Chicago law forbidding gun sales struck down
Chicago bans all gun sales within city limits (including sales by licensed gun dealers), and the court strikes that down. I've read the opinion (don't have an online link yet) and it seems an honest application of "intermediate review." The burden is upon the City to prove real, not speculative, reasons to believe the ordinance will hold down crime. The City cannot come up any evidence. Criminals don't buy from licensed dealers, they get guns from theft. That crime guns trace disproportionately to some licensed dealers may just mean those dealers do more business, hence their guns are more exposed to theft from the purchasers. In any event, the City argues that its buyers can just go to dealers outside city limits -- but that contradicts its claim that not allowing dealers inside city limits somehow limits crime.
