    WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- District residents can start registering their guns today. But at least one very high profile application was already rejected.
    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.
    Besides obtaining paperwork to buy new handguns, residents also can register firearms they've had illegally under a 180-day amnesty period.
    Though residents will be allowed to begin applying for handgun permits, city officials have said the entire process could take weeks or months.




    I guess they just didn't learn the first time.

    Hopefully this is a setup for another lawsuit.

    The way it reads is that He didn't bring his gun when he went for a permit, because his gun is in Maryland, presumably with a relative or friend, so they rejected him. I hope it's a semi auto too. Everybody knew there was going to be more lawsuits, and I don't know of a better way to instigate one. It may not matter tho, Congress might just yank control from the City Council. I sure hope they do, they really need some reform down that way.

    F*ck, these people need to be put in jail. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Blatant disregard for the letter of the law and the constitution should result in criminal charges. At most these people get a slap on the wrist, and even then that's rare. Most of the time best case the laws get repealed and nothing happens to those so grossly abusing them.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken isn't DC still insisting that guns must be disassembled, even though the SC ruling specifically stated that that was completely contrary to the purpose of the second amendment?

    According to the news, the new DC gun law says that guns at home must be either disassembled, trigger locked, or in a safe, and may be used only under immediate threat. That means that DC homeowners must wait until a perpetrator is in their house, ready to jack them up, before they can go for their useless gun. The homeowner has to say, "Wait, Mr. Robber Rapist. Give me a couple of minutes to assemble my gun, then we can continue."

    "Wonder how they are standardizing that."


    Standardized testing - your funny dude! I wonder if the Firearms Technology Branch at the BATFE that tests the legal status of firearms will ever get standardized testing methods..........

    Hahhaha... why shoot them into space when you can have them dig their own graves and shoot them here. In fact, let Heller do it. That or let them go bird hunting with Cheney.

    ...these screwballs should get wallopped with a "Contempt of Supreme Court decision" action....

    "...what part of the 2nd Amendment don't they understand?"
