Today a ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court was expected regarding whether the Washington D.C. handgun ban violates the Second Amendment. However, that long-awaited ruling was not released – so this potentially landmark decision will most certainly come tomorrow morning when the court is planning to issue the last of its rulings for the term.
The case, District of Columbia v. Heller, which was argued nearly four months ago, is the center of the decades-old debate over whether the Second Amendment grants individuals the right to own firearms.
The Washington Post has reported that Mayor Adrain M. Fenty is planning to hold a news conference at the John A. Wilson Building after the decision is announced.
Also, I will discuss this ruling, the implications of the ruling, and the Constitutional Amendment that grants our right to bear arms on Political Pistachio Radio on Thursday Night – see you there!
