A Washington, D.C., federal judge ruled that the D.C. firearm ordinances enacted after the Supreme Court's D.C. v. Heller decision in 2008 "permissibly regulate the exercise of the core Second Amendment right to use firearms for the purpose of self-defense in the home." He dismissed a case brought by Dick Heller, the same plaintiff who challenged the previous ordinance at the Supreme Court. Gun control advocates applauded the ruling as proof that Heller did not sweep away all forms of firearm regulation.
