DC to begin fingerprinting, taking mug shots of all LEGAL gun owners
Quote:The 1,800 or so criminals who have killed, robbed or assaulted innocent people with guns in the District of Columbia so far this year were hauled into the police station to be fingerprinted, photographed and to undergo a criminal-background check.

Now, legal gun owners who have committed no crime are getting the exact same treatment.

That is neither constitutional, nor fair.

The latest gun-control scheme that starts on Jan. 1 will force every legal firearm owner in the nation’s capital to go in person to police headquarters to renew their registration certificates.

The Metropolitan Police Department filed proposed rules last week to enact this absurd law, and citizens have until Dec. 15 to comment on the regulations.

To avoid becoming a felon, anyone with a gun registered before 2011 will have to go to police headquarters to be fingerprinted, photographed, provide proof of address, pay a fee and confirm they may still legally possess the firearm.

The Firearms Registration Section will then create a new registration certificate — now in the form of an ID card — for each gun.

It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
What can I say that hasn't already been said about the sad state of DC as our nation's leadership? We are headed toward a change, just hard to say what that will be. I hope it is a revolution, though I fear it will be a "transformation".
The law? The law is a human institution...
If you're a criminal with a gun you won't be showing up to do this. If you're a law abiding citizen with no criminal record you have to jump through hoops and then some. I would love to hear the D.C. police's explanation for the purpose of this. Why can't they just let the law abiding gun owners be?

Aren't they pretty much doing this in PA with the LTCF?

No fingerprinting required here, and the LTCF isn't tied to a registration process.
