It is time to repeal the District`s gun laws. Just consider a few statistics: Five years before the D.C. Council banned nearly all firearms in 1976, the District`s murder rate fell from 37 to 27 per 100,000 people. In the five years after 1976, the murder rate rose to 35 per 100,000 people. Between 1976 and 1991, the D.C. homicide rate rose 200%. The national homicide rate during the same 15-year period rose just 12%.
