Battle over gun control

1 min

Three weeks ago, the US Supreme Court ruled that the second amendment of the Constitution should apply to all parts of the country. It reaffirms the right of every American citizen to carry a gun. But the move has called into question local gun laws. Laws in Chicago, for example, make it difficult to register handguns. Athough the court's decision does not throw out the Chicago-area laws, it does mean a federal appeal court will have to reconsider its ruling.
