    The NRA working for us

    The Seventh Circuit seems to think that we don't have a right to defend ourselves. Wonder how Sotomayor would vote on this one?

    NRA Appeals Seventh Circuit Ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court

    Fairfax, Va. - Today, the National Rifle Association filed a petition for certiorari to the U.S. Supreme Court in the case of NRA v. Chicago. The NRA strongly disagrees with yesterday's decision issued by a three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, holding that the Second Amendment does not apply to state and local governments.

    "The Seventh Circuit got it wrong. As the Supreme Court said in last year's landmark Heller decision, the Second Amendment is an individual right that 'belongs to all Americans'. Therefore, we are taking our case to the highest court in the land," said Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist. "The Seventh Circuit claimed it was bound by precedent from previous decisions. However, it should have followed the lead of the recent Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals decision in Nordyke v. Alameda County, which found that those cases don't prevent the Second Amendment from applying to the states through the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment."

    This Seventh Circuit opinion upholds current bans on the possession of handguns in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois.

    "It is wrong that the residents of Chicago and Oak Park continue to have their Second Amendment rights denied," Cox concluded. "It's time for the fundamental right of self-defense to be respected by every jurisdiction throughout our country."

    Good I hope they knock them down. This is why I am a NRA member.

    Fun fact though, I got my CCW permit faster than I have gotten my NRA membership card. I am guess because they are busy kicking ***. :D

    CCW = 1 week
    NRA = 3 weeks still waiting
