    I see the hard line gun laws are working out just fine in DC. The only ones that have guns are the criminals.
    Yet another robbery here on the hill, and I see Allen on the news this morning discussing how we need new license plates to restate our “Taxation without Representation” DC tax issue Vs. statehood.
    How about we fix the problem of folks getting robbed, attacked, carjacked instead of worrying about license plates Mayor/Chief/elected officials. How about that?
    Useless

      I agree. Why don’t we address crime, panhandling, litter and mentally ill homeless rosming the neighborhoods before the license plate slogans, which no one cares about. Start by shutting down 7-11 stores which are crime magnets and havens for panhandlers
