ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a legal brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court questioning the gun control in the District of Columbia (D.C.) in Washington, particularly for gays. The brief argues that the D.C. gun-control law violates the Second Amendment of the Bill of Rights. Furthermore, the brief states that the right to keep firearms is important for self-defense. Accordingly, the brief was filed on behalf of the Pink Pistols and Gays and Lesbians for Individual Liberty.
