State and local bans on guns could end

CHICAGO,IL (KSLA) – A Supreme Court decision could end state and local bans on guns.

By a 5 to 4 vote, the high court struck down a 30 year ban on handguns in the city of Chicago.

The Court says that the 2nd amendment, right to own a gun, forbids any outright bans on them.

Some East Texan residents say anyone who wants to legally buy a gun still has to pass a background check, so an outright ban does not make sense.
