      x2j785, you are wrong as well. If you read the law
      you posted carefully, you will see that it says "OR a
      trigger lock". And unloaded just means that the round
      is not chambered.

      If you have a shotgun, you can have one of those
      elastic shell holders on the stock, & if you have a
      rifle w/ a clip (under 12 rounds if semi-auto), you
      can have the clip loaded & either in a similar pouch
      our resting in the clip chamber as long as the first
      round isn't chambered. Then just a trigger lock. If
      someone breaks in, either weapon could be armed in 10
      seconds.

      So DC's laws provide enough leeway to make a firearm
      that meets the law's conditions a viable self-defense
      method. Of course, you still are subject to the legal
      requirement that a "reasonable person" would conclude
      their life or the life of people in the house are in
      imminent danger, before you could shoot them.
