    Can you fly into DC with a declared firearm. Better yet, can you get out with it??:eek: :eek:

    I hate to go unarmed into the murder capital of the US, but my Sister-in-Law wants to take us to the Smithsonian, National Archives and I don't know what else we can squeeze in. MUST see the Declaration of Independence and U.S. Constitution before Obozo really wipes his arse with them.

    I know if I drove I would be good to go, but the flying thing is messing up my protection. I may have to rely on Divine Providence totally :eek:, nothing against that, I just like having my own means of protection.

    Like when Jesus sent out the 70 and asked them if they had any swords and they said yeah, we got a couple.

    Reagan National and Washington National are the same airport. When I was stationed in Quantico in the mid 70's, I'd drive up to DC every chance I got to visit the Smithsonian usually.

    PS: A piece of advice: Don't rent a car. Take a cab or public transportation to get around. Might cost you a bit more, but it's worth it.

    And while there find time to make it out to the National Fire Arms Museum in Fairfax. It's well worth the trip.
    I understand you can take public transportation to get there but I found a cab worked well.

    Order of importance:
    National Archives - Declaration & Constitution
    Smithsonian - Natural History I think. I want to see Lewis & Clark's artifacts & the taxidermy samples they sent back to Jefferson, Revolutionary & Civil War & George Washington's personal effects.

    I realize that's more than I can get done in 3 days but I'm going to give it a shot.....oops, er a try.:D

    Gotta plug the Marine Corps Museum. :) About 40 miles south of DC just outside the base. They have a great exhibit and a replica of Tun Tavern.

    Got to go see the Korean War Memorial too since my Dad made the Inchon & Wonson landings at the request of USMC 1rst Marine Division shooting a Browning Light .30.

    With checked bags I can take a knife

    I am with gunny. If you tried to bring a weapon into the DC area,especially after this election and if you are from a red state. I will lay odds the Secrect Service will have a nice "chat" with you, take your weapon and, and escort you to the DC, Va border. With a hint to not come back.
    Have no doubt that TSA will notify Secret Service.
