Chicago Sued Over Gun Laws … Redux

“Four Chicago residents and a gun sellers group have sued the city over a tough new gun control ordinance put in place after the U.S. Supreme Court made a decades-old firearms ban unenforceable. The federal lawsuit claims the new ordinance, which city officials say is the strictest in the country, infringes on residents’ constitutional right to bear arms. The plaintiffs want the measure declared “null and void” and the city barred from enforcing it.” (AP, Wednesday)
