That took 11 days longer than I expected

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.

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.
