The last sentence quoted here doesn't make much sense to me but...who knows.
WASHINGTON - The District gun ban has been overturned by the U.S.
Court of Appeals.
On Friday, the court stated that prohibiting a person from keeping a
firearm is unconstitutional. Judges cited the Second Amendment, which
states, "...a well regulated militia, being necessary to the security
of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall
not be infringed."
While the court overturned the ban, D.C.'s strict gun laws remain in effect.
