Second Ammendment wins.

Damn, I canít believe I missed this:

Court Overturns DC Handgun Ban

A U.S. appeals court on Friday struck down a 30-year-old Washington, D.C., law that bans handguns in homes, a precedent-setting ruling that dealt a setback to a city with one of America's highest crime rates.

By a 2-1 vote, the appeals court broadly interpreted an individual's constitutional right under the Second Amendment to bear arms, and concluded the law violated those rights.

Hey, maybe things are starting to swing our way! Go over and read the rest if you are interested in how the courts may be positioning on similar bans. I wonder how this will affect Chicago?

You're the first person I thought of when I saw that headline the other day. I nearly emailed you, but then I got a phone call... end of any train of thought...

I think this bodes well for you in IL. At the very least, there is precedent if the nannies push things past the preliminary stages.

Never thought I'd see the words, "Second Amendment Wins" together like this! ESPECIALLY in DC!

I hope it bodes well for us here. If only IL wasn't considered a suburb of Chicago...
