Freshman Andrew Pazdon, a Hatchet columnist, argues that for D.C., getting a Congressional vote and gun rights do go hand in hand.

It has to accept the fact that, until there is a Constitutional amendment, it is subject to the supreme authority of Congress. If the District wants the liberty to have votes in the Congress that it hosts, then it should accept the fact that owning a useable firearm is also a liberty that should not continue to be abridged. “
