Supreme Court And Guns

The Supreme Court has taken no action so far in the case involving the District of Columbia's ban on handguns.

The justices discussed the case at their private conference on Friday, but reached no resolution. Four justices must vote to grant an appeal, and the court does not always reach a decision the first time it discusses a case.

At issue is the capital's 31-year ban on handguns, among the strictest gun-control laws in the nation. In March, a federal appeals court struck down the ban as incompatible with the Second
Amendment.

The next time the court could announce its decision about hearing the case is November 26th.
