Re: Boutique" Gun Store?
How many lawsuits will it take for the political leaders in Chicago (or anywhere else) to see that they are denying American citizens of their rights? How much taxpayer money are they willing to spend on legal fees to defend their tyranical laws? How much longer will they continue to burden an already over-burdened court system with their Draconian laws just to prove a point that has already been proven that they are wrong? But the REAL question is: How much longer will the citizens of Chicago (or anywhere else) continue to allow their elected leaders to squander their taxes, deny them of their rights, and over burden their court system before they run them out of office?
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man. Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774_1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764
