Chicago Gun Ban Ruled Unconstitutional By Federal Judge
A federal judge has ruled that Chicago's ban on the sale of handguns is unconstitutional, Bloomberg reported Monday.
U.S. District Court Judge Edmond E. Chang said the municipal ordinance goes "too far." He delayed the effect of his ruling to allow the city to respond.
“Chicago’s ordinance goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and legal dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms," Chang wrote in the opinion, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.
