Re: Supreme Court Hears McDonald vs City of Chicago Case

It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. Lots of other Bill of Rights amendments have been incorporated over the years, and my gut is telling me that the NRA's going to win this one -- especially if you read the Heller decision. Heller already established precedent and the court's interpretation of the 2nd Amendment -- the Chicago argument is simply a landmark case to decide the incorporation issue.

I'm sure there will be more to come, though, as gun controllers work the fringes with thinks like licensing, taxation, and other restrictions.

I get a kick out of all the caterwauling from the Chicago chicken littles squawking about how dangerous it'll be if their gun ban is overturned. John Lott wrote a couple articles recently; one of them pointed out that in the year after Heller overturned D.C.'s ban, the murder rate in D.C. dropped 25 percent. Another showed how Chicago's crime rate skyrocketed in relation to outlying communities after it established its ban in 1982. Liberals just don't get it.

Instituting a gun ban anywhere is a. unconstitutional b. not good for the security of the united states.
