DC Gun Ban Unconstitutional

US Court Says Parts of DC Gun Law Unconstitutional By VOA News 10 March 2007
A U.S. appeals court has ruled that parts of a law banning guns in Washington, D.C. are unconstitutional.

Friday's ruling, decided in a two to one vote, struck down a provision that bans residents of the nation's capital from keeping handguns in their homes. The court said the ban violates the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.

The amendment grants "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" and allows for a "well regulated militia."

The court also struck down a section of the law that requires owners of legally registered guns to disassemble them.

Actually, the main, most important part of the ruling is that this court correctly held that the 2nd Amendment is an individual right. The antis are pitching a fit talking about activist judges. They need to research the word hypocrite, they are one.
