Shocker: court rules that Chicago is part of the United States of America. #nra #2ndamendment

US Constitution:

Amendment II. A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.

Chicago Tribune:

A federal judge today declared Chicago’s ordinance banning the sale of firearms in the city unconstitutional.

In his 35-page ruling, U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang wrote that the city failed to persuade him that banning the sale of guns by licensed dealers was necessary to reduce gun violence that has plagued the city.

“Chicago’s ordinance 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 the ordinance tries to serve,” Chang wrote.

Hot Air:

Fun fact: The judge, Edmond Chang, is an Obama appointee.

That is fun, actually.  See? We’re not the only ones who get disappointed by judicial nominations…

    No promotion coming for Judge Chang anytime soon.

    Speaking of fun, if the Dems in control of Chicago and other rotting urban cores really wanted to stop gun crime, gun seizure squads would be on the streets by now.
    .
    Since when has any Dem used the 2nd Amendment for something other than a campaign slogan or bog roll?

    Wait. Chicago IS part of the United States? Can’t we give them to Canada? Or Mexico?
    .
    Or North Korea?
    .
    No, wait. On second thought, the poor Koreans are suffering enough.

    Legal disarmament is failing, watch for ideologically-minded bureaucrats in the FOID and CC processing chain to start “misplacing” paperwork at an increasing rate.
