A crackdown on guns is under way in the District. Police are asking residents to submit to voluntary searches in exchange for amnesty under the District’s gun ban.
The program is starting in the Washington Highlands neighborhood of southeast Washington on Monday and will later expand to other neighborhoods.
Officers will go door to door asking residents for permission to search their homes.
I only wish I could say I was the least bit surprised by this, or by the meek compliance with which it will for the most part be met. Looks a lot to me like a desperation strategy to grab all the guns from law-abiding citizens they can before the Supreme Court hands down its DC gun-law decision this summer, honestly.
A Nation Of Cowards, indeed. But I’m curious: anyone out there heard a peep from the usual Lefty grievance-brigades, who have been so shrilly OUTRAGED! about government encroachment on liberty when it dares to listen in on overseas phone calls between terrorists?
