D.C. liquor stores could open July 4th

By Washington Post editors

July 4 falls on a Sunday this year. So for those who can't plan ahead the D.C. Council is expected on Tuesday to approve a bill that would allow liquor stores to be open, NBC 4 reports.

The legislation affects only "Class A" liquor stores that sell distilled spirits. Other beer- and wine-only stores are normally open seven days a week.

yes, its a matter of the upmost importance that everyone in the nations capital consume as much alcohol on the day celebrating our independance as possible.

Beer and wine is not enough, nor should anyone be limited to any amount they might otherwise have on hand prior to said holiday.

Nor should anyone be limited to what they can consume at a resteraunt or club.

And everyone knows the people in DC can not be trusted to purchase all their alcohol 24 hours before they intend to drink it.

Who comes up with these regulations, anyway?

No liquor sales on Sunday? Really?

What is this, Saudi freaking Arabia?

Restrictions on liquor sales are antiquated.
