    Federal judge OKs D.C.'s latest set of gun-control laws

    Federal judge OKs D.C.'s latest set of gun-control laws - Yahoo! News

    A federal judge has upheld the new regime of gun laws passed in Washington, D.C., after the US Supreme Court invalidated the city’s handgun ban in a landmark Second Amendment ruling two years ago.

    The plaintiff in the new case was the same man, Dick Heller, who brought the initial challenge to the handgun ban and won the historic 2008 ruling.
    In reaching his decision, Judge Urbina applied an intermediate level of judicial scrutiny. He decided against applying the toughest test, reserved for fundamental rights. He also rejected the city’s suggestion that he apply a highly permissive test.

    The judge upheld a registration regime that gun owners complained was excessive and unduly burdensome. It includes requirements for a background check, fingerprints, and photos; a ballistic identification procedure that will allow the police to trace a spent shell to that particular weapon; and a declaration to police of how the weapon will be used and where it will be kept.
    In upholding the ban on assault weapons, the judge cited the Supreme Court’s 2008 decision. He said the court found a constitutional right to possess only those weapons in “common use” that are typically possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposes.

    The city council concluded that assault weapons are military-style weapons of war, made for offensive military use. The council further found that such weapons are “disproportionately likely to be used by criminals” and do not have any legitimate use for self-defense. Urbina quoted the council as saying that such weapons would increase the danger to law-abiding users and innocent by-standers if kept in the home or used in self-defense situations.
    An asinine law created without regard to facts, supported by a judge oblivious to facts.

    Oblivious to reason as well, if what the article says is true.

    This is overzealous...??

    Hell, if you're going to own a gun, goddamn straight I want the cops to have your photo, fingerprints, and know everything they can.

    If you're not doing anything wrong--then don't sweat it.

    Boo-hoo, I have to fill out paperwork.

    Boo-hoo, I have to explain why I need a gun... That's right Rambo, why do you need a gun?

    Do you support warrantless phone taps?

    I've owned guns since I was 18, to date 0 people have been threatened or harmed by those guns.
    And no I don't think I'm Rambo.

    Federal judge is not the final arbiter in this case, thank God. This will be overturned by the Supremes.

    ?
    So you would not mind submitting finger prints,photo and anything else to the cops exercise other constitutional right(of course the second you need permission then it is no longer right)? If you are not doing anything wrong then do not sweat it.

    Boo-hoo, I have to fill out paperwork.
    Should you have to fill out paper to the government just to chat on online forums, go to church, write a letter, protest on a street corner, and so on?

    SO you support having to explain to the government why you need to write a letter, go to church, attend a political rally and so on?

    Perhaps instead of being called a anti-2nd amendment loon you should just be called a fascist.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    They didn't have telephones, computers,tvs, radios, mass printing presses like the ones today, audio and video players. Perhaps Hazlnut things those things should be severely restricted or required that citizens ask the government permission to use those things.

    Of course, The Constitution is just an antiquated rag.

    I partly agree with the assault ban though, I mean other weapons I can understand, shotguns, pistols and such. Why "assault weapons?"
