Guns of Washington – The most tantalizing element of the latest gun rights decision in Washington D.C. is the hope that it raises for law-abiding New Yorkers who want to be able to carry a firearm outside of their homes. The decision was issued by a United States district judge, who has blocked the District of Columbia police from enforcing a ban on handguns. The judge who did this, Frederick Scullin Jr., normally sits at Syracuse, New York. He was assigned to this case by the chief justice of America. So the hope is that when he returns to his regular chambers he’ll eventually get a chance to bring some sense to his own state, where by virtue of radically anti-gun authorities the Second Amendment is a dead letter.
