Rahm Loses Again
- People younger than 18 have a Second Amendment right to target practice, with adult supervision. Broad bans on the location of firing ranges are unconstitutional. On these points, all three judges of a 7th Circuit panel agree, in the newly decided Ezell II.
Released Wednesday, Ezell II held that:
Chicago may not prohibit all persons under 18 from entering licensed firing ranges.
Chicago may not constrict firing ranges to a tiny sliver of the city.
The opinion of the court was written by Judge Diane Sykes, joined by Judge Michael Kanne. Judge Ilana Rovner concurred in part and dissented in part. She agreed with the above two points but construed them more narrowly than did the majority.
And no doubt, Rahm will be sending another chunk of taxpayer money to Alan Gura and David Sigale, who represented the plaintiffs in this case, for yet another classic overreach.
