Fenty Funtime

Mayor of Washington D.C., Adrian M. Fenty, is apparently looking at a career in comedy:

 “We want to say emphatically that the District’s gun-control laws, as have been outlined by many law-enforcement experts, are a critical part of the District’s public safety strategy and have been so for more than 30 years,”

Seriously, that’s really funny.  Can he say that with a straight face?  How many times has D.C. been the murder capital of the United States in that thirty years?   And who are these “many law-enforcement experts”?
