Chicago Gun Ban Could Be Overturned

McDonald vs. City of Chicago, which the Supreme Court heard March 2, could overturn Chicago's gun ban. Should the ban be overturned, employers will need to consider the implications. "As a result, employers may experience an increase in employees who legally own and possess firearms," says Jessica Walberg, an associate at Ford & Harrison.

In a similar case in 2008, the Supreme Court ruled that a handgun ban in the District of Columbia violated the Second Amendment--the right to bear arms. Many experts believed the rejection of this 32-year ban would mean a looser attitude toward gun ownership, but that wasn't the case.
