House votes against part of DC gun ban
The House just passed a restriction on enforcement (not a true repeal) of part of the DC gun ban. IF the WashPo report is correct, it would forbid use of appropriated funds to enforce the requirement that firearms (in this case mostly registered rifles and shotguns, since new registrations of handguns have been forbidden for decades) be kept disassembled or trigger locked while in the home.
I suspect this is more symbolic than anything else. (1) I rather doubt that section of the law is enforced or in most cases enforcable. Back in the 80s I remember Mayor Marion Barry being asked about it during a congressional hearing and essentially responding that, well, there are sections of the law that nobody obeys. (2) While a federal agency has nothing but appropriated funds, so forbidding it to use them for a purpose means there is no way to carry out that purpose, DC has tax and other income. Of course, the bill might be drafted to get around that, i.e., to prohibit use of any funds for that purpose.
