Correcting for population size, Washington DC has 0.8 shootings per year per 100000 which make Wash DC one of the worst for mass shootings, followed by Illinois, Louisiana, Nevada and California. However, help is on the way in Washington DC.

DC Gun Carry Ban Struck Down. “In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional. Accordingly, the Court grants Plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and enjoins Defendants from enforcing the home limitations of D.C. Code § 7-2502.02(a)(4) and enforcing D.C. Code § 22-4504(a) unless and until such time as the District of Columbia adopts a licensing mechanism consistent with constitutional standards enabling people to exercise their Second Amendment right to bear arms.4 Furthermore, this injunction prohibits the District from completely banning the carrying of handguns in public for self-defense by otherwise qualified non-residents based solely on the fact that they are not residents of the District.”

Dr. Rebanes. For years I have given the liberals/emotionally unstable/hysterical/arrogant elitist control freaks the benefit of the moral high ground. They claimed to have owned that territory and the moral high ground was their argument to end all discussions.

Not no more. They have ceded the moral high ground. Looking at the liberal/Marxist mindset, they now clearly own the immoral ground. Just look around. From foreign policy to domestic policy, they have lost any and all moral authority. We must have been crazy to think God haters and institution lovers would create something better than what we have been getting.

Oh well. We walked 20 miles into the woods with them, now we have to walk 20 miles out and without them.

BillT 547pm - agreed Mr Tozer. But were it only a 20 mile walk.

Central planner's outrage: This is what liberals think of the common folk. From Lois Lerner's e-mails released and it has nothing to do with the IRS.....just a central planner's normal e-mail chain. And to think she came over from the Federal Elections Commission, or is that Federal Elections Committee.

In the November chain, Lerner also makes an off-color comment about class.

She describes visiting an “Edwardian English village” full of large houses -- “which have been ruined by letting the hoi paloi live there!” (Hoi polloi is a term for common people.)

“These people have ruined everything with their equality push!” she writes.
