Dick Anthony Heller, 66, an armed security guard, (L) and his lawyer Clark Neily speak to reporters in front of the Supreme Court in Washington after the Court struck down the DC handgun ban on June 26, 2008. The Supreme Court, in a 5-4 ruling, affirmed the rights of individuals to own firearms, but the decision should leave most gun laws and regulations intact. (UPI Photo/Roger L. Wollenberg)
