NO Guns stores in DC but LOOK WHO HAS A LICENSE!!!!
Guns in DC -- no gun stores, but look who has a license
Knoxville, TN KnoxNews blog
27 June 2008
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
They can be reached at:
Violence Policy Center
1730 Rhode Island Avenue, NW
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.

I don't get it. Why would he have license? I'm sure it's some statement, but I'm missing hi message. Anyhow, STRING HIM UP!

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.

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.
