Score One For Gun Owners

Posted by wlpo on April 5, 2012

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) – Gun rights advocates score a victory with the Illinois Supreme Court allowing a challenge to a Cook County assault weapons ban to proceed.

The court today ruled that lower courts were wrong to throw out the challenge. The Supreme Court says it wants the trial court to hear evidence on whether assault weapons get the same Second Amendment protections as handguns.

The county imposed the ban back in 1993. It had been upheld by trial courts and appeals courts.
