Today, the court decided to review the District of Columbia's handgun ban that's been in place for 31 years. It basically makes it illegal to own a handgun.
A federal appeals court recently struck it down saying the ban goes against the second amendment but the government wants the court to uphold the law.
Justices will begin hearing arguments in the case early next year.
