Feds could examine “gun owners’ rights”?

The Supreme Court has so far resisted elaborating on 2 landmark decisions that established a nationwide right to defend one’s home with a gun. That could change with a new appeal filed by gun owners that challenges a Chicago suburb’s assault weapons ban.

The appeal by Doctor Arie Friedman and the Illinois State Rifle Association argues that the city of Highland Park has violated their constitutional rights by banning all semi-automatic guns and ammunition clips of more than 10 rounds.
