    Thumbs up Chicago Gun Laws Being Challenged

    I was wondering how long it would be before this happened.

    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...gogunlaws.html

    Lawsuit filed against Chicago's new gun laws

    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.

    aldermen unanimously approved the ordinance Friday, four days after the Supreme Court ruled Americans have the right to have handguns anywhere for self-defense
    and dont forget this part:



    City officials responded with the new ordinance, which bans gun shops in Chicago and prohibits gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or in their garages, with a handgun.
    Now I am no rocket scientist here, but I am pretty sure that there is quite a big difference between "anywhere" and "prohibits...from stepping outside of their homes"

    But hey what can I say I must just be a completely screwed up guy, especially since I am originally from that horrific state (not chicago, though it isnt too different in other place unfortunately) and then moved to CA for work :headbang:

    I was from Southern Illinois, and it didnt make a difference. The whole state sucked.
