From the Washington Post
"A federal appeals court in Washington today refused to reconsider a ruling that struck down a restrictive D.C. ban on gun ownership, setting the stage for a potential constitutional battle over the Second Amendment in the Supreme Court.
D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty, holding an afternoon press conference after the court's decision was made public, said he was disappointed in the ruling and that the city will review its options before deciding what to do next. Fenty has vowed that the city would fight to defend the D.C. law because the restriction on owning handguns in the city was critical to stemming gun-related violence and crime"
The judges who supported re-hearing the case are Bill Clinton appointees,
Merrick Garland, Judith Rogers and David Tatel and George HW Bush appointee A. Raymond Randolph. One of the dissenting judges, Karen Henderson (GHWB appointee), opposed re-hearing the case along with Reagan appointees David Sentelle, Doug Ginsburg, and George W Bush appointees Janice Rogers Brown, Brett Kavanaugh, and Thomas Griffith.
The judicial appointees are the number one reason why I do not regret by vote for Bush. In fact, it was the reason why I voted for him, despite many policy differences regarding his stance on the size of government. The judiciary is the number one issue with me, regarding 2008.
