DC cabbies want guns

This is a month old, and I don't know how I missed it, but cab drivers in DC want to carry guns for protection:
After the Supreme Court's decision to overturn a ban on handguns, D.C. residents are allowed to keep registered weapons in their place of business. But police and city officials say the workplace must be a "fixed location," making it illegal for taxicab drivers to carry weapons.
How about some common sense legislation to give cabbies their rights back?

New York cabbies are exposed to violent situations everyday. They should be "required" to carry guns, forget about "should"!
