Firearms instructor George L. Lyon Jr. said the bill marks "substantial progress" for Second Amendment rights in the District, a city that prohibited handguns for decades before the U.S. Supreme Court lifted the ban in 2008 with its landmark opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller.
Mr. Lyon, a local gun activist and plaintiff in the Heller case, said he informed Mr. Mendelson's office months ago of a key problem in the District - namely he could not, legally, show a student how to grip a gun and other safety pointers in the classroom.
