ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Supreme Court is going to address the issue of gun control. They will debate whether an individual has the right to bear arms. If they rule against the rights of an individual District of Columbia law and other federal, state, and local gun-control statutes, the courts will be protected from legal challenges. However, if the Supreme Court rules in favor of individual rights countless lawsuits will be filed nationwide.
