Only FFL in DC shuts down
Story here. Though I've got to wonder why losing an office lease would result in complete shutdown. An FFL who stocks a modest inventory of handgun samples doesn't have elaborate office needs. I suspect it might be more a matter of the new regulations reducing demand to where it can't support even a single FFL, at DC office rental prices.The ever-prescient Alan Gura mentioned this risk to me over a year ago.
There are actually several FFLs in DC, as I recall, but most are for research (necessary for interstate shipment of firearms) or other non-retail purposes.
