The decline in D.C.s murder rate has more to do with the national trend than Heller, as it is still exceedingly difficult to obtain a firearm permit and to register a firearm in the City. A D.C. journalist documented the 17 steps and the months it took her before she could legally possess a firearm. Notably, DC has only one FFL and all he does is transfers--there are no gunstores in city limits. She had to get her required training out of town, she had to have a mass of paperwork submitted, she had to shop out of town. These regs have been the subject of continuing llitigation, but have been eased recently due to her series of articles.
