A spokesman for the DC Police says the gun was a bottom-loading weapon, and according to their interpretation, all bottom-loading guns are outlawed because they are grouped with machine guns.
This cannot be explained away by ignorance any more. Which leaves malice. These people would rip the US Constitution in half and wipe their ass with it if they could. I wonder what would happen if one million gun owners showed up in DC, open-carry?
I'd love to see the anti-constitution assholes' exploding heads.
