I am not sure what type of legislation they can come up with to satisfy the DC governments ban on handguns in public. The ruling is simple and
Laws prevent a person from carrying a firearm into Federal buildings and Court houses.
DC's law was essentially "Yes you have a right to own a firearm but you have no right to carry it outside your residence". The court said no, you
cant do that.
The only thing left is to draft laws, which imo are already n place, prohibiting a person from carrying a firearm into schools, theaters, government
buildings, mall, et etc etc.
Personally I think what we are seeing in DC could possibly shatter the governments view of the people being scared of government instead of government
being scared of the people.
Think about it - DC and those who reside there never really had to worry about gun crimes because of the draconian laws in place. They (government)
could watched what's going on in the states knowing in DC they had tighter control over it.
Now that the possibility of citizens living in DC are able to own and carry, I am sure our elected officials are in a panic.
Of course that's just a guess / observation.
Then there is always the possibility of our Dear Leader Kim wrong Obama using executive action to void the judicial branch. I mean why not, he's
already doing it with the Legislative branch.
Maybe if the government didnt act like a bunch of no talent a** clowns their popularity might just inch up into the double digit realm.
