Uh Oh. Will Emily Miller Get Her Gun?

TWT Senior Opinion Writer Emily Miller is doing the unthinkable. She’s giving up watching ABC’s “The Bachelor” on Monday nights when the series returns.

Don’t be crazy. We’re kidding.

For real though, she’s headed to City Hall today to find the gun permit office. A new series will follow her through all the red tape of legally acquiring a gun in the District. She writes, “My desire for a gun started when I had to face down over a dozen criminals on an empty cul de sac in Washington, D.C., armed only with a Blackberry.”

In a story today she takes readers through the crime that involved a man with bloodshot eyes and a useless dog.

This is a must-read.

Note to Readers: In Sept. 2009, Christian Davenport wrote a similar story for WaPo. An editor asked Davenport to purchase a gun. Some 15 hours and four trips to the Metro Police Dept. later, he got his gun. We’ll see how Miller fares.
