Second Amendment Gets A Win In DC

A rare win for the Second Amendment in DC, from WaPo:

A federal appellate panel today struck down parts of [Washington, DC]'s gun law as unconstitutional, ruling that the city cannot bar people from keeping firearms in their homes.

The decision was a victory for six D.C. residents who said they wanted to keep firearms for self-defense. But it could have much broader implications: The case eventually could wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court as a test of the thorny issues surrounding the Second Amendment and the public's right to keep weapons.

How any politician could think it was constitutional to ban people from having guns in their own homes is beyond me, but then again, liberals just pick and choose which parts of the Constitution they think are still relevant.
