Washington DC's big moment

How Do I Register a
Firearm in the District?

To register a fiream, residents must report to the
Firearms Registration Section of the Metropolitan Police
Department, located at 300 Indiana Avenue, NW. The application
process may take up to 14 days. The cost for registering
each firearm is $13, plus $35 to process fingerprints.
Applicants must:

Be 21 years of age

Complete a firearms application

Bring proof of residency (e.g., D.C. Driver's License)

Bring two (2) passport-sized front facing photos

Be fingerprinted

Pass a 20-question multiple choice test

Complete a notarized firearms eligibility statement

Important Things to Remember When transporting your firearm, it must be unloaded,
wrapped securely or placed in a gun case on the back seat of your car.

If you are stopped by the police, you must immediately
tell the officer that you are en route to the Firearms
Registration Section to register the firearm.

The gun dealer will not give you the firearm until
you return with the "Firearms Application" stamped
"APPROVED" by the Metropolitan Police Department,
Firearms Registration Section. If you have possession
of the firearm(s), you must IMMEDIATELY bring it
to the Firearms Registration Section, located at 300
Indiana Avenue, NW.

ONLY rifles, shotguns and revolvers may be
registered in the District of Columbia. The following
firearms may not be registered in the District: sawed-off
shotguns, short-barreled rifles, machine guns and semiautomatc
handguns.


(and from the second page)



WHAT TYPES OF FIREARMS CAN I REGISTER?
Shotguns, rifles, and revolvers. However, a shotgun
barrel cannot be less than 20 inches in length,
and a rifle barrel cannot be less than 16 inches
in length and must have a total overall length of
26 inches or more. No weapon can shoot more
than one shot by a single function of the trigger,
or semi-automatically shoot more than 12 shots
without manual reloading or be readily converted
or restored to do so.

As far as pistols go, they're basically limited to revolvers.

I saw that. What a crock of shit. How about shotguns have to have barrels 20" or longer (federal law says they only have to be 18", right?), and you can only register a gun (rifle, shotgun, or revolver) if you're 21 or older? Fuck that crock of shit.

Not to mention no Class III stuff.

It takes an act of God to get a CHL in MD. VA is the lesser of all three evils.

So does that mean a DC resident can have a .40 semi-auto handgun as long as it has a 10 round magazine?

No, because higher capacity magazine are available. Same with a single stack 1911. Sure, the standard mag only holds 8, but because higher cap mags are produced there is the opportunity for anyone/everyone to carry more than the "legal" amount ammunition in the gun.

Nothing wrong with a revolver, I'd love to see some burglar come face to face with my Ruger Redhawk .44 Magnum

Nothing wrong with a revolver, but there's no reason people shouldn't be able to have a semi-automatic.

I'd rather have a shotgun with an 18" barrel, but that's illegal in the District of Communists.

This is true, but there is something very very wrong with restricting law abiding citizens in the United States of America from owning a gun, even if you include these bullshit concessions to try and appease the court system while still keeping your own liberal agenda.
