Obviously - you have no desire to hold any kind of mature discussion

So, you continue to bury your head in the sand - ignore reality - that is your right.

The rest of the adults will discuss issues

putting a weapon in a vehicle's trunk is not brandishing it in any sense of the word; a basic english class might be able to help you out there.

straw man strategies and blatant lies are what the gun control advocates are counting on in order to take the firearms from law-abiding individuals, while doing nothing to prevent criminals to acquire or keep their own.

Everybody please calm down and start acting like adults. This is the Great Debates forum, not the Argue with random people on the Internet forum. Please try to be on topic.
Consider this an official warning, if you don't drop it infractions will follow.
Yac.

I absolutely do not misunderstand DC law, I pay attention. Nor was what I doing in any sense "brandishing". Your "explanation" of the recently passed regulations for the District falls into the typical fear mongering prevalent here. Meanwhile, the car jackings, muggings and home invasions continue to plague law abiding citizens who are disarmed. You may never have been robbed, etc. while living in the District but you're just a very short Metro ride from it. And unless you live in far NW, you live in one of the crime plagued districts. Nearly everyone I know who lives in DC has to have home security systems, car alarms and other anti-theft devices on their vehicles. Hell of a way to have to live for prestige.

Then you intentionally mistated it's requirements, which is worse. It is no longer a violation of the DC gun law to keep a loaded gun in your home unless there is a minor in the house. If there is a minor in the house the loaded gun must be on your person or locked up.

That's not the interpretation of: Mayor Fenty, Chief Lanier, Council Member Mendelson or the NRA.

Here's a direct quote from the mayor's news release.

The legislation will:

a. Kept in a securely locked box, secured container, or in a location which a reasonable person would believe to be secure; or
b. carried on the person or within such close proximity that a person can readily retrieve and use it.
What part is hard for you to understand?
