A federal judge has ruled Chicago's blanket ban on hand gun sales and transfers unconstitutional.
In a 35-page opinion published Monday, Judge Edmond E. Chang says the 2010 ordinance, which bans the sale and transfer of virtually all firearms within city limits, “goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and... dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms.” (Via WMAQ and CLTV)
Judge Chang delayed his ruling from taking effect immediately so as to allow the city time to appeal the decision.
