D.C. stands for Disgusting Crime

I am confused. The city of Washington D.C. today declared a "crime emergency" because violence and malfeasance has gone through the proverbial roof in that blighted city.

Apparently, two separate groups of tourists were held up at gunpoint by robbers on the Captial Mall, and an aspiring political activist, Alan Senitt, was stabbed to death in Georgetown after being held up at gunpoint (becoming D.C.'s 13th homicide this month) and his girlfriend was sexually assaulted while being held at gunpoint. You probably notice my repetitive use of the word "gunpoint". This is where my confusion begins. For the last 30 years, it has been absolutely illegal for a citizen to own a gun in the city of Washington D.C. Our nation's captial city has perhaps the most stringent gun control laws in the nation. Yet, here they are declaring an emergency because of this year's vicious upswing in crime involving the use of guns. Perhaps this could be happening because of the old adage: If guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

Do yourself a favor, and read columnist Ben Shapiro's reasons for why citizens must own and carry firearms.

Good Day to You, Sir
