Saw this little tidbit in the news, and I thought of all the gun-hating Liberals on OPP whose mornings I could ruin.....







Fairfax, Va. – The United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois has ordered the City of Chicago to reimburse $940,000 in legal expenses incurred by the NRA. The NRA had challenged Chicago’s ban on gun sales within city limits in Benson v. City of Chicago. The Benson case was consolidated into Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers v. City of Chicago and that case challenged five aspects of Chicago’s law: (1) the ban on any form of carriage; (2) the ban on gun stores; (3) the ban on firing ranges; (4) the ban on self-defense in garages, porches, and yards; and (5) the ban on keeping more than one gun in an operable state.

This is the second time that the City of Chicago has been ordered to reimburse legal fees in a suit sponsored by the NRA. The first was following the U.S. Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago in which Chicago was ordered to reimburse the NRA more than $600,000.

Add the two judgments together, and the City of Chicago now owes the NRA more than $1.5 million

I just think it's amazing that the City of Chicago keeps doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Isn't that the definition of insanity???

It's obvious gun control cannot and does not work. It's time for the city to allow legal open carry and run those gangs out of town.

It is definitely one form

I wonder how long it will take Chicago to pay the judgments to the NRA...before or after bankruptcy?

That is a tough question, maybe Rahm Emanuel can ask Obama for a tax free loan and help his old home town out with a paltry 1.5 million, should be no problem.
