D.C. gun-control debate holds national clues

Posted: 01.02.14 04:00 PM

Gun-control legislation got a much closer look over the past year in the wake of the Connecticut school shootings ó but the District and gun-rights activists have been fighting their own battle on the issue for the better part of a decade.And the experience in the nationís capital is likely to provide clues to how the gun-rights debate is likely to go in 2014.Lawmakers on both sides of the issue on Capitol Hill consistently cited parts of the Supreme Courtís 2008 District of Columbia v. Heller decision that struck down the Districtís long-standing handgun ban to bolster their positions. But the man behind the case and other gun-rights activists continue fighting to chip away at stringent gun laws in place in the District and elsewhere, as gun-control advocates try to stiff-arm the efforts and claim their own victories where they can.
