You Must Be Friggin' Kidding Me!

The District of Columbia has denied Dick Heller's handgun application:

Dick Heller is the man who brought the lawsuit against the District's 32-year-old ban on handguns. He was among the first in line Thursday morning to apply for a handgun permit.

But when he tried to register his semi-automatic weapon, he says he was rejected. He says his gun has seven bullet clip. Heller says the City Council legislation allows weapons with fewer than eleven bullets in the clip. A spokesman for the DC Police says the gun was a bottom-loading weapon, and according to their interpretation, all bottom-loading guns are outlawed because they are grouped with machine guns.

Attention, District bureaucrats, Dick Heller has the right to keep and bear arms. He's always had it, but that right was recently affirmed by the Supreme Court, for crying out loud. He was the named plaintiff in the suit against you. He won. Approve the permit.

This is why gunowners need to keep fighting to restore our Second Amendment rights. Because the gun-grabbers in DC and elsewhere will try to thwart that right through bureaucracy when they failed to block it through legislation.

Hattip: Instapundit, of course.

My husband and I recently purchased guns so we can exercise our right to keep and bear arms. We took a class on gun safety and we go to the range every week to practice. Thank you for supporting our 2nd Amendment Right!
