McDonald v. Chicago
From Calguns Foundation Wiki
McDonald et al v. Chicago
United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit with two issues:
1. Is the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms incorporated as against the states pursuant to either the Privileges or Immunities or Due Process Clauses of the Fourteenth Amendment? 2. Do Chicago ordinances banning handguns, requiring annual re- registration of guns, mandating that guns be registered prior to their possession within city limits, and permanently prohibiting the ownership of any particular gun whose registration lapses, violate Plaintiffs’ rights to arms and to equal protection?
Oral arguments were held Tuesday, May 26, 2009. An MP3 of the oral argument in front of Posner, Easterbrook, and Bauer is available from the Seventh Circuit's website.
