WASHINGTON (AP) A federal judge is siding with the District of Columbia. The judge upheld the limitations on gun ownership that D.C. put in place following the Supreme Court's 2008 decision overturning the city's outright ban on handguns.

WASHINGTON (AP) The Internal Revenue Service says D.C. councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry owes more than $15,000 in unpaid income taxes from 2005 to 2008. The IRS filed a lien against him.
