Well what do you know, D.C. 'gun control' ban SHOT DOWN in court:

Quote from SILBERMAN, Senior Circuit Judge:

"Appellants contest the district court's dismissal of their complaint alleging that the District of Columbia's gun control laws violate their Second Amendment rights. The court held that the Second Amendment ("A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed") does not bestow any rights on individuals except, perhaps, when an individual serves in an organized militia such as today's National Guard. We reverse."

Praise God! Now DC residents can enjoy one of their God-given rights.

Isn't it amazing how the Constitution says what it means?

Yes indeed General! And this decision has far more potential consequence. It may very well open the door for FULL restoration of our God-given (and supposedly "inalienable) Natural Right! Kudos to the Second Amendment Foundation, and K.A.B.A. As well as all of the other individuals and organizations that helped bring this about! But, definitely, and more than all PRAISE GOD!
