Guns, Congress and the Press
 
Dick Heller,  the litigant in District of Columbia v. Heller – which resulted in the landmark 2008 Supreme Court decision affirming the individual’s right to own firearms – will appear at a National Press Club Newsmakers news conference on  Wednesday,  June 5,  to make his case that many in the media and Congress have purposely confused the public with proposed and implemented gun legislation. He will also speak about potential new litigation to preserve gun ownership right.
 
Gun ownership rights activist Heller asserts that press bias and congressional actions are aimed at confiscating guns and that more balance is needed in presenting gun control and ownership issues to the public.
 
District of Columbia v. Heller was an historic case in which the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual’s right to possess a firearm for traditionally lawful purposes, such as self-defense, within the home and within federal enclaves. As a result, over 200 lawsuits have been filed nationwide challenging Second Amendment Rights infringements. Long-standing gun control regulations have been amended in many states in order to comply with this landmark decision.
 
This National Press Club Newsmakers news conference is scheduled for 
10:00AM, Wednesday, June 5, 2013 in the 
Club’s Lisagor Room on the 13th Floor of the National Press Building, 
529 14th St, NW, Washington, DC, 20045.
