    Is this what you are referring??????
    RULING ON DC GUN LAWS -- Appeals court upholds Heller 2 ruling that certain parts of the registration requirement to own a gun for home defense are not allowed. These things have to stop: 1) Written test before owning 2) Limit one gun per month 3) Renew registration every three years 4) Bring gun to police department.
    Progress!
    If it is???? Need more detail....

    Well,,,

    Finally, I have found a story that explains what it is Emily was posting about..

    https://www.nraila.org/articles/2016...ro-gun-victory

    FAQ
    Last year, we reported that a panel for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia held in the long-running follow-up to the original Heller case (known currently as Heller III), that certain provisions of D.C.’s firearm registration scheme violate the Second Amendment. These included D.C.’s handgun rationing rule, its requirement to renew firearm registrations every three years, a required test of “legal knowledge” for registration applicants, and the requirement that registration applicants present their firearms in person at police headquarters. As we noted at the time, however, the District still had options for further review of the decision.
    Today, one of those options has been foreclosed, with the decision that the full appellate court will not rehear the panel’s ruling, leaving the initial ruling fully intact. While this development does not necessarily mean the legal wrangling in the case is over, it does reinforce a significant pro-gun victory the courts.

    The court upheld the District Court ruling that DC's one gun a month rule and a knowledge test on DC gun laws was unconstitutional. DC's only recourse is to ask SCOTUS for CERT.

    DC AG said they are thinking about next steps.

    Thanks goodness I don't live in the district, but if I did, I would try to line up some legal support and then, along w neighbors, own weapons to defend myself & family - time for conscientious objectors to claim 2A rights.

    I'm just a simple sort of person.

    Washington, D.C. " Home Rulers " seems to be paddling against the tide on this one.

    I doubt that they will take my advice but .... Why don't they simply recognize handgun carry permits issued by the 50 states....?

    It's not as if Washington, D.C. was a " Super State "..or something.

    Recognize state handgun permits...and then.. if need be... address violations of existing criminal laws.

    Way too much commotion over this.

    The government in DC feels they are different than everyone else.

    They suffer from the "we're special" so other states rules won't work here syndrome.

    too bad the homicide rate doesn't reflect that.

    they will only change when forced to by a court.
