Default Chicago Law Banning Handguns in City Upheld by Court


Chicago Law Banning Handguns in City Upheld by Court
— A Chicago ordinance banning handguns and automatic weapons within city limits was upheld by a U.S. Court of Appeals panel, which rejected a challenge by the National Rifle Association.

The unanimous three-judge panel ruled today that a U.S. Supreme Court decision last year, which recognized an individual right to bear arms under the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment, didn’t apply to states and municipalities.

“The Supreme Court has rebuffed requests to apply the second amendment to the states,” U.S. Circuit Judge Frank Easterbrook wrote, upholding lower court decisions last year to throw out suits against Chicago and its suburb of Oak Park, Illinois.

NRA’s latest gun control scheme HR 2640. They are now traitiors to America


If you support the 2nd Amendment you must pull your membership out of the NRA as they have betrayed American Gun Owners on more than one occasion, the Veterans Disarmament Bill of 2007 and their support for the extension of the assault weapon ban.

HB 2853, a bill to force Oregon into compliance with the Brady Campaign/NRA sponsored gun control bill, HR 2640, passed out of the House Rules Committee today.

Only one member of the committee,Bill Garrard, voted no.

Federal Court Says States Can Regulate Guns
A federal appeals court in Chicago ruled today that the Second Amendment doesn’t bar state or local governments from regulating guns, adopting the same position that Judge Sonia Sotomayor, President Barack Obama’s nominee to the Supreme Court, did when faced with the same question earlier this year.

Last year, the U.S. Supreme Court cited the Second Amendment to strike down a handgun ban adopted in 1976 by the Washington, D.C., City Council. The court, by a 5-4 vote, found that the amendment protected from federal infringement an individual right to “keep and bear arms.”
