Heller makes it legal

Dick Heller, the man who successfully took his fight to keep a handgun in his District of Columbia home all the way to the Supreme Court, registered that gun yesterday.

Just two months after the court stuck down the district’s handgun ban, Heller rode his bicycle a district police station yesterday to register his gun for the first time, according to DCist.com. According to the New York Times, Heller said “Victory!” as he emerged from the police station with his run registration form bearing a stamp of approval.

No word yet on whether the handgun he registered is the commemorative revolver gunmaker Smith & Wesson announced it would present to the named plaintiffs in the case, DC v. Heller.

Heller is currently suing the district again, claiming that its current gun regulations still violate the constitution.
