McCain is pushing a challenge for the Chicago ban...

... and Obama is from Chicago and part of the legislature that has maintained that ban.  Not that I was in any doubt that McCain was better than Obama on guns before.  I'm wondering if this issue will be enough to ignite a debate on the firearms issue that will change the outcome of the election?  We'll see, I guess.

One awkward part:
"Unlike the elitist view that believes Americans cling to guns out of bitterness, today's ruling recognizes that gun ownership is a fundamental right -- sacred, just as the right to free speech and assembly," McCain said.
You mean like the First Amendment rights to free speech and assembly that your McCain-Feingold campaign finance "reform" act violated?
