Smith & Wesson to commemorate landmark gun ruling

By Associated Press | Monday, July 21, 2008 | http://www.bostonherald.com | Local Coverage
SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Smith & Wesson is manufacturing a commemorative revolver in honor of the landmark U.S. Supreme Court ruling that backed the right of individuals to own guns for self-defense.

The Springfield-based gun maker announced Monday it would present engraved Model 442 revolvers to the six plaintiffs in the lawsuit that led to the high court’s June 26 decision striking down a handgun ban in the District of Columbia.

The commemorative revolvers, made in partnership with the Second Amendment Foundation, will be sold in the fall, with a portion of sales going to the pro-gun legal group.

Smith & Wesson said the gun’s right-side plate will be engraved with the words “D.C. vs. Heller” on a scale of justice, which is tipped toward Heller. “Second Amendment” and “The right to keep and bear arms” will appear below the scale.

Well, considering that S&W was the first to surrender to the Mumbles Anti-Gun Compact?

True, but it was under very different ownership back then.

The folks that own S&W today obviously actually believe in the 2A.
