NRA recovers $125,000 in attorney fees against Chicago
In Gowder v. Chicago. Chicago barred issuance of a handgun permit to anyone with a firearm-related misdemeanor, including nonviolent ones, and Gowder had been convicted of misdemeanor carrying.
The case is a nice illustration of how many courts are taking the Second Amendment seriously, and extending it past the context of absolute bans.
