D.C. police stations might deal guns

Buying a gun along with your school supplies and groceries was too good to be true, but how about at a D.C. police station? Tonight the Zoning Commission will consider an emergency measure that would allow firearms to be sold within a "District law enforcement or licensing agency," City Paper reports.
Why the emergency? The only licensed firearm dealer in D.C. lost his lease earlier this year, and in May, the Second Amendment Foundation and gun owner Michelle Lane filed a suit in U.S. District Court alleging that D.C., because it lacked a licensee, was violating Lane's right to bear arms (*sigh*). Councilmember Phil Mendelson recently proposed the District become a licensee itself, but Mayor Vince Gray didn't like that idea.
As you can see, there are no remaining solutions. And really, what safer place to sell guns than inside a police station?
