    Court rules for gun rights, strikes Chicago handgun ban
    In another dramatic victory for firearm owners, the Supreme Court has ruled unconstitutional Chicago, Illinois' 28-year-old strict ban on handgun ownership, a potentially far-reaching case over the ability of state and local governments to enforce limits on weapons.

    A conservative majority of justices on Monday reiterated its two-year-old conclusion the Constitution gives individuals equal or greater power than states on the issue of possession of 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.

    Do we really have to wonder? He has already been looking at what DC did after the Heller decision as a model for what he will do in Chicago. They will institute a permit system that will be so onerous that most people will either give up or never try.

    Heller II now is our next hurdle.
