26 July 2014, the day freedom arrived for Dick Heller and the people of the District of Columbia:

In light of Heller, McDonald, and their progeny, there is no longer any basis on which this Court can conclude that the District of Columbia’s total ban on the public carrying of ready-to-use handguns outside the home is constitutional under any level of scrutiny. Therefore, the Court finds that the District of Columbia’s complete ban on the carrying of handguns in public is unconstitutional.

Hat tip: Gun Watch.

There is freedom in the nation’s capital, at least until the DC mayor and council can figure a way get the Bill of Rights back in the cage.   Even the nature the DC police to shoot first, and second, citizens still carry at their own risk.
