Less than a week since McDonald…

and Chicago is being sued over it’s prohibitive gun laws yet again. This time it’s over the brand new laws passed to bring the city into “compliance” with the ruling in McDonald (which were, in fact, intended to nullify McDonald instead). The complaint can be found here.

It looks like they’re suing on eight counts.

  1. Count one goes after the definition of home that’s defined so narrowly.
  2. Count two goes after the requirement that they be 21 years of old, arguing it violates the constitutional rights of those adults over the age of 18 but under the age of 21 to keep and bear arms.
  3. Count three goes after the ban on gun shops.
  4. Count four goes after the ban on shooting ranges.
  5. Count five goes after the ban on having more than one operable gun in the home.
  6. Count six goes after the unsafe handgun roster that the Police are supposed to maintain under the new ordinance. The complaint argues that the “unbridled discretion” violates the due process clause of the 14th Amendment.
  7. Count seven challenges the ban on laser sights.
  8. Count eight actually goes after the prohibition on carry outside the home or fixed place of business.

The Plaintiffs are seeking a declaratory judgement, injunctive relief and attorneys fees.

I’m not surprised – in fact, I’ve been waiting for something like this. I’m just surprised they got it drafted and filed this quickly after the new laws were passed.
