Gun rights case likely to be landmark Supreme Court ruling

LA Times:
Regardless of who prevails, the case of McDonald vs. Chicago figures to be a landmark in the history of the 2nd Amendment and its "right to keep and bear arms." It will decide whether the 2nd Amendment applies only to federal gun laws or if it can be used across the nation to strike down state and local gun restrictions.

A ruling overturning the Chicago ordinance would open the door to gun rights suits nationwide. "You will see a wave of lawsuits against state and local gun laws. This is just the first shot in a broad-based gun rights offensive,"

  1. the issue is almost certainly going to be decided in favor of the second amendment not only applying to federal law. almost every other amendment has been found to apply to state laws as well under various other laws.
