http://www.scotusblog.com/movabletype/a ... s_gun.html Can you BELIEVE that having a shotgun or rifle with a lock on it, or have it disassembled is a storage or safety issue? THAT is one of the ridiculous claims of D.C. in their response to lifting the ban in place while D.C. goes to SCOTUS! I think the appeals court thought D.C. was really going to appeal the constitutionality issue and they side-stepped it because they knew it was UNconstitutional in the first place. I sincerely hope SCOTUS steps up to the plate. Politically, if you will excuse the pun, this is an explosive issue.
