Chicago AGAIN Restricts Citizens' 2nd Amendment Rights Four Days After SCOTUS Decsion
So after the Supreme Court just invalidated the draconian hand gun ban in Chicago and specifically stated that its residents had a right to own hand guns, Chicago has flaunted the decision by further restricting citizens’ second amendment Constitutional rights. This is a fact of which the city of Chicago seems to be very proud as the top attorney for the city, Mara Georges, stated “We’ve gone farther than anyone else ever has.” The zealous curtailing of our rights should be a source of shame for these people rather than a celebratory moment. Evidently it is only acceptable that the criminal class should be able to be armed in the city of Chicago.
Luckily, the National Rifle Association has already filed suit on July 6th against the City of Chicago and its mayor, Richard Daley, in Benson v. City of Chicago in order to enforce the Supreme Court’s decision already made in the McDonald v. City of Chicago case. It would seem that the burden of this is with the city of Chicago, as the SCOTUS has already in essence ruled to this effect that the city of Chicago is in violation of Constitutional law.
It is a sad that the mayor and city council of Chicago see fit to ignore such Constitutional rulings. If the good citizens don’t vote to remove these freedom stealing bureaucrats from office, the federal government should step in to ensure that the Supreme Court’s decision on the peoples’ rights to arm themselves is protected and enforced accordingly. Of course, under President Obama’s administration and with his current attorney general, Eric Holder, at the helm of ensuring such laws are enforced, I would not expect to see this done until a new administration is sworn into office in January of 2013. Hope and change, folks!
