Dick Heller: Round Two

In case you hadn't heard, after Dick Heller's application to register his sidearm was rejected by Washington DC officials, he returned the next day.

Reason Online has photos, and more info. Some success: officials at the police department did take his fingerprints, and took possession of his 1911-style semi-automatic handgun to run a ballistics check.

He's waiting to hear whether they accept his application now. Apparently after receiving a public relations black eye not just from their draconian registration program (that isn't much better than the ban that was in place until the Supreme Court said to "knock it off"), but their rejection of Mr. Heller's application.
