So the Supreme Court is taking up guns again:
The Supreme Court set the stage for a historic ruling on gun rights and the 2nd Amendment by agreeing today to hear a challenge to Chicago’s ban on handguns.
At issue is whether state and local gun-control ordinances can be struck down as violating the “right to keep and bear arms” in the 2nd Amendment.
A ruling on the issue, due by next summer, could open the door to legal challenges to various gun control measures in cities and states across the nation.
The case also will decide whether the 2nd Amendment protects a broad constitutional right, similar to the 1st Amendment’s right to free speech or the 4th Amendment’s protection against unreasonable searches and seizures.
If federal law overrides state & local law when state & local law is more lenient, then what argument is there for it not to override when state & local law is more strict?
