DC Gun Law

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty  said: "We have made the determination that this law can and
should be defended and we are willing to take our case to the highest
court in the land to protect the city's residents. Our handgun law has
saved countless lives -- keeping guns out of the hands of those who
would hurt others or themselves."

The ban on firearms in Washington DC,
made the city the MURDER CAPITAL of the world.
I am safer on the streets of Baghdad than on the streets of Washington DC.

I am praying that the Supreme Court will agree with the DC Circuit Court on this issue.
The D.C. Circuit Court ruled on March 9 that the Second Amendment does
guarantee an individual right to possess a gun -- at least within one's
own home. The ruling was the first by a federal appeals court to strike
down a gun control law based on that view of the Amendment's reach. The
case is Parker, et al., v. District of Columbia (Circuit docket
04-7041). On May 8, the Circuit Court refused by a 6-4 vote to rehear
the case en banc.
