    Supreme Court Docket siteThe reply petition isnt due until the 5th, and the docket lists the cert petition as the last action, so they havent accepted the case yet.

    Oh, gosh! I had no idea I had so many "uniquely dangerous" guns!

    Goebbels would be so proud of today's leftist extremists.

    Read the MSNBC article more carefully. It never says that the DC case has been accepted yet by the Supreme Court for review. In that respect, everything it says it is true. But given the overall thrust of the article, the impression a casual reader gets is false. Lousy reporting.

    ...in a city with a disproportionate amount of violent crime, in which the only ones with guns are the criminals! :banghead:

    From PBS Newshour

    The irony of that statement is clear to anyone reading THR. Are we the only ones who appreciate it?

    So far it would seem so. Let us hope that the Supreme Court justices recognize the irony too. I believe that they will. If so perhaps they will get one of their clerks to explain it to Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, very slowly of course and spelling out the hard words.

    If Heller wins w/o the SC addressing the issue of the long arms having to be disassembled while in a DC home, DC will likely pass a law making it mandatory that handguns be disassembled or locked up while in the home.

    They do not need to. The disassembled, locked up provision already applies to handguns:

    Then Washington, D.C., must be a very safe place indeed. It's good to see laws that work to benefit the people. The media should be proud to support those laws and, I hope, will take proper credit for what it's doing.

    Perhaps each journalist should take the time to send a card or letter to everyone murdered or assaulted by a criminal in the District and do a little bragging. Everyone would understand.

    If it hasn't been accepted for hearing, what's the point of this thread?
