Illinois Gun Law Struck Down

For the umpteenth time a federal court has had to bitch-slap liberals over guns.  Illinois was the only state to try to ban concealed weapons.  Chicago's 7th Circuit has struck down the ill-conceived law.

"We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home," Judge Richard Posner wrote.

"The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside. The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense," Posner continued.

The state wants to single out guns as a public safety hazard conveniently ignoring the obvious safety hazards in driving a car, owning a home below a flood plane, and having a house full of cleaning chemicals.

In real words, liberals hate guns.  And guns are a CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT.

The double standard liberals conceal and carry over guns stinks of course.  They defend a DERIVED RIGHT to kill kids in the womb, but want to quickly ignore the ancient and clear right to own firearms.

Sorta tiring, huh?
