This opinion is subject to formal revision before publication in the preliminary print of the United States Reports. We consider whether a District of Columbia prohibition on the possession of usable handguns in the home violates the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
I The District of Columbia generally prohibits the possession of handguns. It is a crime to carry an unregistered firearm, and the registration of handguns is prohibited. Wholly apart from that prohibition, no person may carry a handgun without a license, but the chief of police may issue licenses for 1-year periods.
He applied for a registration certificate for a handgun that he wished to keep at home, but the District refused.
District of Columbia, F. The Court of Appeals directed the District Court to enter summary judgment for respondent. II We turn first to the meaning of the Second Amendment.

Marks, 3 East,K. Therefore, while we will begin our textual analysis with the operative clause, we will return to the prefatory clause to ensure that our reading of the operative clause is consistent with the announced purpose. As we said in United States v. Webster, American Dictionary of the English Language reprinted hereinafter Webster similar.
The term was applied, then as now, to weapons that were not specifically designed for military use and were not employed in a military capacity. Some have made the argument, bordering on the frivolous, that only those arms in existence in the 18th century are protected by the Second Amendment.Administrative law, the legal framework within which public administration is carried out.
