DC Handgun Ban
by

D.C. appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court today the ruling of the D.C. Circuit Court striking down the District’s handgun ban. Chances are the Supreme Court will take the case. It’s a measure of how far we’ve come that Laurence Tribe agrees there is a Second Amendment right for individuals to own a handgun. This seems the worst possible case for handgun restriction proponents — a flat out ban denying under siege District residents the right to defend themselves in their own homes. Also, not a good case for Democrats to have floating around during the 2008 presidential cycle. (Bill Clinton for one thinks gun rights lost Al Gore a number of states in 2000.) A bit of background and analysis is here.
