For more than a quarter-century, the District of Columbia government has enforced one of the most draconian gun control regimes in the nation — effectively forbidding D.C. residents from keeping functional firearms within their own homes. Yet violent criminals continue to carry guns, and the law-abiding citizens whom the District has disarmed are at their mercy. Recently, six District residents brought suit in federal court seeking to vindicate their Second Amendment rights. Please join us to hear from two of their attorneys on the meaning of the Second Amendment, the theory behind the lawsuit, and the prospects for success.
