Putting the National Guard on traffic control duty frees up the regular police to go after the nutters who you just know are going to bring their tacticool AR-15s to protect their freedumbs.

I shouldn't crosa-post, but how can DC have their own national guard troops?

Also, it's the 21st century.  Why does any country have colonies any more?  Call them "territories" all you want, but they're colonies.  This is shameful and racist.  Make 'em states, or let them go be their own countries.

Downside, of course = The president of the United States is the commander-in-chief for the District of Columbia National Guard. (As he is for all military, right?) Command is exercised through the secretary of defense and the commanding general, Joint Force Headquarters (JFHQ), District of Columbia National Guard.

And:
there is no chain of authority from the District of Columbia to the D.C. National Guard.

DC really needs to be a state.  It's basically a US territory located within the contiguous US.  And the way it's structured is also pretty racist.

Planning to attend the Million MAGA march? Make sure to wear your red hat and carry your AR, so people know you mean business, just like all the other protests they show up mask-less too.

Oh yeah, and show up maskless with a big smile, so you can be identified later.

A lot of them have very large contingents that are happy/apathetic about their current status.

Yes, but the DC PD was actually formed by Congress, so they're less likely to allow Congress to be shot, as they'll all be out of jobs if they fail to respond. The NG is a good call, though. With 3800 or so officers, DCPD could use some backup.
