Heller June 27, 2008

Posted by Sobek in Crime, Law.

How cool would it be to have a last name that is synonymous with gun rights? I imagine Dick Heller, the police officer who successfully challenged the nation’s most restrictive handgun ban, can pretty much drink for free at any NRA meeting he attends for the rest of his life.

I’ve seen scattered comments on the Heller decision here and there, but I want to do more of a summary of what happened and what it means, in layman’s terms.
