A friend of mine once told me, "if there is a stupid law on the books that puts my life in jepordy, then that law is ignored by me"! I tend to agree..if I lived in DC, I know of a law that I would be breaking DAILY!
I've been forced into the District for work on several occasions and if you've ever been near M St. you wouldn't think there is a ban on guns. Hell, you can by a gun easier than crack over near The Milk Bar. I thought this was perfectly legal. (shrugs)
The Washington Post was never really on either side of the 2A when I used to read it.
"Crackheads, though, are not that good about following advice. Perhaps the D.C. Council could pass a law that requires crackheads to wait on police while burglarizing a home. It might be as effective as the handgun ban".
