Washington DC continues to prevent people from defending themselves. Now they are appealing to the Supreme Court to overturn the Appeals Court ruling. It's hard to predict what the Supreme Court will do, considering previous rulings allowing the Constitution to be violated.

D.C. Appeals to Supreme Court on Gun Law

The District of Columbia on Tuesday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a ruling that struck down the city's 30-year-old ban on private handgun ownership.

If the Supreme Court takes the case, it could lead to the high court's first direct ruling on the Second Amendment since 1939.

Mayor Adrian Fenty announced the appeal on the steps of police headquarters.

"The bottom line is we do not need more guns in this city," Fenty said.

-------------------

The law bars residents from keeping handguns in their homes and prohibits the carrying of a gun without a license. Registered firearms such as rifles and shotguns must be kept unloaded and disassembled or fitted with trigger locks.

"The bottom line is we do not need more guns in this city," Fenty said.

The fuzzy thinking of politicians never ceases to amaze me, including the audacity of telling people what they do and don't "need".
