Re-registration is an assault on the Second Amendment
The latest gun-control scheme that starts on Jan. 1 will force every legal firearm owner in the nation’s capital to go in person to police headquarters to renew their registration certificates.
The nation’s capital is the only place in America where no one is allowed to exercise his right to bear arms. This is clearly unconstitutional, but the courts have thrown up repeated roadblocks to delay the law getting overturned for more than four years. The federal appeals court now will decide if this delay can continue.
The District would be the first jurisdiction in the country to require gun owners to purchase liability insurance, under a bill being considered by the D.C. Council.
"Attorney-client privilege is invoked for communications between an attorney and client for legal advice," explained Mr. Lyon. "The mayor's claim of attorney-client privilege on correspondence relating to Gregory would mean he received legal advice from OAG. That would make sense only if he had a role in deciding whether to prosecute Gregory."
George Lyon, 59, one of the plaintiffs, said the wait for the case to be resolved has been frustrating — particularly as he has watched firearm cases in other states advance through other court systems.
