DC's Licensed Gun Dealer Could Set Up At Police HQ

WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The office of Mayor Vincent Gray says DC's only licensed gun dealer is considering setting up shop at the police headquarters.

Charles Sykes lost the lease to his offices in Anacostia in late April.  Since then, District residents have been unable to legally purchase handguns and bring them home. Federal law prohibits residents from buying handguns in other states and bringing them into the District. Three residents have sued over that law, saying it violates their Second Amendment rights.

With Sykes as the only licensed gun dealer and being without a location, no one can register a handgun in the District and that puts the city in violation of the 2008 Supreme Court decision that overturned DC's ban on guns.

Cheap Beer Adds Salt To Jayson Werth's Wounded Batting Average

All season long, Washington National fans have been haunted by the lack of production from the team's big money free agent Jayson Werth.

Well, now they'll actually get rewarded for his failures.

On Sunday, July 24, during the Nats 4 p.m. match-up against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Duffy's Irish Pub, located at 2106 Vermont Avenue in Northwest, will be selling 16-ounce Pabst Blue Ribbon, Budweiser, and Miller High Life beers for whatever Werth's batting average is at the time of the game.

 

For example, if Werth is batting .220, the price of the beers will be $2.20 a pop.  Fans must wear Nationals gear to be eligible for the deal.

 

Werth, who is currently batting an anemic .216, was signed this off-season to a 7-year, $126 million contract.
