D.C.’s strict gun laws didn’t prevent massacre.

Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton, a non-voting delegate representing the gun-free zone of the District of Columbia, told CNN the Navy Yard shooting was possible because of the Second Amendment.

“There is no indication this was a terrorist event,” she said. “But I hope we all understand that with all these guns loose in the society, it doesn’t take a terrorist to do what was done here today.”

By “loose,” Ms. Holmes Norton undoubtedly meant legal, as stipulated by the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

In D.C., all firearms must be registered with the police and conform to a number of government regulations, including the completion of a firearms training course conducted by a state-certified firearms instructor or a certified military firearms instructor. Firearms must be re-registered every three years.

Simply carrying a handgun, rifle, or shotgun in the District is prohibited, except for a person holding a valid registration to carry a firearm in his home or place of business. It is illegal to carry a loaded or accessible firearm in a vehicle and ammunition cannot be stored in the glove compartment or console. Open and concealed carry are strictly illegal.

So-called assault weapons are banned, as are “large capacity” magazines. It is illegal to sell a gun to a person who is not “of sound mind” or has been adjudicated by government to be an alcoholic.

Defense free zones proliferate. They include schools, universities, day care centers, public swimming pools, youth centers, video arcades, and many other places. Carrying a firearm in a so-called gun free zone results in imprisonment.

In District of Columbia v. Heller, the Supreme Court ruled that the District’s draconian anti-gun laws violate the Second Amendment. Despite this ruling, the city still requires firearm registration, so-called assault weapons remain illegal, and open and concealed carry are criminal offenses.
