Lawsuit? A criminal case?

He's referring to Easterday v. Deerfield. Nothing happened today, it was just a status. 4b6e5b9be9c226fac404822a3e60d45d.jpg
Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

And really....at this point.....who cares anyways. The assembly is gonna pass laws that make it all a moot point soon enough. That whole case was just a giant waste of money as it turns out.
