A Federal Judge has ruled that Washington D.C.'s ban on carrying a handgun outside the home is unconstitutional. The District has until October to either appeal the dedision or come up with a licensing system.Officials in D.C are not leaning to appealing the decision as they feel that since the Heller case in 2008, the chances of maintaining a total ban are extremely poor.
Some of you guys are going to complain that the licensing system sucks, they're going to use it to make things hard and/or expensive.... yada, yada, yada.
Well you're right, they will try.
But just like Chicago they'll wind up in court over and over again. And just like in Chicago they will lose over and over again.
Because Heller was a turning point for gun owners in this country. Some of you whining bastards will complain that nothing changed. But some things did change, and they will continue to change. The anti-gun crowd didn't accomplish as much as they did overnight. They kept at it even after defeats, and used their victories as the basis for more legal victories.
Just as the the pro-gun groups have been using Heller for the last 5 years to mount numerous successful court challenges to restrictive gun laws in various locales around the country.
I'm sorry if some of you guys think it's taking too long. My only advice is suck it up, stop nagging and keep supporting those groups and politicians that are doing the work for you. You may not get everything you want in your lifetime on this issue, but instead of crying about what you don't have, just take advantage of, and joy in the wins that are happening.
In short, stop crying like babies and act like grown adults.
