To ignore the right to bear arms is hardly a case of accidental semantics - it is choosing to ignore part of the Second Amendment's prime content, which is followed by "shall not be infringed". All too often we continue to see interpretation of the 2A being either skewed or simply 'massaged' to suit an anti-gun stance.
