Federal Court Upholds Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Awards the NRA $125,000 in Attorney’s FeesSo while the city is effectively bankrupt and they keep raising taxes/fees on not only gun owners but all the other residents of the city, they keep paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars to try and keep their pet gun control laws.
On September 26, 2012 the United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois awarded the National Rifle Association (NRA) $125,000 to reimburse it for attorney’s fees spent winning a lawsuit against the City of Chicago over a Chicago firearm ordinance on behalf of NRA member Shawn Gowder. In striking down the law, the Court held that the ordinance is unconstitutionally void for vagueness and also violates the plaintiff’s Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.
