Presents overview of Congressional and D.C. firearms legislation following D.C. v. Heller, in which Supreme Court ruled three firearms provisions of the D.C. code unconstitutional. Analyzes current D.C. law after passage of the Firearms Control Amendment Act of 2008 and the Inoperable Pistol Amendment Act of 2008, both of which amended D.C. code in effort to comply with ruling in Heller as well as provide different range of restrictions on firearm possession. Examines possible effect of Congressional proposals on D.C. firearms laws, focusing on H.R. 5162/S. 3265, both the Second Amendment Enforcement Act, to overturn or loosen provisions of existing D.C. gun laws. Provides section-by-section analysis of Congressional proposals.
