    Free piece of Heller memorabilia from the SCOTUS

    Posted this in the Heller thread but wanted as many as possible to see it...

    Found this on another site:

    To commemorate this historic occasion, I called the Supreme Court's Public Information Office and ordered what is called a "slip opinion." The slip opinion is the court opinion bound into a little paperback pamphlet. It is the first printing of the Court's opinion. I thought this would make a nice momento.

    The cost is FREE. Just call 202-479-3211 ext 1 and ask for a printed copy of the slip opinion for Case 07-290 (DC v Heller). They will pop it in the mail to you. It might just become a collector's item some day. Of course, the preservation of our 2A rights was priceless.

    Just did it, took less than a minute...I started with "I would like to request a ..." and she finished my sentence. It was great.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Wow. The girl was friendly and helpful. She said they are getting lots of calls.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    Something must be wrong. 6 rings and then 30 seconds later I have it on the way to me, are we sure this is a Govt. office?

    I wonder what they are going to do with our names after we request one, are we now first on the list to get a visit when they try to confiscate our firearms?

    I just called, and they said they are out of printed copies. The dude that answered told me to download it and print it out.

    Yep, the girl was very friendly and helpful. Now I'm wondering if this is an elaborate identity theft scheme. There is no way a governmental agency could be that friendly.

    I just hung up and caught a dude.

    I stated my request and he said "Okay. Name please."
    I'd then provided him with my name and immediately went into my address to which he replied "Okay".

    When finished he then commented; "You can d/l this from the web you know?". My reply was yes I know. He then responded that the slip is "8.5"x11" to which I replied that is fine. He then asked; "So you want that mailed to you?!". I said yes. To which he replied; "Alright...!". He hung up.

    P.S. The phone rang for quite a bit, and I got put on hold and had to wait some more. I wonder if they're getting flooded by requests from DC members
