Heller's handgun application rejected...

It looks like Heller tried to register his 1911 and was denied.  That takes some serious stupidity on the part of the DC officials.  DC claims that the 1911 is a "machine gun" because it is magazine-fed and can accept magazines holding more than 12 rounds -- even though the standard magazine size holds 7 and the gun is a normal, semi-automatic (one shot per trigger pull) handgun.  There are lots of other new and onerous requirements.  I'll try to follow up with more later.

What are the odds that this sets up Heller v DC 2?  Pretty good, since he was originally planning to register his revolver and could easily have done exactly that.
