DC Gun Ban Plaintiffs Speak

In today's WaPo is as sympathetic an article on the plaintiffs in the DC gun ban case, and their motivations, as we'll see from that paper. Although the authors never really come out and say it, I have a sense that perhaps they whispered to themselves, These people might have a point.

The plaintiffs are normal everyday people. They work, they obey the law, they're tired of criminals running rampant in a city that neither encourages nor allowes them to take the steps they need to defend themselves.

It is one of the most pernicious aspects of gun control, that such laws turn these people into felons, while failing to deter or punish the real felons.
