So a federal judge says to Chicago that it is not kosher to ban the sale of a constitutionally protected item and the Opposition losses it.
Chicago Elders went too far and got properly slapped. You cannot go in front of a judge, and simply say that even though you know that guns are constitutional protected and banning them is illegal, you can play silly games by not allowing their sale. It would be like saying that books are constitutionally protected, but banning bookstores, libraries and newspaper kiosks is legal.
Moms and Mayor Rahm Emanuel made a loud statement that Chicago last year had its lowest murder stats in 40 years. They are proud of achieving what other cities and states have done already decades ago with gun rights and even civilians <gasp!> carrying guns with them everywhere, so basically they just managed to get to the Prom after everybody has paired up and are preparing to go into more entertaining exchanges.
The judge stayed the decision since the EMTs of the City of Chicago Whaaambulance are planning to appeal. I don’t like to make predictions, specially in that geographic area, but after Heller & McDonald, I really don’t see upper courts reversing the verdict.
And a note to all Gun Control groups, please stop saying stuff like the following from the Moms Demand Press Release:
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is shocked that in a densely populated city struggling to keep children safe from gunfire, the court has dealt a serious blow to public safety by essentially encouraging more citizens to arm themselves.
When you insinuate that your fellow citizens of a particular locale are too stupid/dumb/untrustworthy and/or as criminal as violent felons, you might be insulting them and counterproductive to your cause.
On second thought, go ahead and keep doing it.
