From MPD:

“Members of the Third District recovered 2 hand guns in the 600 block of Morton Street NW this evening. At this time there have not been any arrests.

Removing illegal guns from the streets of Washington DC is a priority for members of the MPD. The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call 202-727-9099.”

    There was also a lot of police activity out last night. They had drug sniffing dogs out sniffing cars and all around the neighborhood. People who don’t live there drive there and hang out all day and night. They smoke and drink on the streets. This has increased dramatically since the decriminalization of marajuana. Something needs to be done….at least they got a couple guns off the streets.

    Want to clean up DC? Make it a law if you get one felony conviction, especially for possessing illegal weapons, you get permanently banned from public housing.

      I’m all for more strigent requirements around receiving tax payer funded housing. I think DC is way too lenient on criminals that live in public housing (as in they let you do whatever you want).
