    Guns in DC -- no gun stores, but look who has a license

    So, how does one lawfully get guns into DC? Even after Heller takes
    effect, it's a tough issue due to zoning:

    Washington has no federally licensed gun stores, so nowhere in the
    city can residents buy a handgun legally.

    Not true, really. There is one licensed firearms dealer in the city.
    One Josh Sugarmann of the anti-gun shill group the Violence Policy
    Center.

    They can be reached at:

    Violence Policy Center
    1730 Rhode Island Avenue, NW
    Suite 1014
    Washington, DC 20036

    phone (202) 822 8200

    Ask them what they're charging for transfers. If they say they don't
    do them, remind them that, thanks in part to their kind's lobbying
    efforts, it is typically viewed a violation of federal law to hold an
    FFL and not be in the business of dealing firearms.

    Oh, I love it when irony rears its ugly, and yet, somehow graceful head.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    What a wonderful business opportunity! The only problem is that the Mayor & his ilk will be doing EVERYTHING they can to prevent any dealers from opening up shop in DC.

    Many, many FFL holders operate out of their homes and such in just about every other state. I wonder if it is the same in D.C.?

    Not anymore IRRC. The ATF shut down that one under Clinton. Now you must have a commercial space to have an FFL..... which means that VPC is registered in ATF as a Gun Store.

    I wonder if I should call Bloomberg and have this store checked.

    I know an individual who got a FFL to operate out of his home within the last year. Now out here in the sticks, zoning is a tad different than a City like DC, but for all intents he operating in a residential area.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    ATF will only issue a FFL if you are properly zoned. You can do it out of your home if you are zoned for small business (or whatever it's called in your neighborhood)

    You can still do this as long as it is properly zoned and all the other hoops have been jumped through.

    The real issue here is that the antis pressed BATFE to increase their supervision of FFLs and enforce a requirement that FFL holders actually "do business". You are not supposed to get an FFL just so you can transfer guns to yourself personally. So, at the urging of the antis, BATFE has revoked a lot of licenses of so-called "kitchen table" FFL holders precisely because they did not sell any/enough guns.

    Sugarmann has an FFL so that VPC can have a presence at gun shows and some other places (trade gatherings, I presume) where an FFL is required for entry. Since he obviously sells no guns, this is in violation of BATFE regulations, and this should be yelled from the rooftops until BATFE shuts this schmuck down.

    In the meanwhile, do call him and ask what his transfer fee is.

    (The lack of gun shops due to zoning restrictions in D.C. is a whole 'nother ball of wax still to be dealt with...)

    Would you guess that he buys guns to get the nasty things off the streets? Just wondering.
