Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers v. City of Chicago challenges five aspects of Chicago's law

Monday, June 24, 2013

Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers v. City of Chicago (formerly known as Benson v. City of Chicago) challenges five aspects of Chicago's law: (1) the ban on any form of carriage; (2) the ban on gun stores; (3) the ban on firing ranges; (4) the ban on self-defense in garages, porches, and yards; and (5) the ban on keeping more than one gun in an operable state. The case is still pending in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois. That court rejected the city’s attempt to consolidate this case with Hall (described above), but has put the case on hold until the larger debate in Illinois is resolved via the Shepard case.
