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.
