Judge strikes down Chicago’s ban on retail gun stores
A federal judge has struck down the city of Chicago’s ban on licensed gun stores.
But the city will appeal Wednesday’s ruling.
Judge Edmond Chang said the city has no constitutional authority to outlaw legitimate gun dealers.
The ruling further guts what was once the most restrictive municipal gun law in the country.
Is also makes it legal for a gun owner to sell his gun to anyone with a legal firearms ID card.
Mayor Emanuel is directing the city to appeal the judge’s ruling, and ask for a six-month delay while city officials explore new ways to regulate gun sales.
