So in D.C you can't carry a handgun, but you can possess one inside of a police station?:rofl:

That's funny. It's like the police gun shop across from city hall in NYC. Can't even go in unless your LEO.

It's disgusting that these corrupt politicians are colluding to bypass the Supreme Court and have, in effect, negated the Supreme Court's decision. It seems that they will do anything to deprive the citizens of D.C. of a means to defend themselves. What's ironic is that the idiotic gun-control legislation is the reason crime has been allowed to thrive. Denying D.C. citizens their 2nd amendment rights has allowed crime to get out of control, which increases the need for citizens to have firearms.

But in some ways the tide has turned, and municipalities like DC and Chicago have to justify spending millions of dollars in tax money defending themselves against lawsuits intended to force them to comply with the US Constitution.

Remember to vote in 2012, and take as many like-minded voters to the polls with you on election day. That's when our opinions really count, in contrast to all the other days when we vent our frustrations over the politicians and policies we've put in office. These anti-rights municipalities are holding the line because they know they've got anti-rights allies in the White House and DOJ, and they're hoping to retain those allies in office after next year's elections.

Did anybody else think this was odd:
"The problem is the D.C. gun market is small," said D.C. City Councilman Phil Mendelson. "Mr. Sykes was only processing six-to-10 handguns a month."
* * *
"If anything, the prospects look to be easier for anyone who wants to acquire a handgun for self protection in their home. Everything will be in the same building, and that will relieve some of the pressure of the backlog dating back to April."

Really? Note that the only handguns to be "registered" are the ones sold by Sykes - 6 to 10 a month - but they somehow have a 3 month registration backlog?:upeyes:

Pretty obvious "FU" to the people and the supreme court, if you ask me.

I haven't checked their status but the NRA used to maintain an ffl at their location in DC. I wonder if they still have it because they could have helped out a bit. They used to have it for giving away guns etc.

"People are constitutionally allowed to buy and sell guns; there should be nothing to stop them," Gura said. "The city council has made it virtually impossible to open a gun store with ridiculous zoning laws."

Pretty sure that was moved when HQ moved to VA. They only have a small lobbying office in DC now.
