Sublime 2 Text editor does not have by default have a key binding to delete the current line. The alternative way is to select the entire line i.e. by Command + L and then pressing backspace. I'm so used to Command + D command to delete the current line.

The easiest way to get this done is by recording a macro with these two commands and then binding Command + D to this user defined macro. You can use the Tools menu to record a macro with the above two commands. The macros are by default stored in Packages/User/ directory. The other option is to just create a new file with the below text.

Save the file as Delete-Line.sublime-macro in /yourhomedirectory/Library/Application Support/Sublime Text 2/Packages/User/ directory.

Next step would be to bind Command + D to this macro. This can be accomplished by adding a User Key Binding. Navigate to Sublime Text 2 | Preferences | Key Bindings - User menu and add (or append if you already have any custom key bindings) the below line

This should take care of it.
