Councilmember Marion Barry responds to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Decision to Overturn the District of Columbia Gun Ban
Barry feels decision sends the wrong message

Ward 8 Councilmember and former Mayor of the District of Columbia, Marion Barry responded today to the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning the District of Columbia long standing hand gun ban. The Councilmember expressed his disappointment in the Court’s decision and feels that it truly sends the wrong message to criminals.

“As a group and individually we are all disappointed in the courts decision. For years we have had a strict policy and zero tolerance when it comes to the use or possession of hand guns,” said the former Mayor. “I think this sends the wrong message and will create more opportunity for thefts of legal hand guns that can ultimately be used in the commission of crimes.”
