Washington DC Residents Finally Safe

A federal appeals court has struck down Washington DC’s infamous firearm ban. Watch for the violent crime rate to skyrocket…oh, wait.


For Duck Hunting Personal Protection Hell, Just Because

It is notable seeing as how the ruling conflicts with the majority of federal court interpretations of the 2nd Amendment (at least recently). Certainly the more than two decades old DC near ban on firearms has been challenged on constitutional grounds before and been upheld. So this is interesting I suppose.

The court relied on a constitutional interpretation that has been rejected by nine federal appeals courts around the nation. The decision was the first from a federal appeals court to hold a gun-control law unconstitutional on the ground that the Second Amendment protects the rights of individuals, as opposed to a collective right of state militias.
