George Lyon, Esq. has been at the forefront of the fight for second amendment rights in the nation’s capital. In 2003 he joined with five other plaintiffs in the landmark case that resulted in the United States Supreme Court confirming that the Constitution guarantees an individual right to own a functional firearm. That decision, District of Columbia v. Heller, overturned DC’s prohibition on owning a handgun and now stands as a bulwark against infringements on second amendment rights.

In 2009, he joined with three other plaintiffs and the Second Amendment Foundation to challenge the District of Columbia’s absolute ban on carrying a firearm for personal protection outside the home. That case, Palmer v. District of Columbia, resulted in the first issuance of DC concealed carry licenses in some 40 years.

Mr. Lyon is a member of the Virginia, District of Columbia and Supreme Court bars. He has practiced administrative law and civil and appellate litigation for more than 35 years in Virginia and DC with an emphasis on communications. He earned his law degree in 1979 from the Marshall Wythe Law School of the College of William and Mary where he served on the William and Mary Law Review. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Law and Society from the University of Virginia where he was special projects and production editor of The Cavalier Daily and a member of the Jefferson Literary and Debating Society.

He is the author of “Ethical Responsibilities of Defense Counsel in the Juvenile Court” published in the Journal of Juvenile Law. Mr. Lyon has extensive firearms training in each of handgun, shotgun and rifle. He is certified by the District of Columbia Metropolitan Police Department as a DC Concealed Carry Instructor. He is also certified as a firearm instructor by the Maryland State Police. He holds NRA Firearm Instructor certifications in Pistol, Personal Protection in the Home, and Range Safety Officer. He holds a federal firearms collector’s license and is the President of the DC Chapter of the Community Association for Firearms Education.

Mr. Lyon has written and spoken on a variety of firearms and self-defense legal issues. Mr. Lyon has testified frequently before the DC City Council on firearms related issues. His advocacy was instrumental in effecting positive changes in several provisions of DC law, including relaxation of ammunition restrictions, allowing possession of firearms in the District in the course of training, and conforming DC law with federal law relating to armor piecing handgun ammunition and permissible shotgun barrel length. He is continuing his advocacy for rational firearms regulation with Arsenal Attorneys.
