It must have been, because I'd always thought that pigs would fly before Washington, DC issued a mere citizen a permit to carry a concealed firearm.
Washington DC issues first concealed carry permits.
It sounds like it's still an onerous process, with applicants having to overcome some showing of need and jump through some tight hoops, but it's still a lot better than it was before and the foot is in the door. And with DC now allowing some form of permitting, that removes the last jurisdiction in America that categorically denied everyone that right.
