Most DC residents seem pretty happy about the restrictive gun laws in the District, however there have always been those who question the constitutionality of the laws. Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton ruled that the laws can stay in force. That's not a big surprise. However, the rationale was interesting. According to an article in the Washington Post, the Judge believe that precedent shows that the Second Amendment doesn't apply to the District of Columbia, due to its special status--basically, since it is owned by the government, the laws allowing for a militia to overthrow the government don't make sense to him.
