The New York Times reports:

The District of Columbia Council approved new firearms legislation that will allow residents to begin applying for handgun permits this week. The Council’s unanimous vote comes as officials try to comply with last month’s Supreme Court ruling that struck down the city’s 32-year-old ban on handguns. The emergency legislation will allow handguns to be kept in the home if they are used only for self-defense and carry fewer than 12 rounds of ammunition.

In other words, still no Second Amendment in the District of Criminals.

I heard some Public Official crying about this on the news this morning. I"m betting that D.C. will pass "reasonable' firearms laws.
IMO thats a total cop out...the 2nd Ammendment is about as clear as it can be. I will always believe to my dying day that law abiding citizens should be allowed to own automatic weapons. Period.

weren't they trying to classify any firearm that can accept a 12+round magazine an assault weapon? As far as I am concerned their actions are tyrannical and traitorous.

D.C. has classified any semi auto as a machine gun, if it holds more than 12 rounds. At leaast that was what the old laws seemed to indicate to me.
I dont live there, but that kind of thinking doesnt surprise me. After I have heard some public statements and seen actions by the police cheif there, I understand why that case went all the way to the Supreme Court.

Now, I guess we will see if this leads to further leagle action from perhaps the NRA.

So if they do an assult sylte ban based on ammo capacity, then folks shoudl start buying AKs and 10 round mags and not posses a higher capacity mag.

When they TRY and claim well you can install a 30 or 40 round magazine in that rifle.

You ask HOW, I can't BUY one here THEY are illegal only criminals can do what you are claiming and I'm NOT a criminal.

Worst case you have to own and SKS and load with strippers but hopefully it won't go that way.

I thought it might have shown up here...but DC denied Heller's application today when he tried to register a M 1911.
It's already about 16 pages and climbing on AR Gen Discussion. It was up to four when I read about there this AM. Pretty intense.
"No bottom loading HG's "they = MG's :shock:

How fucking hilarious would it be if, through trying to obstruct this, they end up causing even more lawsuits that end up constitutionally validating everything?

It won't happen, but it would be wonderful even just for the metric fuckton of irony.

Apparently they had prepared a previous law that defined any bottom loading firearm that "could" accept a magazine of more then 12 rounds a Machine Gun. Just for the purpose of circumventing an overturning of their ban. It does not have to HAVE a magazine of more than 12 rounds, it is their contention that any magazine loaded firearm COULD accept one so they are all banned.

They also have proposed to keep the lock and or unloaded section and, of all the audacity they are offering an Amnesty to "register illegal" weapons previously owned. As if they are all still illegal by their own illegal law.

And of course the long laundry list of things they require for registration, and their intent to require locks and unloaded guns in the home continues. It's in their proposed legislation.

It is past time we took back our own Capitol from the Communists I say. Their utter disregard for our Constitution and our individual rights has got to stop.
