Mendelson Moves for Changes to D.C. Gun Control Bill
As Congress moves to strip D.C. of local control of its gun registration requirements, council member Phil Mendelson is putting forward his own changes to the legislative bill pending before the council.
Under Mendelson's amendments, "most semi-automatic pistols
will be eligible for registration, but a person will not be able, lawfully, to rapidly fire a large
supply of ammunition at once." He also would establish penalties for gun owners who allow children access to the weapons, and he would repeal the limitation of one handgun per registrant.
Mendelson will hold two public hearings on the bill: September 18 and October 1.
