Texas asks Supreme Court to hear handgun ban challenge

In a brief filed Tuesday with the U.S. Supreme Court, the top legal officers in Texas and 32 other states said state and local handgun bans violate Second Amendment protections allowing individuals to keep and bear arms. The brief, submitted by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott on behalf of his counterparts in the other states, asks the court to hear a legal challenge against a handgun ban in Chicago.
