-Over at the Wall Street Journal, Professor Randy Barnett gives a good overview of what’s at stake.
-John Lott (of More Guns, Less Crime fame) has an article on National Review Online about the significance of the case.
-All of the case filings are available here.
–Reason Senior Editor Brian Doherty gives a good video overview of the case over at Reason TV.
-And, since I like graphs, here are the homicide rates in D.C. vs. other major cities since the gun ban was passed.
