Chicago’s Gun Sales Laws Struck Down As Unconstitutional
Finally, someone standing up for the Constitution and the people turned into unarmed victims thanks to Chicago’s gun-grabbing liberal politicians
(Fox News) A federal judge on Monday overturned Chicago’s ban on the sale and transfer of firearms, ruling that the city’s ordinances aimed at reducing gun violence are unconstitutional.
U.S. District Judge Edmond E. Chang said in his ruling that while the government has a duty to protect its citizens, it’s also obligated to protect constitutional rights, including the right to keep and bear arms for self-defense. However, Chang said he would temporarily stay the effects of his ruling, meaning the ordinances can stand while the city decides whether to appeal.
Chang wrote that the nation’s third-largest city “goes too far in outright banning legal buyers and legal dealers from engaging in lawful acquisitions and lawful sales of firearms, and at the same time the evidence does not support that the complete ban sufficiently furthers the purposes that the ordinance tries to serve.”
The only down side is that Judge Chang put a temporary stay on the order to give the city time to respond. And, certainly, Chicago will do all it can to make sure the law abiding citizens continue to be victims to those criminal elements who really do not care about laws.
