Dick Heller Talks About the DC Gun Case
Washington, DC resident Dick Heller was trusted to protect government employees with a firearm but due to a gun ban in the city he was not allowed to protect himself and his family with that same tool. Heller joined with others to fight the ban, in a case that eventually resulted in a ruling by the Supreme Court that affirmed that the Second Amendment, like all other Amendments, are about individual rights. Heller notes that this case was initially about gun rights but eventually grew to be about something larger -- freedom.
