The D.C. police department has released information about how to re-register firearms in the city — two years after the original deadline.

Hoping to establish “a simple, streamlined process” for re-registering firearms in the District, the department has proposed a renewal process “for firearms that … were required to be registered with the Metropolitan Police Department before Jan. 1, 2011.”

“We have worked to meet the requirements of the law while trying to streamline the process as much as possible,” police spokeswoman Gwendolyn Crump said Monday.

About 30,000 firearm owners in the District are up for permit renewal, police said.

Despite the two-year delay in re-registration, gun owners in the District have not been breaking the law.
