Happy Monday.

In case you missed it, over the weekend a federal judge in Washington, D.C. struck down that city's public handgun ban. This is the latest in the "bear arms" line of cases that is attempting, with mixed success so far, to give meaning to the full range of constitutional protections when it comes to firearms—not just to "keep" them, as D.C. allows in the home, but also to bear them.

The White House is asking Congress to give it a new war on terrorism authorization at the same time it wants Congress to rescind the Iraq AUMF. I think neither is likely to happen this year.

CNN has its monthly poll out. The portion on the 2016 GOP field shows a tightly packed group. As Doug Mataconis pointed out on Twitter, unlike recent presidential elections, there appears to be no early frontrunner yet.


As I have written before, early polls don't tell you much about the eventual outcome, but they do tell you where people—and money—are early. There are years yet for someone else to get in the race, but these are the folks who are posturing for it already. In other words, they're trying to get the early lead.
