DC City Council hearings on gun law
Why is the DC Council even hearing (and Marion Barry even proposing) a (temporary) repeal of its handgun prohibition? I dunno. To moot the Parker case, and prevent it from doing the damage it might do, in a Supreme Court appeal, to the antigun cause? Or because they doubt the gun law's effectiveness? Either motivation would require more judgment and foresight than I'd easily credit to Barry or the Council. I have no third explanation.
