More Lawsuits Against DC’s Unconstitutional Gun Laws!

The Examiner is reporting that additional lawsuits have been filed against DC’s current registration scheme. There are several plaintiffs in this case, and each of their issues with the current “registration” scheme displays the ridiculousness of the DC laws. According to the Examiner:

“Tracey Ambeau Hanson: Her gun was rejected because it's the wrong color.

“Paul St. Lawrence: His gun was rejected even though it is the same gun owned by Dick Heller for whom the Supreme Court ordered DC to issue a registration certificate less than a year ago.

“Gillian St. Lawrence: Her gun was rejected merely because the manufacturer decided not to pay a fee to California to keep the gun on the California Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale.”

Remember, this is the set of laws that DC House designee Eleanor Holmes-Norton considers to be entirely “reasonable”. Cases like this show the lengths to which opponents of our Second Amendment rights will go to in denying those rights. These laws are not in any way, shape, or form “reasonable”, and must be opposed at every step using every legal tool in our arsenal.

Quite frankly, I’m glad that DC’s House representation is current tied to the elimination of these laws. Until the District respects the Civil Rights of their citizens, it is clear that they have no respect for the supreme law of the land – the U.S. Constitution. When they demonstrate some respect for the Constitution, then the District deserves stronger representation.

Until next time!!!
