Gun-Rights Alert: Risky business but it's going to happen sooner or later. Via the Virginia Citizen's Defense League, Members of The Cato Institute have gone to court to challenge the District of Columbia's ban on private gun ownership.
WASHINGTON - Two Cato Institute scholars announced today that they have filed a civil lawsuit in a Washington, D.C. federal court on behalf of six plaintiffs to vindicate the right of D.C. residents to defend themselves in their home. Robert A. Levy, senior fellow in constitutional studies, and Gene Healy, senior editor, joined by two other D.C.-based attorneys, argue in their complaint that "the Second Amendment guarantees individuals a fundamental right to possess a functional, personal firearm, such as a handgun ... within the home." But D.C. officials "enforce a set of laws [that] deprive individuals, including the plaintiffs, of this important right."
