The mayor derides a Congressional attempts to overturn the gun ban. Frankly, Mayor Anthony Williams says, it's just none of your business. The ban is a core law of the District of Columbia, he says, and it is offensive that some in Congress would seek to overturn the enormously strong consensus of city residents and officials who support the gun ban. The mayor, of course, conveniently overlooks the Federal Constitution's 2nd Amendment and the fact that D.C.'s violent crime rate is still twice what it was when the ban took effect in 1976.
