WTOP reported on Thursday:

The D.C. chief of police said Friday that Walmart could be one of the solutions to the city’s current void for residents who wish to register handguns.

A defacto ban exists for gun registration in the District, after the sole licensed firearms dealer went out of business earlier this year.

A retailer like Walmart filling that void “makes a lot of sense,” the chief said on WTOP’s “Ask the Chief” program with Mark Segraves.

The Friday Question of the Day is a simple one – do you think Walmart is an appropriate place to sell handguns in DC? And whether or not you think they should – at the end of the day – do you think Walmart will sell guns? If it were easier to buy a gun – will you buy one?
