    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court revived the legal battle over gun rights in America, saying it would decide whether the constitutional right of individuals to own firearms trumped state and local laws.

    In a brief order on Wednesday, the court said it would settle the question by ruling in a dispute over a strict gun control law in Chicago that bans the ownership of handguns in most cases.

    Banning guns is not going to stop criminals from getting their hands on them, or using them. It WILL, however, take away the ability for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves, should the need arise.

    I don't own any myself, and don't believe I need any, but I don't see the point behind taking away someone else's ability to own one.

    I'm all for criminal background checks, and a waiting period to purchase one, though.

    I agree with Dis on this. If guns are truly outlawed in this country common sense tells you the criminals will still have them and then the odds will be more on their side when it comes to committing crimes because people will not be able to defend themselves or their property. What do you think is going to happen if the Supreme Court declares it unconstitutional to own a gun? Do you really believe all the gang bangers are going to line up outside of the police station to turn in their guns?

    I don't think it's retarded. Certain types of criminals shouldn't be able to purchase guns.

    I do think that it is unconstitutional for cities to deny their citizens something that the US constitution allows.
