The plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that struck down Washington, D.C.'s 32-year-old handgun ban has filed a new federal suit, alleging the city's new gun regulations violate an individual's right to own a gun for self-defense. The suit claims D.C. is violating the intent of the high court's June 26 decision by prohibiting the ownership of most semiautomatic weapons, requiring an "arbitrary" registration fee, and making it all but impossible for residents to keep a gun at home for immediate self-defense.
