"Gingrey amendment #37 today or tomorrow in House will allow military who live or stationed in DC to be exempt from the firearms laws."

In the comments our old friend, Charles E. Nichols,said:

"The NRA & SAF want gun control laws. The both have lawsuits before the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals where they are trying to preserve California's 1967 ban on carrying loaded firearms in public."

The hate goes on.

In other news, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein still support anti-gun legislation...

That's pretty cool. Active Duty military stationed in DC being exempt from all gun laws.

I can see it now, Active Duty guys and gals wandering about with full auto weapons, and nothing anyone can do.

:rolleyes:

Back to reality. I am sure it has to be worded that they are only exempt from some very specific requirements of the D.C. gun laws.

Strange that active military need special rights

The DC metro area encompasses two states (VA, MD) and the District of Columbia, each with different rules and with quite a few military installations spread between the areas. If, for example, USMC military police were going from Quantico to Henderson Hall or Annapolis, depending on which route they took to avoid traffic, could run afoul of DC or MD laws. Doubtful that this is a blanket exemption, and probably only is to do specifically with military duties.

CA has the same type of exemptions in the AWB and other laws to keep the CA DOJ from pulling over and jailing truckloads of Marines that are making their way from Camp Pendleton to 29 Palms with their M16s for training or from Camp Pen to Miramar for deployment. If those exemptions didn't exist and the CA DOJ decided to prosecute and jail US Military service members for doing their job; that wouldn't sit too well. We would potentially have armed conflict between CA and the USMC as I doubt any CO would ever order surrender of weapons to the DOJ. The Marine Corps would easily win that fight.

So yes, active duty military need "special" rights when their job takes them off post due to the stupidity of some civilian laws.

Interesting thought....

Afterwards, as the USMC mop up from the win, have a return to Federal only gun laws in the state.
Time to write a novel.

Just get rid of all anti-2nd laws in DC... Problem solved. No need for special "privileges" that divide and create separate classes of people.

Seeing the miracles that the USMC can pull off with their limited budget resources and the culture of fiscal responsibility and pragmatic leadership, heck CA may be better off under Marine Corps rule. With such a low bar set, Gen. Amos couldn't do worse than Jerry Brown and the CA legislature!

Why limit it to the military? Seems like an opportunity to fix all DC's stupid laws that infringe.

How about we just deep-six all the stupid laws for everyone?
