today a motion for an injunction against the enforcement of the UUW and AgUUW statutes was filed in the case of Shepard v. Madigan
release to follow.
attached is the motion
After reading the response, I have a few observations.
Page 23, Paragraph 2…
“First, the history of the Second and Fourteenth Amendments shows that the framers viewed the right to bear arms as a check on federal, not state, power.”
NEGATIVE Madigan! If the states regulated guns to the extent of complete prohibition, the federal government would inherit complete control by default. Hence the need for the 2A.The states have the authority to enact laws more strict than the federal government ONLY in areas that are not protected by the amendments to the constitution. Stricter drug enforcement, capital punishment for murder, etc., NOT GUN CONTROL that violates the Second Amendment. 2A was incorporated to guarantee that the country/government (ALL LEVELS) remains in the hands of the people. To think that the state can trump federal authority or the US constitution is the ultimate exp
ression of arrogance.
Page 34, Section II, Paragraph 1…
“The Second Amendment is different from other enumerated rights because it protects conduct that by its nature may injure or kill others. And the States have proven themselves capable at addressing the dangers inherent in the right to bear arms while protecting legitimate interests of gun owners.”
Where do I start? There is so much here I can hardly compose myself. These IDIOTS think so little of the law abiding citizens of this state that the simple possession of a firearm will cause the death of others. And that the states are the only authority that possesses the moral capacity to determine how it citizens behave. In other words, they are saying, “You people are too ignorant and we are the only ones smart enough to know what is best. Now shut up and do as we say.” “Proven themselves capable at addressing the dangers”, are you kidding me? The death toll each year from gun violence in Chicago alone surpasses the US solder deaths in Iraq. MADIGAN, CLUE PHONE, IRAQ IS A WAR ZONE! What does that make Chicago?

I have to quit. My meds aren’t helping any more.
I’d like to thank IllinoisCarry.com for the opportunity to express my frustration on this matter. I’d like to also thank all of you for reading and replying. We will prevail.
