Supremes Open Season on City Gun Laws – The Supreme Court knocked down Chicago’s ban on handguns yesterday and cleared the way for gun rights groups to file suit against New York’s City’s tough laws on who can keep and carry. The initial reaction of Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) to the 5-4 ruling by the Supreme Court on 2nd Amendment rights was that “I am hopeful that it will not require New York to change any of its gun laws.”
