    It's the first report, and who knows, maybe their "sources" are wrong. Could be a wild ride though!

    I have a friend who works for Dept of Corrections and lives in DC. When I asked her what he thought about the ban, her response was "I thought pretty much everyone who lived in DC was armed anyway. Mostly because they are government agents."

    I would say she is a bit naive and doesn't see the bigger picture here, but thought it was a bit amusing to hear.

    The tourist areas around the main government buildings have more armed people in uniform than anyplace in the country other than military bases.

    Outside of that area, there are very few legally armed individuals, but lots and lots and lot more people with guns... It must be a scary place to live.

    A few years ago, my wife and I were visiting DC and stayed at the Holiday Inn near the Air & Space Museum. Walking distance actually.

    The first night, I walked out of the lobby, spoke briefly to the armed security guards, lit up a cigar and started to take a walk. One of the guards stopped me and asked where I was going. I said I was just going to walk around the block.

    He strongly suggested I stay on the sidewalk in front of the building where they could watch me, or walk toward the museum. He said, he carried a gun and he wouldn't walk around that block!

    Apparently, the street behind the hotel was the border between the tourist area and a very dangerous part of the city.

    Needles to say, I took his advice...

    GO PARKER!!!

    If applying the US Constitution as it was intended is "bad law" then I vote for some bad law mojo.
