    Smile D.C.: Heller gets his permit

    Man who filed lawsuit gets D.C. handgun permit | National | Chron.com

    WASHINGTON The man whose lawsuit overturned Washington's handgun ban has successfully registered his revolver, ending a more than 30-year wait to keep the weapon in his home.

    **** Heller walked out of D.C. police headquarters today, clutching a yellow firearms registration certificate stamped "approved." He gave the thumbs-up sign, grinned and said, "Victory!"

    Heller was among the first people to seek a gun permit under new rules adopted after the Supreme Court struck down the city's 32-year-old handgun ban in June. Heller was the plaintiff in that case.

    He won approval to keep a .22-caliber revolver at home after coming to police headquarters in July to be fingerprinted and take a firearms proficiency test. Police approved the weapon after completing a background check.

    Didn't he attempt to register a semi auto earlier, a 1911 if I'm not mistaken. Was that gun confiscated or did he have to keep it outside of D.C., or is he just illegally keeping it?

    Well, it's about time! This makes the three-day background check seem like nothing.

    It's better than what he was able to have before.

    That's true, but D.C. still has America's worst gun laws. Not saying that the Heller case was counterproductive in any way, but D.C. isn't really any closer to being gun owner friendly than it was before the ruling. I'm glad I live here and not there.
