The National Rifle Association is wasting no time in asking the Supreme Court to strike down the latest verdict on Chicago’s handgun ban.

On Tuesday, a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the gun ordinance in Chicago and the Oak Park suburb.

NRA officials say last year’s gun rights decision in the District of Columbia should also appeal to local and state laws.

If the Supreme Court agrees to pick up the case, it will not get underway until September.
