In my, mostly uneducated, legal opinion, DC is one of the best places to attack these laws. The incorporation issue is not a factor and the local laws are so restrictive, it is easier to show how stupid they are. Granted, there are a LOT of other factors, but those two make the idea more appealing.

Anybody have any other suggestions for our friend from D.C.? I have some friends in California who are facing the same dilemma.

My advice is to get in touch with Robert Levy at the Cato Institute and Alan Gura, who argued the Heller Case before the Supreme Court. You could be the next Dick Heller and help advance gun rights for all of us. Or, on the other hand, they might tell you that this isn't a good case. Either way, I would seriously consider talking to them.

Move to Texas. Don't know if they still are, but a while back Dallas was hiring LEO's like crazy and paying enough people from all over Texas and Shreveport, LA were moving there. I understand that sometimes you might not be able to just pack up and leave, but that's what I would do.

Excellent idea, but might turn you into a bit of a pariah at the department. Sounds like you would make a good subject.

Sounds like a good time to report a "lost" firearm. Maybe it could be "found" at a latter date.

First off, gun control laws are like boiling a frog.

If you throw a frog in a pot of boiling water, the frog will freak. Yet if you put the frog in cold water, and turn up the heat a bit at a time, the frog will accept his fate and not say a word.

Folks, we are the frog, its out fault for letting them turn up the heat.

You can live with it or Freak as the frog in boiling water, its up to us.

Lots of heavy breathing and legal advice.

I say the get the Mini 14 (which nowadays are much improved), or any of the long list of effective semi-auto rifles that you can legally own:

SU16
SKS
Mini30
Saiga
Garand
M1A
M1 carbine
Hakim
Mas49
etc.
