What was the result of the DC DOJ handgun list case - Hanson v DC?
I checked the Wiki, and it wasn't clear. And checked other threads....
Wiki mentioned combining with Heller II (?)

Hanson v District of Columbia Challenge to CA Roster of Handguns in D.C., March 2009

Was the DC list struck down?
What IS Heller II?

IIRC, DC expanded their roster to the point in which they mooted the case.



Gene posted this in another thread.
On the wiki page for Hanson is a link to the WaPo story showing that DC mooted the case by adopting all of the other rosters out there. http://wiki.calgunsfoundation.org/index.php/Hanson_v_District_of_Columbia

As stated above we're just waiting for a ruling on the MSJ in Palmer.

-GeneI don't see the WaPo link, and it would nice to have the wiki edited to show the final resolution.

DC responded by adopting a new roster that includes any handgun accepted as safe by MD, MA or CA. MD is pretty much a rubber-stamp roster for anything not made of cheap pot metal so the issue really just went away (any civilian can petition to have a gun added, if they are willing to provide the gun to the review board for a few weeks via their FFL IIRC).

Heller II is magazine limits and "assault rifles"

Thanks - was kinda wondering if there was precidence for striking CA list - i.e. a resolution of this case.

So, a Federal precidence has been set by rendering the roster moot. But not a law (or ruling) making the whole roster concept illegal.

Not bad.. that'll work either way!

This WaPo story is basically the final chapter in Hanson.

Hmmm. So, if MA or MD changes their roster, does that automatically change things for residents of DC, or do they have to file something or other to get the new weapon(s) on the DC list?

Any gun that gets put on the MD roster is available to DC residents immediately.

The last thing I remember was Gene posting that they had been able to even find a gun not on any of the rosters DC uses. :D

Outstanding! That means that effort need not be brought against the DC counsel (very hostile to freedom) to fix any problems.
