Dick A. Heller, a security officer, tried registering a handgun to keep at home for self-defense, but was denied the right by Washington D.C. officials. Eventually, he worked his way up to the famous case, "D.C. v. Heller."

The case was a landmark for Second Amendment rights activists because it's the first time in about 70 years that the Supreme Court directly addressed the scope of the Second Amendment, concluding that it is an individual right to bear arms, which is unconnected to service in the militia.

Demonbane vs all of marvel and DC?

It's impossible to definitively say who would win in a fight between Demonbane and all characters from Marvel and DC, as power levels and abilities vary greatly within each universe. Both publishers have characters with reality-altering powers and god-like abilities, making the outcome of such a battle highly subjective and open to interpretation. Ultimately, it would depend on the specific circumstances and rules set for the confrontation.
