“Gun ownership goes up, crime goes down…that’s how it works,” explains Washington Times senior editor and recent gun owner Emily Miller.
After being the victim of a home invasion, Miller was determined to take advantage of the 2008 Supreme Court ruling striking down Washington, D.C.’s handgun ban. Miller initially thought the process of purchasing a firearm “would just be a hassle for a couple of weeks,” and decided to blog her experiences at washingtontimes.com. After four months, countless headaches, and hundreds of dollars in fees, Miller is now legally able to own her Sig Sauer P229 9mm, so long as she keeps it in her home.
