Congress has passed some legislation de-criminalizing the posession of certain types of firearms in Washington DC. I just cannot understand why it has come to the point that we have to enact laws to protect the rights of citizens that are already guaranteed by the Constitution.
Of course DC constantly has the hightest murder rate and crime rate by use of firearm, followed closely by Chicago - two cities with the MOST restrictive firearm ownership laws.
Here is an interesting story from where else, Texas. If this family lived in DC and were all "law abiding", they would have been dead.
To hell with these laws that disarm the populus. The police won't be at your front door 24/7. Be armed, be trained and be ready. I don't care where you live, you just don't know if or when something is going to happen.
