Recently at Brian Doherty on the DC Gun Case

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court will issue its decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, the first major gun-rights case to be decided by the Court since the 1930s.

Heller deals with Washington, D.C.'s ultra-restrictive gun control laws, which have been in place since 1976. reason Senior Editor Brian Doherty, author of This Is Burning Man: The Rise of a New American Underground and Radicals for Capitalism: A Freewheeling History of the Modern Libertarian Movement, is writing a book about the case and its ramifications; the volume will be released later this year by Cato Books.

Back in March, Doherty gave a quick rundown of his project. Click below to check out the video.
