D.C. has pretty much made it very difficult to own a handgun. They have added everything they can do to delay getting a handgun that is probably a gnats hair away from not complying with the Supreme Court Decision. They said in their decision that states can regulate firearm sales. So D.C laws give the appearance of complying with the Supreme Court while making it a drawn out process that is designed to discourage you from having one so they don't wind up back in court.
Have a nice day at the range
