Court dumps D.C. gun ban

Federal appeals judges' opinion declares 2nd Amendment grants individual right

In a major decision addressing interpretation of the Second Amendment, a federal appeals court today overturned the District of Columbia's handgun ban, declaring the constitutional right to bear arms is not limited to militias as the city had argued.

The majority opinion (here) in the 2-1 decision said activities protected by the Second Amendment "are not limited to militia service, nor is an individual's enjoyment of the right contingent upon his or her continued intermittent enrollment in the militia." ...

I'm Gary, Leta from T.C. said i should check out your blug so I did and want to say very well done. I think like you that Gov. Granholm is doing this State a big disservice, her record speaks for her, nothing good has happened to this state since she took office. I'm a recently retired college professor who understands Technology and Manufacturing. We need new leadership not negitive reaction. Some of my friends in state service can't beleive what she is doing, like releasing prisoners, cutting State Police hours, cutting educational funds and raising taxes, this can not continue if we are going to a State with a future. We need a real leader with some vision not Gov. Gtanholm. Thankyou for letting me get this off my chest...Gary P.
