DC v. Heller Commemorative Handgun

Model 442Smith and Wesson today announced an engraved Model 442 handgun to commemorate the landmark Second Amendment decision DC v. Heller.

The Smith & Wesson Model 442 will be laser engraved with an insignia to commemorate the ruling by the Supreme Court. On the right side plate of the revolver, the scale of justice is depicted with the wording “D.C. vs. Heller” across the scale. The balance is in favor of the “Heller” name with the court date of “June 26, 2008″ positioned across the top. Underneath the scale, the side plate reads “Second Amendment” and “The right to keep and bear arms” in white lettering.

The revolver will be given to each of the six original defendants in the case and will go on sale to the public this fall. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Second Amendment Fund.

I’m not sure how I feel about the whole commemorative handgun thing, I can’t claim to be an active member of the gun-toting community. If you love guns and the Supreme Court, I imagine that this would be a pretty neat toy to buy.
