Gun Ban Stands (for now)

But even the judge admits that it might not stand much longer:
  • In his ruling, Shadur appeared to caution the city that its victory might be short-lived.

    "This court should not be misunderstood as either rejecting or endorsing the logic of plaintiff's argument. It may well carry the day before a court that is unconstrained by the obligation to follow the unreversed precedent of a court that occupies a higher position in the judicial firmament," the decision stated.

Even Washington is bowing to the inevitable and permitting gun ownership:
  • Earlier this week, the D.C. Council replaced its overturned law with new regulations that require gun owners to receive five hours of safety training and register their firearms every three years.

    Gun owners in the nation's capital would also face criminal background checks every six years.

DC isn't banning guns. They realize that that train has left the station. They just want to put up more hoops to jump through and make it inconvenient to own a gun.

The Honorable Milton Shadur is known as an avowed police hater and an avowed liberal. You can figure out the rest of the story in regards to Chicago's unconstitutional gun control.

The damn law has been struck down. It has no meaning and I expect that if the City tries to enforce it that they'll be paying out quite a bit to the gun owner.

Thank God I don't live in Chicago any more.

Daley don't care because:
#1- he's above the Law
#2- although being a dumb-ass, he knows that the law abiding citizen registering their guns is another revenue source [as usual] he can get his filthy little paws on.
#3-He will pay all legal bills with Taxpayer money, not his, to fight the ban, even though the U.S. Supreme Court ruled down his commie ordinance, thus wasting even more taxpayers dollars. His dimwitted aldermen and CityCouncil will go along with him as they are all chicken-shits.
#4- If anyone sues the City, they will win, but Daley will pay the numerous Lawsuits off with TAXpayers dollars, not his own.
#5- He [Shortshanks] can contimnue his phony anti-gun crusade with the jitney Reverends, accomplish nothing s far as reducing the amount of Murders and Shootings in Chicago, and continue business as usual of blaming guns for all the Violence in Chi-Town, as if guns have a mind of their own.

Gun Ban is UNCONSTITUTIONAL.
Violation of your rights under the 2nd Amendment. Join NRA for legal representation for members.

Dumb hard head Mayor, using up the tax payers money only to lose in the end. Pay the Police, hire more Police with that money. If this goes to the Sepreme court the city will lose. He is paying 2.5 million to scumbags that shoot at the police and other stupid things like 2016. We the protectors of the city are lost in the shuffel.

Why should it be inconvenient? Right now it's damn near impossible to live in Chicago and even own a handgun - even if you never ever bring it into the city. People just won't sell to you.

The criminals still manage to get them. Every now and then I'm on here, and guess what? Another cop shot at. Now you know how we feel, only we can't shoot back! And besides, the criminals obviously aren't obeying the gun ban.

Look out though, if you listen to WBBM780, you will hear ads more and more for the Somethingsomething council to prevent handgun violence. Names like that alone make me furious. Why don't we call it car violence or alcohol violence or pencil stupidity or silverware obesity? Objects don't make people do bad things. I can't believe people actually stand behind some of these Communist assholes.

Gun control has killed more millions of people in the last century at the hands of governments than any other cause of death - why on EARTH are people so afraid of the objects which give the teeth to liberty? why is this city following in lockstep with such dangerous ideas?

It's a step by step process.

Every step is necessary, even those that appear to be steps backwards.

If you force the city's hand, they will just make it costly to own a weapon in the city. Force gun owners to carry say, a million or two liability insurance on their guns.

A legit citizen owning a handgun in the city in his home when he has a valid FOID card if he happens to use it is ONLY a non-jailable failure to register violation which is dumped in court overwhelmingly.
You won't get your gun back, but hey you stopped the home invader!
Not a bad investment in HOME SECURITY if you aSK ME.
GO BUY A NEW ONE!
