New DC Gun Law! - September 19, 2008, 11:10 AM

I will do my best to avoid editorializing too much about how ridiculous the first emergency gun legislation was and how ridiculous it is that the only reason DC council recently enacted new emergency gun legislation was that they saw the writing on the wall with the pending federal legislation and second Heller lawsuit.

In a nutshell, semi-automatics with 10 round mags or less are now legal to have in your home in DC and trigger locks are no longer mandatory unless you have reason to believe a child could have access to your gun. Obviously this is oversimplified so go here for more:

there is going to end up being a fight over the 10 round magizines. And i think the SC needs to give its blessing. When reading the majority side, it might not bless it. 10 rounders arent "common," and they were only deemed common under the brady bill. The majority side wrote using words such as "modern" and "common" so that it will always keep pace with technology.

Currently semi auto hang guns come with +10 round mags, in addition to the mag sizes pre brady bill, would make them the most "common" and "modern."

Yes, I think there will be a fight about that as well as the registration process. It will be interesting to see how it goes. I am at least happy that it has gone this far. Temporarily, it might give people a market to sell their post ban mags.

The registration process is ridiculous.

I think all handguns should be illegal unless you were in the military or current or past law enforcement.

Shoutguns and rifles are adequate for Home protection.

I think limiting handguns to military or current or past law enforcement is ridiculous and both my wife and I are former law enforcement.

Ad, so by not allowing handguns you are taking away concealed carry do you agree with this?

Yes. Take that away.

We are not in the times of the Wild west. We do not need to defend from train robbers.

I can name about 32 people that were murdered at VT last year that would have disagreed with you

What about the Amish school that the guy just walked in and killed the kids

I am not saying guns in schools is the best but......

the point is you never know when you will need it, what if you go camping and a rabid animal chases your ass, you gonna hide in a tree or man up?

what if we are riding in West Virginia and someone tries to jack our bikes, take away my right to conceal carry and the criminal can assume I am unarmed and will take more chances

what if I want to go to the shooting range but dont want to carry open because I need to stop by walmart first to get ammo and dont like the looks I get when I open carry

I was armed when I sold my track bike

DC and Detroit (ignoring recent law changes) have the highest gun crime rates in the country, want to bet if Detroit allows carry?

please please please do not ever say that we are not in the wild west any more, I respect your opinion but I get that response a lot from people that are just ignorant to guns and the laws and just regirgitate that answer, no we are not in the wild west but things do happen

Gun Deaths - United States Tops The List

The United States leads the world's richest nations in gun deaths -- murders, suicides, and accidental deaths due to guns - according to a study published April 17, 1998 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the International Journal of Epidemiology.
The U.S. was first at 14.24 gun deaths per 100,000 people. Two other countries in the Americas came next. Brazil was second with 12.95, followed by Mexico with 12.69.
Japan had the lowest rate, at 0.05 gun deaths per 100,000 (1 per 2 million people). The police in Japan actively raid homes of those suspected of having weapons.
The 36 countries in the study were the richest in the World Bank's 1994 World Development Report, having the highest GNP per capita income.
The United States accounted for 45 percent of the 88,649 gun deaths reported in the study, the first comprehensive international scrutiny of gun-related deaths.
The gun-related deaths per 100,000 people in 1994 by country were as follows:
  • U.S.A. 14.24
  • Brazil 12.95
  • Mexico 12.69
  • Estonia 12.26
  • Argentina 8.93
  • Northern Ireland 6.63
  • Finland 6.46
  • Switzerland 5.31
  • France 5.15
  • Canada 4.31
  • Norway 3.82
  • Austria 3.70
  • Portugal 3.20
  • Israel 2.91
  • Belgium 2.90
  • Australia 2.65
  • Slovenia 2.60
  • Italy 2.44
  • New Zealand 2.38
  • Denmark 2.09
  • Sweden 1.92
  • Kuwait 1.84
  • Greece 1.29
  • Germany 1.24
  • Hungary 1.11
  • Ireland 0.97
  • Spain 0.78
  • Netherlands 0.70
  • Scotland 0.54
  • England and Wales 0.41
  • Taiwan 0.37
  • Singapore 0.21
  • Mauritius 0.19
  • Hong Kong 0.14
  • South Korea 0.12
  • Japan 0.05
Health officials believe that guns in the U.S.could become the leading cause of death attributed to injury by the year 2003, surpassing injuries due to motor vehicle crashes.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) termed the study shoddy because it did not examine all causes of violent deaths. ''What this shows is the CDC is after guns," the Associated Press quoted Dr. Paul Blackman from the NRA.
Following are gun safety recommendations of the National Rifle Association which MedicineNet editors suggest those using guns note.
The three fundamental rules of gun safety must always be applied simultaneously when handling or using a gun:
  1. Always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction.
  2. Always keep your finger off the trigger until ready to shoot.
  3. Always keep the gun unloaded until ready to use.
The following gun safety rules should also be observed when using or storing a gun:
  • Know your target and what is beyond.
  • Be sure the gun is safe to operate.
  • Know how to use the gun safely.
  • Use only the correct ammunition for your gun.
  • Wear hearing and eye protection as appropriate.
  • Never use alcohol or drugs before or while shooting.
  • Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons.
  • Be aware that certain types of guns and many shooting activities require additional safety precautions.

The Second Amendment does not say that individuals have the right to own weapons; it says the state can maintain a military. Verbatim, the Second Amendment reads: “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed.” Other legal documents at the time refer to the terms of “bearing Arms” as military service.
