PHOENIX – As Otis McDonald v. City of Chicago is expected to be argued at the U.S. Supreme Court in February 2010, Phoenix-based Bloomfield Press, the largest producer and distributor of gun-law books in the country, has joined 34 California district attorneys, eight Nevada district attorneys, former Graham County, Ariz. Sheriff Richard Mack, Arizona Citizens Defense League, along with police organizations and other persons and groups concerned with protecting the public safety benefits of citizens possessing firearms for self-defense.
