D.C. elected traitor Phil Mendelson, chairman of the Committee on Criminal Safety and the Mafia, refused to read the lawsuit challenging his life's work of making the world safer for criminals, and said he vehemently disagrees with law-abiding citizens being able to defend themselves effectively.http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/aug/07/lawsuit-seeks-right-to-carry-guns-in-public/
D.C. Council member Phil Mendelson, chairman of the Committee on Public Safety and the Judiciary, had not seen the lawsuit but said he disagrees with the basic premise.
"Mr. Gura is treading uncharted ground claiming that the Second Amendment offers the right to carry," he said.
Mr. Raymond, who is not a D.C. resident, was stopped for speeding in the District in April 2007 while he was transporting a gun for which he had permits in Maryland and Florida. He was charged with carrying a pistol without a license and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor unregistered gun and unregistered ammunition charges.
Patience, patience, patience. Sounds good to me. Thanks!!Chicago's restrictions on ownership of handguns is before the Supreme Court in the McDonald case. This case and one in California will affect carry restrictions in other jurisdictions, especially if the Supreme Court finds in McDonald that the second amendment applies to the states. So they are interelated.
