Double Dah!

Not much has come of the Supreme Court overturning the District of Columbia's strict gun laws. There have been lots of cases but the existing gun control statutes have stood (for example, no guns near school or in Post Offices).

This is my favorite case:

Harvey C. Jackson argued in federal court that he had a constitutional right to carry a gun while selling drugs in a dangerous neighborhood in East St. Louis, Ill. That's right, he claimed a constitutional right to bear arms while committing a felony.

The uproarious laughter you hear in the background is the federal appeals court in Chicago.
