Yesterday in a 2 to 1 decision the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia struck down the Washington D.C. handgun ban as UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
For the first time in 30 years honest citizens in the District of Columbia can legally own a handgun and keep it in their home. Criminals never paid any attention to the handgun ban because, well let's face it, THEY"RE CRIMINALS!!!!
Of course the Mayor and the circling moonbats of gun control are vowing to fight the ruling. Squandering thousands, if not millions, of tax payer dollars that would be better used to fight crime than to limit the freedoms of honest law abiding citizens.
1. The first time a Federal Appeals Court struck down a law based on 2nd Amendment grounds.
2. The Majority stated that the 2nd Amendment "Right to Keep and Bear Arms" is an individual right, not a collective right of militias.
3. The moonbat in the minority claimed that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the other Amendments "didn't apply to the District of Columbia, because it is not a state"... Conclusively stating that the citizens of Washington D.C. are not citizens of the United States. Having spent several years there, I would tend to agree. However, legally I don't think that works... Only Native Americans get "Sovereign Nation" status within the U.S.
Hey, does this mean they're going to open casinos in Washington D.C.?!?
