ABSTRACT
The article discusses the decision on the case McDonald versus City of Chicago and the applicability of the Second Amendment. It states that the Supreme Court has ruled that state and local authorities have no right to prohibit handgun ownership. Justice Samuel Alito notes that the Second Amendment safeguards the right to bear and keep arms for self-defense. Chicago, Illinois has argued that the Second Amendment is not applicable to the localities or states, but just to the federal government.
