DC Residents Unable to Buy Handguns After Sole Dealer Seeks New Office

It’s been three years since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the nation’s toughest gun control law, the one in Washington, D.C. But a de facto ban has taken effect ever since the city’s only firearms dealer stopped registering guns.

Because there are no gun shops in Washington, city residents who wish to legally possess a handgun must purchase them elsewhere and register them with Charles Syke, who charges $125 fee.

But Sykes won’t register any more guns until he finds another office space for his business. In an interview with FoxNews.com, Sykes wouldn’t say why he’s moving or how long it will take him.

A sad event for those who live in the confines of the Nation’s Capital City…

$125 to register a firearm? Seems a little high to me, almost like someone who is ‘price gouging’ the local citizenry… But then I don’t know the expenses that he has to undergo to continue having a business in DC.

Let’s only hope that the SAF is successful in their lawsuit to allow interstate purchase of firearms (specifically handguns), which would remedy BOTH problems for DC residents…
