Fox News Reporter Emily Miller is detailing her effort to try to get a concealed carry permit in nation's capital. DC Police Chief Cathy Lanier responds by banning cameras.
WASHINGTON - When I was last at the D.C. police headquarters, they explained to me that I can't apply for a gun carry permit just because I need to defend myself in a city with high crime. I had to prove a “special” danger, according to the new law. So that's what I set out to do.

With the recent changes in Maryland law concerning medical marijuana, see MD Code, Health - General, § 13-3304 et seq., and the push to legalize the use of marijuana in Maryland, a recurring issue is how such marijuana use would affect your Second Amendment rights. The short answer is that it may well act to abrogate those rights by (1) barring a FFL from selling a firearm to such a user and (2), by making such a user a prohibited person under federal law.
