District of Columbia v. Heller (2008): Understanding the Court's Landmark Decisions

Written by Sam Jacobs Subject: American History

On this episode of the Resistance Library Podcast, Sam and David discuss the Supreme Court's landmark decision on District of Columbia v. Heller (2008). The Second Amendment did not fully protect an individual's right to keep arms for self-defense until a policeman challenged the District of Columbia's handgun ban in 2008.

Residents could have an unregistered handgun in their homes, but it had to be unloaded, disassembled or rendered inoperable by a trigger lock.
