DC Begins Re-Registering Firearms

Law requiring re-registration is being challenged


The District of Columbia is beginning the process or re-registering firearms.

The Washington Times reports the re-registration process went into effect Jan. 1 and that renewal is required for an estimated 30,000 guns registered before 2011. The renewals will be staggered through December 2015 based on the gun owner's birth date.

Police say gun owners will get a notice giving them a three-month window to re-register.
