SCOTUS Agrees to Hear Chicago Gun Ban Case — What’s An Olympics Without Starter Pistols?

Another Second Amendment battle is brewing, this time in Chicago, and the Supreme Court is getting involved — hey, it was either this or ban the Olympic shooting events:

The Supreme Court agreed Wednesday 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 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.

Hopefully the Chicago gun ban isn’t lifted… if it is, somebody might get shot!

This could be a close decision. What would a wise Latina woman do?
