Gun Control Victory

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A federal judge on Wednesday upheld the District of Columbia's gun control law that prohibits ownership of handguns, rejecting a legal challenge by a group of citizens backed by the National Rifle Association.
"He also ruled that the Second Amendment does not apply to the district because it was intended to protect state citizens, and the district is not a state. " - Court upholds District of Columbia gun law prohibiting handguns - Jan. 15, 2004
