Quote Of The Day
DC City Council Chairman Vincent Gray, on the District’s new gun legislation:
We’re trying to figure out how close we can get to where we were before.
Judging from the “emergency” law, which continues to ban semiautomatic weapons and requires trigger locks or the firearm to be disassembled at all times (except when used against an intruder), I’d say they’ve gotten pretty close.
This story is just too good, though, and offers a second gem:
Nickles said residents could neither keep their guns loaded in anticipation of a problem nor search for an intruder on their property. The porch is off-limits, he said, as well as the yard and any outbuildings.
Yes. You see, you have to wait until an intruder is next to your bed with his gun drawn on you before you’re allowed to assemble your weapon, load ammunition, and defend yourself. This is how DC is keeping you safe!
