NRA Files Second Amendment Lawsuits In Illinois And California Following Supreme Court Ruling

Friday, June 27, 2008

Following up on yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling that the Second Amendment protects a private right to possess firearms that is not limited to militia service, the NRA today filed five lawsuits challenging local gun bans in San Francisco, and in Chicago and several of its suburbs.

“The Supreme Court held yesterday that the Second Amendment right is exercised individually and belongs to all Americans,” said NRA-ILA Executive Director Chris W. Cox. “These lawsuits will ensure that state and local governments hear those words.”

The San Francisco lawsuit challenges a local ordinance and lease provisions that prohibit possession of guns by residents of public housing in San Francisco. NRA is joined in that suit by the California Rifle and Pistol Association and the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.

The Chicago case challenges a handgun ban nearly identical to the law struck down yesterday in Washington, D.C. The other Illinois suits challenge handgun bans in the suburban towns of Evanston, Morton Grove, and Oak Park. ... px?id=4053

I am glad that we have a private orginization that is at work for all of us. Not just its members. I encourage all of you to join the N.R.A. as soon as possible and remember why you joined in November.

Everything else aside, our civil rights are what makes the United States what it is. Politicans that do not see that are a huge threat to our way of life.

Look at the machine politicans that we have in Illinois. The Supreme Court has made a decision about the 2nd. Our politicans have decided that the highest court is wrong and that they do not have to follow the U.S. Constitution. Essentiallty, we will be paying for our own oppression with real money, not just blood and sweat. You gotta love Democrats.

Its amazing how many people who are gun owners and don't recognize all that the NRA does for us. If you hunt and you don't contribute to the NRA, shame on you. You don't have to agree with all the tactics they use to get their point across, but the point MUST be made.
