    Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Chicago Gun Ban

    Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Chicago Gun Ban

    Local Plaintiffs Will Be Present For Arguments In McDonald v.Chicago

    As they hear arguments in a case to against Chicago's nearly 30-year-old handgun ban, the U.S. Supreme Court appears willing to say that the Constitution's right to possess guns limits state and local regulation of firearms.
    U.S. Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Chicago Handgun Ban - cbs2chicago.com

    Says the mayor and the other anti-gun loons:

    "We have the right for health and safety to pass reasonable laws dealing with the protection and health of the people of the city of Chicago," Daley said.
    So... what -is- the argument against the incorpration of the 2nd against the actions of the states, and how is it sound, given current jurisprudence regarding same?

    It's actually really ****ing complicated, and is made worse by the fact that some supporters of the ban are advancing some of the same arguments that opponents are advancing and vice versa. There are probably a dozen ways that this decision could come out. If you want a detailed discussion of the different issues, this is a fairly comprehensive roundup: McDonald v. City of Chicago - ScotusWiki

    According to SCOTUSBlog, we're probably going to avoid most of that, as the court is just going to use Due Process rather than revisit the Privileges and Immunities issue:

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed poised to require state and local governments to obey the Second Amendment guarantee of a personal right to a gun, but with perhaps considerable authority to regulate that right. The dominant sentiment on the Court was to extend the Amendment beyond the federal level, based on the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of “due process,” since doing so through another part of the 14th Amendment would raise too many questions about what other rights might emerge.

    What pisses me off is that not only are they taking my right to own a gun away, but they are also taking my money away in order to defend their right to take my right to own a gun away.

    The quotes from these douchebags (Daley et al) in this article are absurd.

    Re: Supreme Court Hears Arguments On Chicago Gun Ban

    Does anyone know what law banned the open carrying of fire arms? I'm just wondering why we can't walk the streets with a 6 shooter (or 2 or more) strapped to our waist. Why can't we ride a horse (or vehicle) into town with a 30-30 on your shoulder...

    Its perfectly legal in Kentucky to openly carry a firearm. To carry concealed requires a permit.

    In Ohio, open carry is legal.

    Doesn't the removal of rights thru 'due process' necessitate some sort of criminal act on the part of the individual who has his right removed?

    Seems to me that, if not, any and every right can be Constitutionally removed by simple legislation.
