Judge upholds limitations on D.C. gun ownership
A federal judge has upheld the limitations on gun ownership that the District of Columbia put in place following the Supreme Court's 2008 decision overturning the city's outright ban on handguns.
Dick Heller, the plaintiff in the landmark Supreme Court case, had challenged the new regulations, claiming the registration procedures, a ban on most semiautomatic weapons and other limitations violate the intent of the high court's decision.
U.S. District Judge Ricardo M. Urbina sided with the city Friday.
