What’s With All the Gun-totting Lately

smoking_gunYesterday, at the Starbucks at 16th and U, an employee accidentally shot himself in the leg when his concealed handgun went off. Excuse me?

Police officers also found a handgun on Monday near 14th and U, less than two blocks away from yesterdays incident, and earlier on the same day found a gun during a traffic stop in the 700 block of 8th Street, NW.

What’s going on? Is there something in the water? It seems poignant to me that several concealed and unlicensed handguns have turned up just as Congress is attempting to give D.C. a vote in the House with an amendment stripping away nearly all of the City’s gun legislation.

I don’t know what the answer will ultimately be, but to me, Congress needs to stop meddling in City affairs. They aren’t involved in the day-to-day workings of the City, and have no clue what really goes on here. We shouldn’t have to make a deal with the Devil to have our voices heard on the Hill.
