Chicago, IL—The U.S. Supreme Court’s opinions in the Heller and McDonald matters will bury Mayor Richard M.Daley and other Chicago officials under litigation.
For some 28 years Chicago’s politicians violated the civil rights of citizens to keep and bear arms for lawful self-defense. Many people were arrested for being in possession of guns city officials banned. Their firearms were confiscated and ordered destroyed by local courts that marked the victims with a criminal record.
Many people were denied employment because of the criminal record they were branded with for engaging in constitutionally protected activity. In addition these people sat in jail cells, paid for bail and legal fees. Some people even had their automobiles confiscated. There were other factors too numerous to mention here that were simple punishment that was unlawfully administered.
A class action federal lawsuit was filed, Second Amendment Arms, et al. vs City of Chicago, et al. seeking compensation for those victimized by Chicago’s politicians. The fun part is that those responsible and named individually as well as in the official capacities. Perhaps these despots can be bankrupted for their transgressions.
Can the city afford the continuation of violating the gun rights of people that will be able to sue for every arrest over the possession and carrying of firearms? Yes, I said carrying since the court held that the people have the right not just to keep arms but to bear them as well.
