Robert A. Levy evaluates District of Columbia v. Heller.

On June 26, 2008, the Supreme Court rediscovered the Second Amendment. More than five years after six Washington, D.C. residents challenged the city¹s 32‐​year‐​old ban on all functional firearms in the home, the Court held in District of Columbia v. Heller that the law is unconstitutional. Cato Institute Senior Fellow Robert A. Levy comments on the ruling and what was notable about the opinion authored by Justice Antonin Scalia.
