I think a lot of our rights have been infringed on since 9-11, specifically warrantless searches. But don't you think any gun legislation will be over turned by the supreme court?
Again ask the people of Illinois how long they lived under a law banning their right to own a gun..
It was just recently deemed unconstitutional..
By the late 1980s, several Illinois municipalities had banned the possession of handguns. Chicago required the registration of all firearms but did not allow handguns to be registered, which had the effect of outlawing their possession, unless they were grandfathered in by being registered before April 16, 1982. Additionally, several Chicago suburbs had enacted outright prohibitions on handgun possession.
On June 26, 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down Washington, D.C.'s handgun ban in the case of District of Columbia v. Heller. Chicago and the other municipalities came under legal pressure to change their laws. In the months following the Heller decision, handgun bans were repealed in the suburbs of Wilmette,Morton Grove,Evanston, and Winnetka, but Chicago and Oak Park kept their laws in effect.
On June 28, 2010, in the case of McDonald v. Chicago, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the handgun bans of Chicago and Oak Park to be unconstitutional.
On July 12, 2010 a new Chicago city ordinance took effect that allows limited handgun possession after passing a firearms training course and obtaining a permit from the police. Chicago's gun registration requirement is still in effect.
On July 19, 2010 Oak Park amended its town ordinance to allow handgun possession in one's home, leaving no remaining town in Illinois that completely bans handguns.
President Coolidge delivered this speech on the 150th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Rejecting Progressivism root and branch, he defends America’s founding principles.
July 5, 1926
"If no one is to be accounted as born into a superior station, if there is to be no ruling class, and if all possess rights which can neither be bartered away nor taken from them by any earthly power, it follows as a matter of course that the practical authority of the Government has to rest on the consent of the governed."
I actually think I am more dangerous legally driving my truck,, than I am with a gun,,, legal or not!!
