District of Columbia v. Heller
The Supreme Court does not epically fail! Thank goodness…I was getting tired of having to use that phrase in conjunction with the High Court. They finally learned how to operate in the realm of common sense. What possible reason could there have been for a DC gun ban for 32 years? The Constitution was ratified years before DC was ever built, so any argument that DC should be gun-free because it’s the head of our government, a secular Vatican City if you will, is null and void. The security there is already unimaginably tight. I remember helicopters flying over the Lincoln Monument area through the National Mall that could detect any sort of weapon on the ground below. One more question. How does the Fourteenth Amendment apply? DC is a federal jurisdiction. It will be interesting to see how this fleshes out. My only concern now? Cynthia McKinney, armed.
