Supreme Court’s Decision On Chicago’s Gun Ban Is Due This Month
Washington, DC—On any Monday this month, the legitimacy of Chicago’s 30 year-old gun ban will the courts issue. Legal experts overwhelming agree that in view of the earlier Heller case, Mayor Richard M. Daley’s favorite law is doomed.
Otis McDonald, pictured above and several other Chicago residents have sought help from the National Rifle association and The Second Amendment Foundation in getting their stolen gun rights returned.
Gun control has been finally exposed as a massive failure that has only facilitated and enabled violent criminals.
The issue for the court is not whether gun control is effective, good public policy or ineffective. It’s simply about whether our founding fathers meant it when they decreed that, “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
The silly argument that this was a collective right of state government not the people is now just so much, bogus revisionist history. Government always had the right and duty to keep arms.
The days of Chicago’s politicians protecting robbers, rapists, and killers may well be over for good. Perhaps we will see gun stores in the Windy City again and concealed carry permits for the law-abiding may be a reality here too. Chicago’s thugs won’t be very happen about that.
Mayor Daley will soon have his massive heart attack and we will all move on.
