NRA fights local handgun ban

Just two days after a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a handgun ban ordinance in Chicago and Oak Park, the National Rifle Association has asked the Supreme Court to strike it down.

The NRA wants the court to rule that last year's gun rights decision in the District of Columbia applies to local and state laws as well.

If the Supreme Court agrees to hear the case, it's not expected to happen until September.
