Question for you legal experts...
Are firearms completely outlawed in DC? Long guns too?
A co-worker (who lives in DC) asked if it is legal for him to own an AR15 in DC.
Know any internet links with this info?
HAHAHAHA! An AR-15 in DC - Yeah right! All you can own there is a shotgun...
Don't even get caught going through DC with a weapon in your car. While perfectly legal - DC cops are likely to confiscate it. The $$ you spend in getting them back will end up costing you more than the guns (you will win - but it will cost you). The NRA had a warning about this practice several years ago.
I still don't see where one could not purchase an AR15. Just limited to <12 round mags.
It is a moot point? Whereas you "could" buy one, but there are no gun stores in DC and you can't import them, so you "can't" by one?
Or, since you need a license, and the CLEO does not sign off, so you can't get a license, and the result is... no firearm. One of those scams?
I'm still confused.
There is this:
Anyone know any gunshops in DC? I can't find any.
There is also this provision:
Since ARs can be fitted with magazines with capacities greater than 12 (hey so can 10/22s) they would be illegal in DC. The only semi-auto rifle they might be able to purchase would be the Hi-Point 9mm carbine. (edited to add or a Go-Go Gadget's 10 round CA lower).
I've actually shot with a guy that has a Washington DC Pistol Permit!!
It's for an old .38 spl, and only for that gun. If that guns dies.........no more gun for him.
Pretty amazing to even see a permit anymore.
