Dick Heller Defeats D.C. Again

Keith G. Langer Sept. 19, 2022

DC imposed limits on how much ammunition one could carry for self-defense. Again, Dick Heller challenged the infringement; again, Dick Heller prevailed:

Before the case even came to trial, the District of Columbia repealed the offending statute, 24 DCMR § 2343.1, and sought a stay to negotiate a settlement with the Heller Foundation. From the Defendant's Notice of Repeal:

"Defendants provide the attached Notice of Emergency and Proposed Rulemaking by the Metropolitan Police Department, promulgated on September 14, 2022. See Exhibit A ( Notice of Emergency and Proposed Rulemaking). It was effective immediately on signature and will be published in the September 23, 2022 edition of the D.C. Register.

1. The Notice repeals the ammunition limit challenged here, 24 DCMR § 2343.1.

Date: September 14, 2022"

The Court granted a stay until October 17, 2022, by which time the parties are to submit a negotiated settlement.

Now on to NY, CA, MD, MA, and the other states trying desperately to evade the effects of the Bruen decision on their restrictive laws.
