On this day:

Court: Second Amendment means what it says

A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that Washington, D.C.'s gun ban is unconstitutional. The case is Parker vs. D.C., and the court's opinion is here. The Washington Post reports here and here. The AP report is here.

I'm pleased to see that Alabama Attorney General Troy King sided with the plaintiffs in this case, arguing in this amicus brief that the ban is unconstitutional.
