We’re studying the new ordinance being proposed in Chicago and I’ll have more to say about it later.
For now, please note that many of the rumors and early reports about what it contains are not accurate or vague in potentially misleading ways.
From our perspective, we are most interested in learning whether the new law addresses our litigation objectives. Two years ago, Chicago did not have perfect gun laws outside of what we challenged, and we’re not expecting perfection now. We do want to see whether the problems we identified are being addressed, and whether or not new problems are being created that merit addressing in this context. On the latter score, it is gratifying to see that some of the more radical proposals have not materialized.
