WASHINGTON, Sept 28 (Reuters) - The mayor of Washington, D.C., and other top city officials on Tuesday pleaded with Congress not to overturn the capital city's gun laws, often described as the strictest in the nation.
The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday is likely to pass a bill striking the district's ban on hand gun ownership, its gun registration system, and other gun limits. Critics of the measure say it will go even further, and let people walk around the nation's capital with fully loaded assault weapons.
