The Second Amendment in Chicago

Yesterday, the 7th circuit Court of Appeals upheld a handgun ban in Chicago and neighboring Oak Park. Their reason? The Second Amendment is not adequate basis for filing lawsuits. HUH??

This just makes me crazy. The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that local handgun bans are unconstitutional, but a little thing like the Constitution doesn't seem to matter to the Handgun Control, Inc. crowd. And isn't it just a little ironic that this all came from Barry's home state and beloved city? Could it be a subliminal message being put out there? Who knows.

The Second Amendment was put in place to allow law-abiding citizens the right to protect themselves against oppression and tyranny. Without the Second Amendment, we can't defend the others. That's why Hitler disarmed the citizenry. He didn't have much trouble taking over then, did he?

And let's look at the Windy City. I've never been there, but from what I've been told by people who have, there are certain sections of town and certain times of night that you would not want to be out on the streets. I wonder how the gun grabbers would feel if they were to encounter a little gang banger on the street pointing a Glock in their faces. Do you think that they would continue to believe that gun was obtained legally? Oh, they probably would.

Of course, it would all be due to how misunderstood the youth of today are. Misunderstood? Give me a break! Most parents today have no spine. If my mother had gotten a call from jail when I was 11 and 12 years old, I'd have been begging the cops to keep me there. Today's kids (and some parents) don't care. To them, getting busted for armed robbery or killing a rival gang member is a badge of honor. This is what years of liberal programs have done.

If I'm walking down the street and some punk decides to mess with me or my family, I hope he feels lucky. He'll meet my little friend.

I always packed when I lived in Chicago. I went through some really bad neighborhoods.
