Wrap of gun issues in Congress, 2005
Over at Volokh Conspiracy, David Kopel has a wrapup of 2005 Congressional issues relating to firearms. As might be expected, it was a very good year.
One comment is worthy of note. Dave listed repeal of the DC handgun ban as a hope for 2006, and attorney Alan Gura commented:
"I would hope that "repeal of the D.C. ban on handgun possession and on possession of long guns in a condition usable for home defense" will not be necessary, as these laws should be struck down in Parker v. District of Columbia, D.C. Circuit No. 04-7041. I look forward to arguing the case on the merits sometime in the coming year. http://www.gurapossessky.com/newsandresources.htm"
