Supreme Court Rules For Gun Rights; Nixes Chicago Handgun Ban
In a victory for gun owners, the Supreme Court has declared Chicago’s 28-year ban on gun ownership unconstitutional.
A conservative majority of justices on Monday reiterated its two-year-old conclusion the Constitution gives individuals equal or greater power than states to possess certain firearms for self-protection.
The court however said local jurisdictions still retain the flexibility to preserve some “reasonable” gun control measures currently in place nationwide.
The vote was 5-4, and was along party lines.
