Washington, DC - -(AmmoLand.com)-Supreme Court will hear the Chicago gun ban case to determine if the Heller decision is incorporated to the states.

The Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether strict local and state gun control laws violate the Second Amendment, ensuring another high-profile battle over the rights of gun owners.

The court said Wednesday it will review a lower court ruling that upheld a handgun ban in Chicago.

The Supreme Court last year struck down Washington D.C.’s gun ban, but the question remains whether states and local governments fall under the same requirements.

Cases against Chicago challenge several gun laws, including the city’s ban on handguns. After the Supreme Court ruled in the D-C case, suburban Morton Grove, Wilmette, Evanston and Winnetka dropped their gun bans.
