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.
Ok, WHAT is wrong with this picture? I'll tell you, a pistol, taking a magazine from the bottom, that fires one shot for each time you pull the trigger, is NOT a machine gun!!! What IDIOT wrote that law? I hope, whoever it was, he's now dead. Because if he's not, he should be taken out and shot for aggravated, felony stupidity.
For some odd reason, I see a return to court on this one. And I hope it's soon. DC is NOT in compliance with the SCOTUS decision
