Chicago Mayor Says City Will Revise Gun Laws After High Court Ruling

June 28, 2010  | 

Chicago Mayor Richard Daley says the city will rewrite its gun ban ordinance because a U.S. Supreme Court ruling today has made the current law "unenforceable."

Daley said a new ordinance would be drafted soon and would protect the residents of Chicago as well as Second Amendment rights.
