Evil Second Amendment restored in Chicago

Font Size:

Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country, and is therefore one of the safest cities in the country. Gun crimes are practically nonexistent. But once again, Utopia has been thwarted by the stupid Constitution and its meddling adherents.

Kim Janssen, Chicago Sun-Times:

Gun dealers can set up shop in Chicago, a federal judge has ruled — declaring the city’s ban on firearms sales unconstitutional.

U.S. District Court Judge Edmond E. Chang wrote in a 35-page opinion published Monday that Chicago’s 2010 ordinance banning gun sales within city limits “goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and legal dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms…”

The ruling is the latest in a series of legal blows to the city’s efforts to restrict gun ownership since the Supreme Court in 2010 ruled Chicago’s handgun ban unconstitutional.

Makes sense to me. Just because you have the right to bear arms doesn’t mean you have the right to buy them. Now that it’s legal to sell scary guns in Chicago again, people will run around shooting each other all the time!

More guns = more crime, everybody knows that. Just look at the White House. It’s the safest place around, now that they’ve gotten rid of all those deadly, deadly guns.

Shame on you, U.S. District Court Judge Edmond E. Chang. When Chicago’s murder rate skyrockets, when law-abiding citizens aren’t safe to leave their homes at night, when the streets run red with blood… it’ll be on your head.
