Emily is mentioned prominently in this NRA article on DC firearms laws and their current revision.


In D.C., Baby Steps Toward Gun Law Sanity

Posted on March 2, 2012


Washington Times Opinion Page Senior Editor Emily Miller, who chronicled the extreme difficulties of purchasing a firearm in our Nation’s Capital, recently wrote an op-ed piece, in which she notes that D.C. officials have no solution for the city’s crime problem. The article reports that violent crime in the District is up 40 percent in the first two months of the year, including double the number of robberies at gunpoint.

The article also notes that at a recent community meeting on the increased violence--held by D.C. Council member Mary M. Cheh--one resident asked officials why the city makes it so difficult for law-abiding residents to possess guns and refuses to allow them to carry firearms outside of the home.

Gun Control: The premise that a woman found in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is morally superior to allowing that same woman to defend her life with a firearm.
