    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."

    Regulations do NOT EVER "protect our citizens". Moreover, they increasingly force citizens into criminal behavior to protect ...themselves!

    Yeah. I'd like to see Mr Emanuel point to one, just one, case where the strict regulations protected a person. Where the cops actually stopped a person from being harmed.

    The only common sense gun legislation was written about 224 years ago.

    I carry always not because I go places trouble is likely, but because trouble has a habit of not staying in its assigned zone.

    Rahm Emmanuel lives in a delusional world. He is a hard-core anti-freedom extremist.

    Good for Judge Chang!

    and what progress would that be there Rahmmie? .....you flaming jack-headed moron.

    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."

    Chicago's murder rate has declined to the lowest rate since 1965. In Chicago's case it seems that having a competent superintendent of police made the difference. Be careful, if murder rate increases after this decision, it will be easy to point out that gun sales is the culprit.

    The numbers already speak for themselves. Look at Chicago compared to Houston in the Fox article. And still no person can figure it out! Not even a Judge can see the numbers or speak up for them. Just trying to figure out the proper wording for putting another knot in the noose. Job security?

    It does seem that way, doesn't it?

    I mean, particularly given the twin facts that nearly all violent felons don't follow any of the crap anyway, and nearly all upstanding folk aren't a threat to others, choosing the path of liberty and constitutionality can't hardly be any worse than the morass we've got now. Unjustifiable infringements, co-opting of the courts, politicizing to within an inch of our lives, legal actions that keep far too many lawyers eating steak, and all the rest. Scrap it all, and sleep better, knowing for a fact we're better off. Absolutely.

    Hell, while we're at it, once we've seen the vast majority of any "blood running in the streets" is that of the felons we can't seem to get rid of, declare open season on 'em all. They've declared open season on the upstanding. Turning the tables (a la Coffeyville Kansas' approach to ridding the town of vermin) might well be the best thing we could do. Better and more sensible, by far, than jumping on the heads of every two-bit upstanding citizen we can find.

    Chicago takes a weird form of logic.... and makes it so extreme only an idiot would buy into it.

    It's like making a law against having or owning a shovel, and then arguing that way ... no one will ever die.... because no one can dig the grave.

    With any luck these holdout heathen zones will be looked at in a few decades with the same contempt as the southern states that refused to drop their racial segregation laws in the 1950s.
