Scalia on DC gun ban: Bullet wounds will stop your buffoonery

Supreme Court strikes down Washington’s handgun ban. Sad stuff for DC, but how much gun crime did the gun ban deter, considering that Maryland and Virginia gun stores are only a Metro train away? It was probably more useful for getting charges against people wanted for other stuff, Wire-style.

On the bright side, I guess this means we can all go to more firing ranges.

  2. Those seem like pretty reasonable laws to me, Mike, though I don’t know why we would trust Ann Coulter.

  3. I think you’re right about gun bans not really stopping anyone if they want firearms. And firing ranges are fun!
