    "More wealthy DC residents registering guns"

    http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...MPLATE=DEFAULT

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Police data shows that since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Washington's handgun ban more than 2 1/2 years ago, hundreds of residents in the District's safest and wealthiest areas have registered handguns - more than those in poor areas with higher crime.
    Not really sure what the point of this piece is. That wealthier people can more easily afford a buy a gun?

    Or that they are just more likely to register them?

    Any gun articles by the Wash Post must be closely scrutinized for some anti-gun message.

    Anti-gun and a nice dose of class warfare...
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Or the fact that DC has made so many hoops to jump through the rich are all that can afford to jump through them.
