On 5/25/2017, Superintendent Eddie Johnson predicted a 50% reduction is Chicago violence within 3 years of SB1722 becoming law.  The bill was signed into law on 6/23/2017. The clock is now ticking.

Thank you for your effort!
"The point of [so-called "assault weapon" bans]...is not to ban firearms that are dangerous, it's to ban firearms that gun owners want to own because the people making the laws don't like gun owners. If we want to buy non-semiauto AR-style rifles, they'll ban those too, and for the same reason."

Here is a case which has the potential to be SCOTUS bound because if the district court decision is affirmed in the 9th Circuit, it will create a SCOTUS Rule 10 split with the Eleventh Circuit if the Eleventh Circuit affirms the decision of the district court in GeorgiaCarry.Org et. al. v. Army Corps of Engineers 


The 9th Circuit case is Nesbitt v. Army Corp of Engineers.


The 11th Circuit district court held that Army Corp of Engineer recreational areas, where guns are allowed for hunting and target shooting, are "sensitive" places under the Heller decision where arms can be prohibited.  The 9th Circuit district court judge came to the opposite conclusion.
