DC gun purchases will remain difficult
You can buy a hat, you can buy a rat, but you still can’t buy a gat in the District, no matter what the Supreme Court says about the gun ban. The Wall Street Journal says DC will try to use zoning and a helpful (for once) dose of NIMBYs to keep people from opening gun stores.
None of the eight wards are interested in a gun store, and the government is happy to oblige them. This will hamper the imports of guns from other states, as guns ordered from out-of-state gun merchants are mailed to other gun stores for customer pick-up instead of directly to the customer.
The government is just being a sore loser. Let the neighborhoods fight if they don’t want gun stores, but forcing gun sales across the state line just takes money out of DC.
