Apparently, Miracles Do Happen

Apparently Washington D.C. residents are having firearms rights restored to them. I never, never thought I would actually see this happen. This popped up on MSN when I got home from work. I'm ecstatic for these people, as it's been decades since honest citizens have been able to legally protect themselves. I expect there will be a wave of purchases, along with surge of "blood in the streets" editorials in their local media. Note the quote in the article:

Washington Mayor Adrian Fenty said the ruling could put more guns in the hands of young people. "I am personally deeply disappointed and quite frankly outraged by today's decision," he said. "Today's decision flies in the face of laws that have helped decrease gun violence in the District of Columbia."

If this doesn't demonstrate someone who's living in an alternative reality, nothing does.

They'll just find some way to come up with an exorbitant registration fee and a ridiculous amount for a license (renewable every year and re-training class required). Never underestimate the ability of fools to screw things up.
