NRA vs. Chicago

The conflict in Chicago right now is huge. Chicago is imposing a handgun ban. The same type of ban that the U.S. supreme court deemed unconstitutional in D.C. What they are basically saying is that the Second Amendment doesn’t apply to them and they have the right to twist, bend, and change its meaning. While most people think this is a victory for anti-gun backers, it is a defeat for our U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, and the American people. Once local governments are allowed start picking and choosing which articles of the Bill of Rights they wish to obey, when will it end? Will freedom of speech be the next to go? Get involved people.

I’m glad 2/3 of the attorney generals in the U.S. see what is happening and are willing to take the steps to make it right.

A quote from the NRA:

Two-thirds of the nation’s attorneys general have filed an amicus brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to grant certiorari in the case of NRA v. Chicago and hold that the Second Amendment applies to state and local governments through the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. This bi-partisan group of 33 attorneys general, along with the Attorney General of California in a separate filing, agrees with the NRA’s position that the Second Amendment protects a fundamental individual right to keep and bear arms, disagreeing with the decision recently issued by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit.

My letter to Florida’s Attorney General, Bill McCollum:

Thank you for signing, along with 32 other attorney generals, an amicus brief supporting second amendment incorporation in the case of NRA vs. Chicago.
