Good morning Councilmember Mendelson and other members of the Committee. My name is Walter Smith. I am the Executive Director of the DC Appleseed Center for Law and Justice. Thank you for the opportunity to offer comments on how the District should revise its gun control laws in light of the U.S. Supreme Court’s recent decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. ___ (2008) (No. 07-290) (“Heller Slip Op.”).
