      Should Wal-Mart become D.C.'s go-to place for guns?

      Because of a recent Supreme Court decision allowing gun sales in D.C., the city must now have a registered dealer. But right now, the city's only licensed dealer isn't doing business.

      On Thursday, MPD Chief Cathy Lanier said on WTOP radio that the city must find a dealer soon.

      Yet for residents who are battling to keep crime down in their neighborhood, the thought of a big gun dealer like Wal-Mart moving in isn't welcome.

      "Enough bad things happened as it is," said resident Bob Pearson. "We don't need no more guns."

      Wal-Mart, however, has told WTOP that it won't sell guns at its D.C. stores.
