A one-sentence review of Emily Miller’s WaTimes DC-gun-control story
Emily Miller’s “Emily Gets Her Gun” series won’t document the District’s obfuscatory and difficult bureaucracy impeding innocent citizens from getting the guns they have a right to own; instead, I imagine it’ll document heroic government workers stopping an unqualified person from getting a gun she probably doesn’t know how to load, much less use safely.
Bonus sentence: Going into the Gun Registry and saying “I’ve heard of a Glock [from] TV” is like going into the DMV and saying “I’ve heard of a Toyota”: neither entitles you to own the device in question, nor can you fault the DMV employees for being annoyed with your lack of research.
Bonus link: The much, much, much better Washington Post article on the same subject.
Bonus throwing-her-a-bone: At least she’s got some trigger control in those photos…?
