We are the most armed Zipcode in DC

"In the 20016 Zip code, encompassing some of the District's wealthiest enclaves in upper Northwest, 151 firearms have been registered. That is more than 10 percent of the citywide gun total in an area with about 14,000 households, according to U.S. Census data." WashPost

The same article goes on to say that in all of Ward 8 only 140 and that Ward 3 had another 150, or so, guns registered since the Supreme Court struck down DC gun laws banning handguns in 2008. I guess it will be something to consider for the various crime minions when they are casing neighborhoods to ply their crime.  

Knowing this and watching the spike in forced entry into several AUPARK homes makes me wonder if most of the guns are in Spring Valley?   Any thoughts? Please leave a comment.
