Federal judge rules ban on Chicago gun sales and transfers unconstitutionalA federal judge ruled Monday that Chicago's ban on virtually all sales and transfers of firearms is unconstitutional."The stark reality facing the City each year is thousands of shooting victims and hundreds of murders committed with a gun. But on the other side of this case is another feature of government: certain fundamental rights are protected by the Constitution, put outside government's reach, including the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense under the Second Amendment," wrote U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang."Chicago's ordinance goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and legal dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms," he continued.Chang explicitly did not rule out other types of regulation, short of a complete ban, in order to "minimize the access of criminals to firearms and to track the ownership of firearms."But the flat ban on legitimate sales and transfers does not fit closely with those goals," Chang wrote.

Baby steps I guess. People and government don't realize is that the constitution is ment to limit government. Not put limits on us. The things listed in the bill of rights are meant to be basic human god given rights. People act as if the government is granting those to us and we should be grateful for even that.
There shouldn't be any question about these laws. Every single law that infringes on the 2nd amendment should be thrown out.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

You can be the weapon, and the gun in your hand is a tool - or the gun is a weapon and you are the tool.
