Supreme Court To Decide On Taking Heller Case

Friday, November 9, 2007

The U.S. Supreme Court is in conference today to consider the petition for the District of Columbia v. Heller (formerly known as Parker) case.  The Court may have an announcement as soon as next Tuesday as to whether  they will review the case.  If they choose to hear it, the case will likely be 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.
