Local gun control laws are Unconstitutional.

So in the wake of the Heller case SCOTUS is accepting another case stating just that.


High Court to Look at Local Gun Control Laws

Wednesday, September 30, 2009 10:25 AM

WASHINGTON -- The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether strict local and state gun control laws violate the Second Amendment, ensuring another high-profile battle over the rights of gun owners.

The court said Wednesday it will review a lower court ruling that upheld a handgun ban in Chicago. Gun rights supporters challenged gun laws in Chicago and some suburbs immediately following the high court's decision in June 2008 that struck down a handgun ban in the District of Columbia, a federal enclave.

The new case tests whether last year's ruling applies as well to local and state laws.

Midnight Rider,

This good news. Hopefully the court will make the right decision and rule in favor of gun owners.
