That is Columbia Island. The DC/VA border is the high water mark of the Potomac on the VA side. If you go to Google maps and Google Columbia Island and then zoom it in, you can see the DC/VA demarc running from the inlet just south of Roosevelt Island around the Pentagon Lagoon This puts the entire Island in DC as outlined.

DaveH: Is this something that VCDL would have an interest in pursuing legislation to 'fix'. I guess it needs to be done in the US Congress, not the VA State Legislature (Or maybe both), so maybe it's an issue for the NRA to pick up on. I think maybe even Senator Jim Webb, our gun-toting Democrat senator, might support it.

The alternative would be "Welcome to DC" and "Welcome back to Virginia" sinage in both directions of the GW Parkway covering that 1-mile stretch. Maybe with fine print saying that DC Gun Laws apply.
Also, do you know, has any Virginian ever been charged with a felony under DC Gun Laws for carrying or transporting a firearm on Columbia Island? Hopefully commonsense would prevail in this case and the charges would be dropped or reduced.

Using common sense is not DC's strong suit. Remember Marion Barry? Cocaine addict reelected to Mayor and currently on the DC City Council representing Ward 8. Good thing is if you are arrested you will be taken in front of a Federal magistrate instead of a DC Superior Court judge because NPS property is Federal jurisdiction but DC law applies.. that's certainly in your favor in the case of an arrest.

The signs could be placed in VA so DC would have nothing to say about it. DC will never cede one inch of land to VA. Plus there are also too many Congressional and Pentagon VIP's who keep their boats at the Columbia Island Marina who like things just as they are without pulling VA into it. Congress still controls DC and that's just the way they like it. National Airport only was built and exists today because the Congressman didn't want to drive to Baltimore to fly home.
