Just when you think government can’t get any more bizarre, along comes a story that makes you wonder if Larry, Moe, and Obama Curly can be far behind. The following above-the-fold headline appeared in Thursday’s Washington Times print version: “D.C.’s fix: Set up a gun shop with cops.” Somebody must have caught the Freudian slip, as the paper’s online version dispensed with the opening pun, “D.C.’s fix,” and left it at “D.C. police sets up gun dealer in its headquarters.”

Whether one is for or against so-called gun control, the situation in high-crime District of Columbia is emblematic of the duplicity that surrounds modern-day law enforcement and our constitutional rights.

Washington, D.C.’s Metropolitan Police Department has come up with a brainstorm to ensure that the Nation’s Capitol does not wind up violating the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark 2008 decision (District of Columbia v. Heller) invalidating D.C.’s gun ban, illegally imposed in 1976 — opening the District’s only gun shop in a police station………………….

Apparently, Larry, Moe, and Curly can decide which laws to ignore and which must be rigorously followed by everyone else — except criminals, of course.

The District of Columbia ranked 22nd of all U.S. cities in 2010-2011 crime statistics, and came in 15th among the most violent cities according to an FBI release on May 27, 2011. Much of the murder rate, when considered separately from other violent crimes, is due to drug dealing. The crack cocaine epidemic in 1991 gave Washington, D.C., the label “murder capital of the U.S.”

A revealing graph covering the years 1960-2006 compares the murder rate relative to the D.C. gun ban in 1976 and the largely ineffective War on Drugs. The caption underneath carries what, in hindsight, is a fascinating mixture of truth and fancy:

You MUST read the rest of this story.
