It never ceases to amaze me that the residents of the capitol of the greatest nation on the planet are denied the basic right of self defense. D.C. has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country, right up there with NYC, Chicago, and Newark, NJ. Anybody wanna venture a guess as to what those four cities have in common?

It wouldn't be an extremely high murder rate, would it? The idiots who pass these laws never seem to realize that violent criminals do not usually purchase guns legally. I live near D.C., and wouldn't feel safe living there without a gun unless I was protected by the Secret Service. The Democrats have a stranglehold on D.C. politics, so one should expect a general lack of common sense among the city's lawmakers.

"It’s become more dangerous because of non-restrictive gun laws in other jurisdictions, like Virginia and Maryland," just over the border.

Yeah, a person is a heck of a lot more likely to kick in somebody's door if there is a good chance that the person on the other side is armed. /sarc

"Every day I am witnessing someone who’s been shot or murdered on these mean city streets," said Hannah Hawkins, who runs Child of Mine

Hannah Hawkins is a flaming idiot. It's been graphically demonstrated that the gun ban doesn't work and, if anything, it has made D.C. a more dangerous place. The liberals' answer to everything is more of the same. If their policies don't work, they think making more rules and being even more restrictive will somehow work. Just unbelievable!!

Time to repeal this unconstitutional piece of totalitarianism.

It's mostly populated by moronic government parasites.

QED.

When this was being pushed before the election, Frist canned it on the grounds that it's too hot to touch in an election season. Hopefully we won't fall for that lame excuse again. When something needs to be passed, it needs to be passed. If the candidate can't take the heat for it, he needs to get out of the kitchen.

Hannah Hawkins says DC has more gun use because of the lack of gun restrictions in Virginia.

She has a hidden agenda ~ maybe a brother-in-law who's an enforcer for a drug crew?

Or, she's simply one of the stupidest people to ever walk the face of the Earth.

Virginia, with few gun restrictions, has a far lower gun crime rate than DC.
