CHICAGO – With the city's gun ban certain to be overturned, Mayor Richard Daley on Thursday introduced what city officials say is the strictest handgun ordinance in the United States.
The measure, which draws from ordinances around the country, would ban gun shops in Chicago and prohibit gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or garages, with a handgun.

Is it me or is it just a coincidence that chicago, which has some of the most restrictive and constitutionally illegal firearm laws; is also Obamas home town?

This whole circus is a grand waste of time.
Either "shall not be infringed" is honored or it isnt.
Honor the 2nd or amend it out. No more of this BS nonsense.
The new city ordinance bans gun shops in Chicago and prohibits gun owners from stepping outside their homes, even onto their porches or garages, with a handgun.
*Assault weapons are banned, as are sawed-off shotguns and "unsafe" handguns, as defined by the Chicago Police Department, which will maintain an online list of prohibited guns.

The High Court's four liberals are holding out to overturn Heller. I bet Kagan is just rubbing her hands in glee to get this thrown out.
