In a victory for gun-control advocates, the Supreme Court on Monday rejected a 2nd Amendment challenge to laws that forbid the sale or possession of semiautomatic weapons that carry more than 10 rounds of ammunition. The justices by a 7-2 vote refused to review rulings by judges in Chicago who upheld a ban on assault weapons in the city of Highland Park, Ill., as a reasonable gun-control regulation. Justices Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia dissented/Tribune Washington bureau. More here.
Question: Will this ruling have a broader impact?
