Favoritiest Photo of the Week: Son of a Gun

(AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Usually, our Favoritiest Photo of the Week features some sort of entertainment or pop culture connection. Sometimes, however, we come across an AP image that's just too visually striking to resist. This photo of a gun closet looks like something James Bond or The Terminator might have installed in their abodes. Of course, that's not the case. Take aim at the original caption:

Guns line the walls of the firearms reference collection at the Washington Metropolitan Police Department headquarters in Washington on Sept. 28, 2007. Most of the guns, used now for forensic research, were seized during crimes under a 31-year-old law in the nation's capital that bars handgun ownership for nearly everyone except law enforcement. That ban is now in jeopardy. The law was struck down by a federal appeals court this year, and now the District of Columbia is asking the Supreme Court to weigh in. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)
