A legal challenge has been officially filed today that challenges the District’s ban on self-loading pistols and requirement that weapons be stored unloaded or trigger locked. The petitioners are Mr Heller himself as well as two others. WaPo quotes AG Nickels as saying “This is going to be a long fight.” Sadly he lacks the integrity to admit “and that’s highly deliberate on our part.”
Next time you hear about the city having trouble coming up with the money for something, you can think of this malarkey.

I, for one, hope that AG Nickels and Mayor Fenty try every means at its disposal to slow and reduce the ownership of all guns in the District – legal or otherwise.
Well, at least you’re cool with them wasting everyone’s tax dollars…
I’m sympathetic to the desires of the majority of the city’s residents, but I’d find this deliberate and expensive fight-picking a lot easier to swallow if they could manage to get other less contentious things working. But they can’t even manage to consistently pay the kids in the youth employment program or pick a lottery company.
