DC mayor still unclear on the concept explained in Heller

Sigh:

The court ruled that a blanket ban on handguns is unconstitutional, but D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty and other Washington officials want to keep in place a prohibition on semiautomatic handguns — those in which a bullet clip is inserted into the gun’s grip.

Such a ban would continue to outlaw 9-mm and other popular pistols that are legal in most other places around the United States. And it would make the classic six-shooter the only legal handgun in the District.

Okay, here’s Scalia’s language from Heller:

It is enough to note, as we have observed, that the American people have considered the handgun to be the quintessential self-defense weapon. There are many reasons that a citizen may prefer a handgun for home defense: It is easier to store in a location that is readily accessible in an emergency; It cannot easily be redirected or wrestled away by an attacker; it is easier to use for those without the upperbody strength to lift and aim a long gun; it can be pointed at a burglar with one hand while the other hand dials the police. Whatever the reason, handguns are the most popular weapon chosen by Americans for self-defense in the home, and a complete prohibition of their use is invalid.

Did you catch the part where Scalia talks about revolvers?

No, you didn’t, because it’s not in there. He says handguns. Semi-automatic, revolver, Rossi, Ruger, Charter, Springfield Armory, Taurus, Colt, Korth, Kimber. Even Glock.

Handguns.

For “whatever the reason”.
