Today, June 26, marks the one-year anniversary of the landmark D.C. v. Heller case, in which the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Washington, D.C.â??s handgun ban and affirmed that the Second Amendment protects an individual right. The Court ruled that the Second Amendment protects â??the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation. This meaning is strongly confirmed by the historical background of the Second Amendment.â??
