Federal judge rules Chicago ban on handgun sales unconstitutional

    I hadn’t even heard that Chicago passed a ban on handgun sales. Sadly, the judge gave the city a stay, which just gives them time to gin up something else unconstitutional and drag out the process for years to come.

    If I recall, that state’s new carry law also has a preemption section. And while some of Chicago’s gun laws were grandfathered, new ones will run into trouble.

    That doesn’t mean the Chicago machine won’t try again, but it does mean defeating it in court would be simpler.

    Obama is from Chicago. That does not help the city’s reputation either.

    Meh. We’ve been dealing with it for at least forty years. At least that’s the last time I remember seeing guns and ammunition at Sears or KMart and even then it was only long guns. We just cross the city line to the suburban gun shops. Real close. You can even take the CTA to some and just cross the street. 😉

    What’s interesting in Illinois is that schools have to put up the statutory No Guns sign, same as businesses, if they don’t want parents to bring their guns into the school. The soccer moms will hold their breaths and turn blue and force the schools to do it, but it’s still better than a blanket ban.

    BTW, to correct a “minor” ommission from your blog, we have had the 50th anniversary of the film “Zulu”.
    I’ve watched this, free on Youtube, several times. One of the very few movies I’ve seen as much.
    “And introducing Michael Caine” – staggeringly good British actor who went on to perform in over 100 films? Awesome performance, and little wonder. He really was that good.
    BTW, don’t mind the half-naked maidens at the intro, that’s just how the Zulu’s did things in the 19th century. So, how could 140 British soldiers defeat 4,000 Zulu warriors bent on killing them? Watch.

    But Bob, Obama is EXEMPT from the anti-gun laws. He’s surrounded by and protected by guns when he is in Chicago even as he works to take from others what he keeps for himself.
