The Washington Post reports that since the 2008 ruling, records show more than 1,400 firearms have been registered with police. Among those, nearly 300 are in the high-income, low-crime Georgetown, Palisades and Chevy Chase areas.
In the neighborhoods east of the Anacostia River - a section of the city where many areas are plagued by poverty and violence - about 240 guns have been registered.
Of the 1,400-plus guns registered, more than 1,000 are handguns, mainly semiautomatics. The rest are rifles and shotguns.
