The Supreme Court Hears Gun Case

With all that's going on in U.S. politics, it's nice that there's a hopeful glimmer in the vast darkness. Personal Liberty Digest reports:

In one of the biggest cases to come before the Supreme Court in years, justices are hearing arguments today in McDonald v. Chicago over the city’s 28-year-old handgun ban. It has also prompted both proponents and opponents of the ban to once again voice their cases.

The NY Daily News adds:

The case involves 76-year-old Chicago resident Otis McDonald, who claimed the city's 1982 ban on handguns left him prey to street gangs.
