PostSubject: Chicagoans Challenge New City Gun Law   Mon Jul 12, 2010 4:28 am


With NRA Support, Chicagoans Challenge New City Gun Law


Friday, July 09, 2010

Barely a week after the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago, NRA is supporting a new lawsuit—Benson v. City of Chicago—to enforce the court's decision. The suit, filed on July 6 against the city and its mayor, Richard Daley, is the first to challenge the city's new gun control ordinance passed on July 2 (please see related story from last week's Grassroots Alert here).
Just four days after the Court struck down the nearly 30 year-long handgun bans in the cities of Chicago and Oak Park, Chicago enacted one of the most restrictive anti-gun ordinances in the United States. Commenting on the scope of the new ordinance, Corporation Counsel Mara Georges, the top attorney for the city, said, "We've gone farther than anyone else ever has."
The city's so-called "Responsible Gun Ownership Ordinance" provisions include: a ban on all gun sales in the city; a ban on possession of firearms for self-defense outside the "home"—even on a patio or in an attached garage; a ban on having more than one assembled and operable firearm in the home; a provision that allows the Chicago police to arbitrarily ban "unsafe" handguns based on unlimited criteria; and a training requirement to obtain a Chicago Firearm Permit. (However, range training would be impossible since it will now be unlawful to operate a shooting range within city limits.)
Challenging the provisions are a number of gun owners and would-be gun owners in Chicago, along with the Illinois Association of Firearms Retailers—a trade association that includes members who would open gun stores and shooting ranges in the city, if not for the restrictive new law.
Commenting on the need for the lawsuit, NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre said, "The Supreme Court has now said the Second Amendment is an individual freedom for all. And that must have meaning. This decision cannot lead to different measures of freedom, depending on what part of the country you live in. City by city, person by person, this decision must be more than a philosophical victory. An individual right is no right at all if individuals can't access it."
"The Supreme Court told Mayor Daley and the City of Chicago that it has to respect the Second Amendment. By enacting this ordinance, their response is 'Make Us'," added NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. "The NRA will not rest until Chicago's law-abiding residents can exercise the same freedoms that our Founding Fathers intended all Americans to have."
Recent statements by Chicago officials reflect their contempt for the Supreme Court decision. Alderman Daniel Solis stated, "the decision made by the Supreme Court is not really in the best interests of our citizens." Alderman Sharon Denise Dixon denounced what she called the Court's "blatant… misreading of the law." And another city council member even went so far as to say, "We're here today because of their poor judgment."
Benson v. City of Chicago was filed by lead counsel Charles J. Cooper and his colleagues in the Washington, D.C. firm of Cooper & Kirk. One of the nation's premier litigation firms, Cooper & Kirk has represented NRA in major constitutional litigation for many years.

Daly knows that he's swimming upstream and yet he continues to keep everybody in Chicago focused on his pranks. Doesn't it make you wonder why he's inciting people to to be so focused on the gun issue.
I want to know what he's up to in the back ground that he's creating this huge diversion. Daly is the crook's crook in politics in Ill.
I don't buy what he's selling, what's really going on, something else is happening.

Masters at is more like it. I know there are a lot of morons in this country. But I can't help but feel that all the people that vote left CAN'T really be that stupid. And that some percentage are misdirected for lack of knowledge of current events.
True they should be keeping up with things because it is their freedoms that are being lost too. But some people can't see the importance of it all over their daily problems.

Much like when they are against a wall they always pull out the race card.
They know they are going to be hit hard in November, as pay beck for crapping on the country.
And they are running around calling any one or any group that does not agree with them racist.

They are nuts, with loose screws and to many tools in the box to find what they need.

All they see is more and more entitlements they might be receiving and they never stop to figure where the entitlements are going to come from. I never cease to be amazed! I thought we as a people were smarter than that. Maybe not!

What he says.

They forget. The larger the list of people dependent on government money the smaller the taxpaying base is.
Somewhere there comes a tipping point where even if you were taxing 100% of the working income you could not cover the expenses.
Currently the total tax rate is above 33% I believe somewhere closer to 40. And the government can't spend it fast enough. And most of the shit they spend it on is, giving it away to other countries that will never pay a penny of it back.

I know we have covered this before but it just aggravates me that we are bankrupt as a country and these ass holes keep spending more money that we just don't have.

Socialism works great until you run out of the other guy's money! I think it was Margaret Thatcher that came up with that one. Unfortunately that is so true. When there are more drawing from the gov teat than there are paying in, it will go down fast and we are not far from there.

Today I drove by a new "Fire Station" being built about 3 miles from our home and they had a huge billboard posted on the site proclaiming it as one BO's projects to stimulate the economy.

Here's my view:
1. We have an existing fire station half way between our home and the new one. We don't need another one.
2. Who'll staff it? Our Township is not able to meet it's budget already.

So here it is, WE built a new fire station the he's taking credit for to falsely stimulate the economy and next who's going to pay to hire and train more firemen that aren't needed?

The situation meets my criteria for insanity. I cannot friggin' believe it!!!!!!!!!!

Spend! Spend! Spend! As long as you are spending the other person's money it works great. What is going to happen when there are no others to spend their money? That is what I worry about!

If these jokers are not put in check, I see a change in the Nation.
States leaving the union. And two maybe three come to mind. At a point states are going to get tired of Obama and his cohorts in crime. And will just leave the union. I have seen people say that is not possible or legal.

I say anything is possible and as for legal. Obama has set the precedence for things illegal.
The Free people of a Free State in a Free Country have the right to leave said Country if that Country comes under tyranny control.
The US is now under tyranny control and ALL states have the GOD given right to self preservation. From enemies within and without. We are currently getting it from both sides.

I think TX will reach a point where the Texans will stand up and say enough! Don't know how far it would go but I can tell you there is a growing sentiment that expresses exactly what you are talking about. Rebirth, secession or whatever you want to call it, there will be a day within our lifetime where the people have had enough of this as they had enough in the mid to late 1700's when they stood up and broke from the tyrannical rule of England. Government growing beyond control, taking more and more of what the people have worked hard for and giving little if nothing in return for it other than spending it with no restraint and certainly no respect. That is exactly the road we are heading down! I am sure England had the same attitude that it could not happen.

AO,
Our government IS out of control and, it's a problem with no solution. It took over 200 years for it to evolve to where it is today and I believe we need a military oriented government to protect us from what's on the horizon. Our government behaves as it did 200 years ago, they don't look at the future. If they did we wouldn't have had 9/11.

Totally agree that it is out of control. However, there is always a solution of some kind. Everyone will probably not be happy with the solution but there will be something that happens and will cause the ones of us that are tired of being overtaxed, overburdened and generally dumped on to stand up and say no more. When it comes to a screeching halt, watch the rats abandon ship as there will be no more entitlements, freebies and graft available for them to live on (our tax money) and it will happen. Just a matter of time and the way it looks it may be sooner than later!

Did you see the story about a small town in CA (where else) where one city official was taking home almost $1,000,000 a year? All the rest of his cronies were making about a half mil a year, the Sheriff was one of them.

Man I wish I could have gotten in on that. When I worked for the SO I drew $24K per year with my insurance paid, not my family's! I don't know how we made ends meet at that with three kids. Those were some of the best years we have ever had and I guess we were just too dumb to know any better! To pay that kind of money for the personal services of a certified peace officer or any kind of public servant is just ludicrous! I can't imagine that going on with the audits and watchdogs out there. Amazing!!!!
