Let's help VPC
Now that we know, thanks to Matt Carmel's research and tip, that Violence Policy Center has a firearm dealer's license for their DC headquarters, I think we owe it to them to come up with an advertising campaign! Look at their opportunities. A city of 500,000 or so, they've got one of only a dozen licenses to sell guns, and the handgun ban may be struck down. VPC has always staked out the most extreme positions, so if the Supreme Court goes against them, they are ruined economically. Maybe they got the gun dealer's license as a hedge. Win in the Supreme Court, we make money pushing for more gun laws. Lose, and we make money selling handguns!
VPC should be ready with TV, radio, and billboards:

"While we wait for the Supreme Court to free the citizens of DC from their incompetent and corrupt government, now is the time to order your handguns from Josh's Handgun Haven, "It don't mean a thang if it can't go bang!"

Drop on over to 1730 Rhode Island NW and take a look at our inventory! Glocks, 1911s, Berettas!
Earnest money only, all orders contingent on the court's ruling - get in line for something fine!"
[Pretty girl appears] "Violence Policy Center, it's your hometown gun shop."
