    DC Police Dept 'Loses' Gun Owners’ Fingerprints, Forces Them to Pay Fee to Re-Registe

    Fox 5’s Emily Miller, a proud gun owner herself, led an investigation into why these law-abiding gun owners were being dragged back to the police station. They were already fingerprinted when they first registered their guns, so why do they have to do it again? The answer is infuriating:
    “According to City Council Chairman Phil Mendelson, the police department lost the fingerprints.”

    I am responsible for my writing, not your understanding of it.

    We are all law abiding ... a law is something that cannot be broken, even if one wanted to.

    So even mass murderers are not law breakers ...

    The word "law" has different meanings to different people.

    Laws are scientific in nature...not man-made statues or codes or ordinances.

    Who would go back and be re-fingerprinted? Force majure ... not their fault.

    IMO they have no obligation to go back and be re-fingerprinted.

    And registration ? Unconstitutional to begin with.

    Pass all the laws they want ... they are not "laws" at all.

    Seems like most folks in DC agree ... few have responded. Good for them.

    No right is held more sacred, or is more carefully guarded, by the common law than the right of every individual to the possession and control of his own person, free from all restraint or interference of others, unless by clear and unquestionable authority of law. Union Pacific Rail Co. vs Botsford as quoted in Terry v Ohio.

    You would chop your fingers off before giving (or right after) your fingerprints?

    I like that style...give the fingerprints and then cut each finger off right in front of them .... sweet

    Criminals are fingerprinted for free.

    Law abiding citizens are charged $35 to be fingerprinted, and because the cops screwed up.
