The Case for Concealed Carry in Washington D.C.

Over the weekend, Leadership Institute Northeast Regional Field Coordinator Gabby Hoffman had an Op/Ed in the Richmond Times Dispatch making the case for repealing the ban on carrying handguns in Washington D.C.  In the opinion piece, Hoffman wrote about how Virginia's concealed handgun law has made the Commonwealth a safer place, and how crime has dropped at the same time gun sales have increased exponentially in the last six years:
If D.C. adopts gun laws similar to those of Virginia, the nation’s capital will witness a reduction in crime when law-abiding residents are permitted to conceal-carry.
Hoffman spoke with NRANews' Cam Edwards on Monday and talked in more detail about how D.C.'s residents would benefit if the City Council adopted a carry ordinance similar to Virginia.
