In Illinois, you have the right to keep and bear arms.....

But only inside your house? Did an Obama judge REALLY rule "No right to carry OUTSIDE the home"?
 We previously reported on Chicago's violation of it's citizens 2nd amendment rights and of the nearly $400,000.00 check that Chicago was ordered to right to reimburse the Second Amendment Foundation for it's legal fees. (See article here) Illinois, and Chicago in particular, along with DC have perhaps the most restrictive gun laws in the country. (No coincidence that they are Democrat strongholds).

and the battle continues....


FOLLOWING IS FROM THE DAILY CALLER

"Two pro-Second Amendment groups — the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) and Illinois Carry — filed a lawsuit last May challenging the ban on carrying concealed guns in the Land of Lincoln, which is the only state with a complete ban on the books. The common-sense basis for the lawsuit is that Illinois’ ban on concealed carry deprives citizens of the fundamental right of self-defense, simply because they are in public.

While Judge Myerscough conceded the Second Amendment protects a “general right to carry guns that include a right to carry operable guns in public,” she tossed out the lawsuit, claiming that the “Supreme Court has not recognized a right to bear firearms outside the home.”
As absurd as this federal judge’s ruling appears on the surface, it unfortunately finds some basis in the inchoate opinion issued four years ago by the nation’s high court in Heller. While the five-member majority in that case importantly recognized the fundamental right of an individual to keep and bear arms — and in so finding, invalidated the District’s restrictive gun control ordinance — the actual language of the opinion has been interpreted now to recognize the right to possess a firearm only inside one’s home."

How long till Boone jumps on the ban carrying anywhere but in your home bandwagon? If the libs stay in power after this election i say less then one year.

I think they are worried about a law suite if they go past the limits the state set up. They told the attorny to be as restrictive with the proposed park ban ordinance as he could be so they realize there are limits. The Boone council is not quite as much in lock step as it was.

However, you are correct in the fact they are still ultra liberal and operate on the premise everything is legal until challenged in court.

When Hussein Obama gets re-elected, which is going to happen, this type of nanny state activity will be the norm within a year like GIG says. If the people can't stop Hussein Obama through getting off their asses and voting, then they sure won't resist any overzealous lawmaking by the Messiah. America is apathetic.

Any liberal socialist sheep want to debate the merits of gun ownership?

Gun sales have already skyrocketed. People are getting edgy about another Hussein Obama term. We all know what will happen to our 2nd Amendment RIGHTS if that happens don't we. Those rights will cease to be rights.

I expect it to become nearly impossible to buy a semi-automatic weapon after about August (uninformed liberal socialists call these assault weapons).

I like the M4s by Lewis Tool and Machine Company as well as the excellant models produced by Daniel Defense. Apparently the Rock River models don't have the quality control that Lewis and Daniel do.

I still think we will have time to buy accurized bolt guns well into the future as most liberal socialist sheep don't realize the potential there. They will concentrate on semi-autos and then go after other models. What a bunch of idiots.

What frightens me the most about that video is, that our local politicians are probably drooling at the thought of that kind of regulation of firearms.
