Otis McDonald, man who successfully fought to overturn Chicago handgun ban, dies at 80

http://abclocal.go.com/wls/story?section=news/local/chicago_news&id=9492461



The retired Chicago man who fought successfully to overturn the city's handgun ban has died.

Otis McDonald was the lead defendant in the case before the U.S. Supreme Court four years ago. The court ruled that second amendment rights could not be infringed by local governments.

McDonald died Friday of cancer at the age of 80.

Rest in peace.

2. RIP Otis

 

I met Otis several times and his wife once. He lived in my "old" neighborhood and I ran into him at DiCola's seafood on Western Avenue where we'd both pick up dinner to bring home.

He not only took Daley head on and won, but he was a gentle and classy guy who had no problem telling his critics what he thought of them - politely of course, but directly.

He was also a US Army Veteran and preferred the plain old 1911 that he used in the service.
