    It's really not debatable that the District of Columbia is a separate entity than the rest of the states. There is no state government, so all of its laws have to be specifically passed by Congress. That's why Heller, the most recent gun case, was decided separately from other state cases.

    If you want an example of where federal law included a carve-out for DC, look no further than the Bonus March, cited by Scorpion in this very thread.

    You're saying that the attack on the bonus army was legal, because it took place in D.C.?

    I'm saying that the Posse Comitatus Act doesn't apply in DC.

    Is that all you have to prove your point?

    The Constitution grants the President the power, as Commander in Chief, to use the military to protect the United States and its people.
    Taking down terrorists falls under that.
