Cam Edwards speaks with Joel Brodsky, attorney for an 84-year-old Chicago man named LaFerena Batchelor who has been denied his application for a gun permit. Batchelor passed all the mandatory requirements for the permit, served in both WWII and Korea and has been a generally law abiding citizen all his life. However, despite frequent vandalism in the rough neighborhood, he is not allowed to defend himself because 15 years ago he discharged a legally owned gun into the ground of his backyard to scare off a pack of wild dogs. It was a city ordinance ticket violation, not a criminal one. Originally aired 6/30/2011.
