Getting rid of the vision test, the live fire training (which was impossible to get), getting rid of the "only allowed to possess ammo in the caliber you have a gun registered in," law...and possibly getting rid of the ballistic testing on each gun...this is a good first step...

I just wish someone would challenge NYC laws...which are much, much worse.

Thanks for posting! That is a HUGE step for DC. I'm happy for the patriotic folks living there who appreciate the 2A.
Now maybe we can all live to see Bloomberg and his ilk go the same way here in the rotten apple...

And all because a blogger/writer named Emily chose to do a simple expose on the extreme and arbitrary difficulties of getting a handgun permit in DC.

Reminds me of the article "Andy, Get Your Gun - difficulties of getting a handgun permit in New York City" - which detailed the difficulties in NYC...The article isn't anywhere to be found though...at least online.
