Exercise of Rights

Our new mayor is proposing an ordinance to allow gun ranges in the city.

After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down our handgun ban, the City Council made pistols legal again - on condition of paying some money and taking a shooting course.

But gun ranges remained banned. So if you lived in the city and wanted a legal pistol, you had to travel to the suburbs to take the shooting course.
The city is currently facing a federal lawsuit saying the city’s ban of gun ranges in the city has created a burden for those seeking a Chicago gun permit.
That lawsuit was going to cost the taxpayers' money. And the outcome was predictable.

If there's a right to learn to shoot,
the city was sure to lose that suit.
