Agree with you in principle on the bump stocks, but one needs to be wary of the "give them an inch they will take a mile" syndrome.
Also agree about safety in NorVa. Took a bike ride after work and went a little longer than I should, and as I was passing under the 395 bridges on the way back, well after sunset (it was DARK) was thinking how lucky we are in Arlington County to be able to walk or ride at night and not feel threatened. BTW, apt lease ends Nov 19. No more extensions. Coming home.
