Today the Anti-Gun supporters took another hit.  A judge has ruled Chicago's ban on gun sales in city limits Unconstitutional.  I'm glad to see this happen.  Maybe now that people are allowed to defend themselves in Chicago, thugs will think twice and gun crime will decline.

Quote

U.S. District Judge Edmond E. Chang said in his ruling that while the government has a duty to protect its citizens, it's also obligated to protect constitutional rights, including the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. However, Chang said he would temporarily stay the effects of his ruling, meaning the ordinances can stand while the city decides whether to appeal.

You being from Michigan I can see why your pro gun ( im middle of the road on the issue myself ). Can I ask, is it also a right to carry around a ninja katana or a switch blade, maybe even an ice pick or brass knuckels.

We'd probably find out, but some higher level Federal Judge will be Progressive enough to overturn it. And then the SCotUS will refuse to hear the case and it will be business (gangs killing a half dozen people per week) all over again.

To be fair, most Chicago shootings.... killings.... occur on the street from Driveby shootings. Or, so the statistics would indicate. So probably personnal gun ownership would not drop the rates of this cultural problem much.

The Federal Government should build a gigantic prison facility in Alaska and just transport all prisoners there and let them freeze their biscuits off. Maybe have it like 150 miles from the closest town so whoever escapes just freezes to death. Then have them farm their own vegies and chickens. Make them work for their food. No TV. This is supposed to be Punishment after all, and they have it easier then a grounded teenager.

I wonder what a gangster gets for a plea bargain from Murder these days.... 5... 6 years with "good" behavior? Maybe less due to crowding and financial cutbacks.

I was happy to hear of the ruling simply because what all these gun laws are doing is unconstitutional.  Gangs will always be around.

Is it too much that you re-read my initial response? You've started three pro-gun threads in the Western Hemisphere forum in 3 days.

Isn't one thread enough?
