AP Breaking: Supremes' Ruling 'Casts Doubt' on Chicago Handgun Ban

Lord have mercy, even when it hits him in the face, the Associated Press's Mark Sherman won't concede the obvious:

"Cast doubt"? Is that what court rulings do now?

A USA Today item has it right:

Other sources describing the ruling accurately include: 

  • CNN -- "Court rules for gun rights, strikes Chicago handgun ban"
  • Fox News -- "High Court’s Big Ruling For Gun Rights." From text: "Today's ruling also invalidates Chicago's handgun ban."
  • Reuters, as carried at the New York Times -- "Supreme Court Rules Chicago Gun Ban Unconstitutional"

As with the Washington, DC Heller case in 2008, the real outrage is that the ruling was 5-4.
