    Exclamation Critical Second Amendment Ruling--Federal Court Defends Right to Keep and Bear Arms

    The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois ruled this week that it is unconstitutional for Chicago to treat people with non-violent misdemeanor convictions the same as convicted felons.* The NRA-supported case, Gowder v. Chicago, involves plaintiff Shawn Gowder, who was convicted as a first-time offender for mere possession of a firearm in violation of Illinois law in 1995. His misdemeanor record did not block him from getting a state Firearm Owner's Identification card, so he could still legally possess a gun in Illinois.

    Default chicago gun laws ...

    was watching the news and Chicago is running 100 more gun deaths than last year and most are gang related shootings (over 900 with five in one weekend).... guess the efforts to keep guns out of the hands of criminals doesn't work .. the people who should not have guns are well armed while the honest citizen is left defenseless .... how is that sound logic.
