    "Amnesty," for unconstitutionally banned weapons?

    As in "you've been bad, but we'll officially forgive you for your error, if you comply."

    Despite the actual error being theirs, that is.

    Utter arrogance.

    That's a good point. Courts has ruled you cannot compel felons to register their weapons, because it violates their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. If it was a felony to possess a handgun in DC, does an amnesty period even enter into it?
