    Good: Federal judge shoots down Chicago gun sales ban

    Federal judge shoots down Chicago gun sales ban | Fox News

    New article regarding the judges ruling on Chicago's gun sale ban. I liked his decision saying that their gun ban and correlation with reduced violent crime as being hokey. Also liked the correlation between Houston's violent crime vs Chicago's being of similar population but one having CC laws and one not.

    For his part, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a statement, "I am pleased the court granted our request for a six-month delay to allow time to adopt a municipal ordinance regulating firearm sales in Chicago.

    "Our goal is to create the strictest regulations that protect our residents and also comply with the court order without undermining the progress we have made in reducing violent crime throughout our city."
    That is some mighty STRONG KOOK-AID

    This will get locked or moved, but it's always nice to see a federal judge with some smarts.

    This isn't a story of self defense, therefor does not belong here. Feel free to repost in the 2a or general firearms sub forum.
