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

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

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.
