Bob Levy and the real story behind DC gun registration
He has an op-ed In the WashPo on the matter. The Post earlier carried a story to the effect that handgun registration (while, as Levy notes, very low) was much higher as a percent of households in wealthy DC zip codes than in poor areas, with the implication that somehow gun ownership was a privilege of the wealthy who lived in low crime areas. Levy responds that this is not surprising, considering that DC has made registration a process that costs over $800, plus 16 hours of personal effort, and requiring multiple trips during working hours. "More litigation is sure to follow."
