    SAF Files Lawsuit Challenging Chicago’s Handgun Ban

    Published by Mark Taff under news release

    For Immediate Release

    Contact: Alan Gottlieb (425) 454-7012

    BELLEVUE, WA – Following Thursday’s (5-4) ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller that the Second Amendment protects an individual civil right to keep and bear arms, and that a municipal gun ban violates that right, the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA) filed a federal lawsuit (complaint) challenging the City of Chicago’s long-standing handgun ban.

    “Chicago’s handgun ban has failed to stop violent crime,” SAF founder Alan Gottlieb stated. “It’s time to give the Constitution a chance.”

    Awesome quote!

    Good luck, and we're rooting for you.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.
