The Washington city council passed emergency gun legislation on Tuesday requiring residents and visitors to adhere to strict guidelines to carry a concealed weapon in the U.S. capital.
The move came after a federal judge in July overturned the District of Columbia’s ban on carrying handguns outside the home, saying it was unconstitutional. The judge’s order was under a temporary stay, giving the city time to fashion a new law.
“It’s a situation where we don’t really want to do this, but we have to,” Councilman Marion Barry said before the vote.
That’s right, a city whose residents are clinically insane and keep returning a dirtbag like Marion Barry to office is worried about legal gun owners.
One wonders just how many of Barry’s cocaine dealers over the years obtained their firearms legally and adhered to strict guidelines.
