    Hello,

    I started an online petition demanding that the DC City Council and Mayor Fenty repeal the continuing ban on semi-automatic handguns in DC. If you live in or own a business in DC, please sign on :

    http://www.petitiononline.com/DCsemi/petition.html

    And...pass on to your friends in DC.

    Thanks,

    Amy

    PS. :celebrateI registered the first handgun in DC in 32 years! Until Heller registered his the following day, I had the ONLY legal handgun in DC!! (except those before 1976 and cops)

    Please be sure that you live or own a business in DC before you sign the petition. This city cares little about what it's own citizen's think most of the time so they sure will throw out the petition of others. You must enter a DC Zip Code from where you live or where you do business.

    Although, I really do appreciate everyone's willingness to help out!

    Amy

    Here's a couple short articles about my experience that you might fine interesting.

    Nasty? Clueless? So what else is new ?

    DC will be forced, kicking and screaming, to ultimately bend to the court's will. They can strut around all they like, because the harder they make this, the more pathetic and feckless they will appear when they get spanked. It will be delicious to watch.

    I think it is very cool and good for our rights that the first person to register was someone who would be perceived by the public as a "soccer mom" (according to news reports and no offense intended).

    No offense taken but are you really hearing the news in MO??? Wowwee!

    The Washington Post published that description based on someone at the police department because I never spoke with anyone from the Post. My soccer mom days are over although I was a baseball mom and my son is now a fireman with his dad. I also think that because this city is so stereotyped, the press did not expect a soccer-mom, bleached blond, in jean shorts to have a gun. Most of my "type" are far too sophisticated to touch guns! They all all liberals who want to protect people like me from myself.

    HA HA!!!

    Believe it or not, out here in MO we read the WaPost, NYT, LAT and other such papers if for no other reason than to affirm our decision to not live in any of those areas. Mainly we read them to find out what the people who hate the country we grew up with and love are up to today.

    Now in all fairness on this issue, while I have been following the matter in east coast papers, I found your story here in OCDO, gungirl. I have however, forwarded the links to numerous people and we even talked about it in our office. The ladies were impressed.

    Welcome to OCDO, Gungirl!

    It's nice to know that there are indeed some D.C. residents who do value their freedom, and I am honored to be posting on the same forum as one of them. You go girl!

    I wonder what they would do if you brought in that auto-revolver?
    Guess the company went out of business a couple years to soon.

    Now run to a Va. range and change that balistic ID with a few cartons of ammo.

    Yep! Even as far out in the sticks as West Plains. Heck, we're almost in Arkansas down here but we still heard about you registering your .357 Magnum. And you're also in our prayers that this didn't make you a target for burglars by publicizing that you'll have a "properly secured, unloaded, non-functioning" .357 in your home when you're not there.

    I think the D.C. government is just jealous of the right of honest people to own guns. People like Berry, convicted felons, can't own guns and it makes them envious.

    I heard there is one guy that has a FFL, but his address has changed and he's waiting on BATF to clear everything.
