Ever since the Supreme Court ruled that the District of Columbia’s handgun ban was unconstitutional, the city has done everything in its power to make actually owning a gun as difficult and expensive as possible. If you need proof, all you have to do is read some of Emily Miller’s stories about what she had to do to legally purchase and possess a gun our nation’s capital. And that legal obstacle course prompted Dick Heller to file a second suit (commonly known as Heller 2) against D.C. arguing that those barriers to ownership constitute an unconstitutional infringement of the right to keep and bear arms. Today, however, the DC District Court has ruled in favor of the District. You can read the court’s opinion here. Next stop, SCOTUS. Probably.
