The definition of a machine gun as being any weapon that is designed to shoot more than 12 shots without manual reloading;
The ban on semiautomatic weapons;
The District’s registration requirement for possession of firearms.
Several existing laws would be maintained, including prohibitions on the illegal dealing or manufacturing of firearms, and the current ban on the possession of a sawed-off shotgun, machine gun, or short-barreled rifle. People who are prohibited by federal law from possessing a firearm (like felons) would still be precluded from gun possession, and it would be a crime to provide such a person with a gun or ammunition.
Criminal penalties for possession of unregistered firearms would be eliminated, and existing District policies and requirements regarding gun storage would be repealed. The sale of a firearm to a resident of the District by a licensed dealer in Maryland or Virginia would be considered valid.
Private entities and secure public buildings would be authorized to determine whether firearms will be allowed on their premises, and if so, what limitations on firearms they would impose. Property owners would be empowered to determine for themselves if, and by whom, firearms could be carried on their property.
The District’s Chief of Police would be required to issue a five-year concealed carry license to any qualified person who successfully completes the application process.
