Click here for story: Chicago approves new handgun restrictions
“No Supreme Court judge could live in my community and come to the same conclusion they did a couple days ago,” Ald. Sharon Denise Dixon (24th) said.
Only an idiot would live in her community without a gun! If I lived in a rough area I would be even more in favor of allowing gun ownership BY LAW-ABIDING CITIZENS.
“I find it hard to believe that the Supreme Court justices that voted to strike our handgun laws have spent any time in the communities that many of us represent,” Ald. Toni Preckwinkle (4th) said. “There’s no way if they knew the violence our young people face every day that they could decide this was a reasonable course of action.”
See my response to the first idiot above. Please. Maybe your communities are so crime ridden because of the 28 years of banning handguns for the good guys!
Here is my favorite one though:
Gun rights activists point to statistics showing that jurisdictions that allow people to keep guns in their homes see drops in violent crime. But the aldermen unanimously rejected that claim, saying experts who testified before City Council committees this week convinced them that statistic is flawed.
“If people bothered to read as opposed to getting their news from the ‘Tea Party Times,’ they would understand and see that there is more harm done by the proliferation of handguns than there is benefit,” said Ald. Freddrenna Lyle (8th).
Freddenna Lyle sounds as ignorant as they come. You see Freddenna 'Tea Party Times' isn't where we read about the crime rate dropping in jurisdictions that allow private gun ownership. Actual crime statistics are where we read that. Of course, Freddenna, you wouldn't know that because you go to 'The Brady Center Times' for your gun news. Idiot.
The SCOTUS will slap these new regulations around as well. These just fly in the face of the court's ruling earlier this week.
Since Freddenna probably can't read, let me illustrate it for her:
