Gura asks Judge Scullin to hold D.C. in Contempt in Palmer Carry Case

In the ongoing legal battle by Alan Gura to force the District of Columbia City Council to respect the second amendment of the Constitution, a request that the City government be held in contempt was file on Tuesday, the 18th of November, 2014.  It seems to come as a response to the city claiming that the Court lacked jurisdiction, because no request for a finding of contempt was fired.

Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr gave the DC government until the 4th of December, and Gura's reply by the 11th of December.  From
TEXT SCHEDULING ORDER: regarding the # 83 Motion for Order to Show Cause. Response to Motion due by 12/4/2014. Reply to Response to Motion due by 12/11/2014. IT IS SO ORDERED by Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr. on 11/20/2014. (Scullin, Frederick) (Entered: 11/20/2014)
 #83 is the  proposed order asked for by Alan Gura:
This matter came before the Court on Plaintiffs’ motion to hold Defendants in contempt.  Defendants are hereby ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE, by ____________, 2014, why they should not be held in contempt for violating this Court’s injunction entered July 26, 2014.
Both parties are therefore to present arguments about whether Judge Scullin should issue an order asking the DC city government why they should not be held in contempt.

Actual lawyers, feel free to enlighten us as to what this likely means.
