The capital city is suing to stop the legalization of handguns:
Mayor Adrian Fenty's administration wants D.C.'s gun ban upheld despite a federal appeals court overturning the ban last month.A statement from Fenty's office said that on Monday, they will appeal the decision. They plan to petition for the case to be reheard at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Fenty and many other groups have publicly shown their support for the gun ban in recent weeks.
Someone's eventually got to nail down Jim Webb on this issue, right? Meanwhile, the congressional GOP is perfectly ready to insert anti-gun ban language into next week's returning D.C. voting rights bill, with the knowledge it'll inspire Democrats to scrap the whole thing.
