D.C. gun laws haven't improved much. The home defense weapons must have a trigger lock, or be disassembled, they must not fall into the D.C. definition of a semi-automatic weapon, and the home owner is prohibited from using it, even for self defense, unless the application is approved. Even then, the approved weapon can be loaded and used only if the home owner reasonably believes that he is in imminent danger from an attacker in the home.
Doesn't sound like much of a victory. Yet. Challenges are being waged, and creeping incrementalism works both ways.
