Friday, October 26, 2007

On November 9, the U.S. Supreme Court will consider the petition for the District of Columbia v. Heller (formerly known as Parker) case.  We should learn within days whether or not the Court will decide to review the case.  Presuming they choose to hear it, the case could possibly heard in early 2008.  If the Court refuses to hear the case, the lower court’s decision, which struck down the D.C. gun ban as unconstitutional, will stand.
