Good morning –
I know the 2nd Amendment has been talked about in the ‘Dope’, but I have a question regarding Chicago’s ordinance that ban’s registration of handguns. As I understand it, it is not legal to possess a handgun in Chicago, but that doesn’t mean you can’t buy one – a resident can buy one and store it in a suburban gun club, for instance.
While the IL constitution states that the right to possess is “subject to Police power”, the report from the IL constitutional convention clearly states that the intent was NOT to ban ownership.
My question is how come this current ban on possession has not been challenged ? How can Chicago “get away” with it ? Is it because of the ability to buy one and store it elsewhere ?
Can someone enlighten me, please ?
