    Opening Question - What is the crime and murder rate in Wash D.C.?


    Excerpt from the editorial:

    The District grabbed the guns belonging to 1st Lt. Augustine Kim and won’t give them back........

    Lt. Kim wanted to bring his weapons back to his home in Charleston. On the way, he stopped at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Northwest Washington for a doctor’s appointment. That’s when his troubles started.

    Lt. Kim became lost in the city and was pulled over. The cops asked Lt. Kim if they could search his vehicle.

    .........stopped at Walter Reed, that makes you in violation of the registration laws.’ ” It is illegal to possess a firearm anywhere in the District other than the home. He was handcuffed and brought back to police headquarters, and his guns were confiscated as evidence.

    In June, the U.S. attorney’s office had certified Mr. Kim’s $10,000 worth of guns were no longer needed for evidence, but the city wouldn’t release them. The District also ignored Mr. Gardiner’s letter from December asking for their return. “This is legalized theft,” said Mr. Gardiner. “The charges were dropped, and they don’t give you your property back?”

    Read the rest and the other background in the article at: EDITORIAL: D.C. grabs guns from soldier - Washington Times

    Emily Miller of The Washington Times has been writing articles about Washington DC guns laws and the right to have one and transport it since October 2011.

    All her articles can be accessed at:

    Maybe he should have exercised his 4th amendment rights and denied permission to search the vehicle.

    Good thing he wasn't caught bringing/leaving his firearms with his parents in Jersey.
    He'd not only have lost his guns, he'd have been in prison.
    NJ, DC, NY, MA, MD...are extremely risky places to be transporting firearms.

    Clipped from VCDL email:

    Let's help Lieutenant Kim by flooding the D.C. MPD with emails, politely, but firmly, demanding that Lt. Kim get back all of his guns and property forthwith!

    Send your email to Gwendolyn Crump with the DC Metropolitan Police Department at:

    gwendolyn.crump@dc.gov

    Suggested subject: Return Lt. Kim's firearms immediately!

    Suggested text:

    Lt. Augustine Kim's charges have been dismissed and there is no longer any excuse for the MPD to deprive Lt. Kim of his lawful property. I am outraged that while he has served his country proudly and has paid a high price health-wise while doing so, DC's way of repaying him is to violate his Second Amendment rights and treat him like a low-life criminal! Refusing to return his lawful property is what I expect from a gang-banger, not a professional police department in our nation's Capital.

    This is the United States, not North Korea. Return Lt. Kim's firearms and any other property immediately.

    Sincerely,

    I will write my own letter. The 'sample' is not written very professionally in my opinion. Organizations, like people, do not respond well to being compared to a gang banger. Same as the last statement where is is a veiled attempt at comparing the police dept to the harsh regime in N. Korea. A letter stating the facts and the amount of support will do more to help this Lt than a slightly inflammatory letter.

    Well, comparing DC MPD knuckle-draggers to the harsh regime in NK is a slight on NK.

    Letter sent.

    What an embarrassment these idiots are to our nation.

    If firearms frighten them so much, I wish they would just move to a country like China, Australia, the UK, or even Mexico, or S. America.

    Doesn't matter. If you want to help him getting his stuff back you write an intelligent and aggressive letter. Name calling and poor comparisons don't accomplish anything and sometimes gives resolve to the people you are trying to influence.
