Rapid response

A group of plaintiffs has already filed a lawsuit against the new gun law that  Chicago's municipal government hastily cobbled together and then unanimously passed after their previous law was deemed unconstitutional (or, as the Tribune would have it, was "gutted") by the Supreme Court.

I'm no law-talkin' guy, but seeing as how they rushed this through just days after the previous statute was struck down—in other words, without much of any legal review—I'm guessing there are a bunch of provisions in it that could potentially be struck down by the courts.
