Mayor Daley Wants to Sue Gun Manufacturers in the World Court in a Clueless Attempt to Reduce Violence in Chicago

WLS AM Chicago just reported Mayor Richard Daley wants to bypass the US Court System to prosecute gun manufacturers for violence in Chicago. Not sure how the gun manufacturers are responsible for violence in Chicago, especially since they are not allowed to sell guns in Chicago. Of course, we are talking about the insane mind of the oppressive Chicago mayor. Daley wants to take gun manufacturers to the Court of the Hague, an international court, to punish them, according to WLS AM.

Isnít it like Daley to take actions that will not solve the problems in his city. Daley has been mayor for over 20 years, perhaps itís time to admit he is the failure that has led to this increase in violence in Chicago. Obviously his oppressive gun laws havenít helped, and I would conclude empowered street gangs since there is no threat of residents in Chicago defending themselves without breaking Chicagoís gun laws and being charged themselves of a crime.

This thuggish criminal buffoon has never been very bright. I understand he had to take the bar exam three times before he passed. Now he seems to be entering another dimension in which I would say he is becoming delusional. This disease already struck Hot Rod long ago. Maybe its what naturally happens to liberal socialist dems.

Link to Sun-Times story.

Six years after the state Supreme Court dismissed his $433 million lawsuit against the gun industry, Mayor Daley today called for a change of venue — to the World Court normally reserved for disputes between nations and crimes against humanity.

Wrapping up the sixth annual Richard J. Daley Global Cities Forum, Daley convinced more than a dozen of his counterparts from around the world to approve a resolution urging "redress against the gun industry through the courts of the world" in The Hague.

"This is coming from international mayors. They're saying, 'We’re tired of your guns, America. ... We don't want those anymore because guns kill and injure people,' " Daley told a news conference at the University of Illinois at Chicago. . . .

What a great idea. Whaddya think that will cost?

Is he going to sue Glock and FN? It's hard for me to see how any World Court could have jurisdiction over a dispute between an American mayor and an American corporation over products sold in the U.S.

Don, you just do not understand.

Cost does not matter.
It will be paid for by tax dollars.

Tax dollars = free dollars = unlimited funds.

You should know that. :thumbsup:

Actually, in the audio clip I heard on WLS, Daley was talking about having victims of gun violence in other countries (like Mexico) sue US gun manufacturers in the World Court.
I'm sure he knows it is a longshot at best, but it will still force the gun makers to spend millions of $$ defending themselves. all part of the "death by a thousand cuts" strategy.

Insane.

The man is utterly and undeniably insane.

What is worse ... far too few Chicagoans recognize the fact.

He is going bonkers in anticipation of McDonald. I wonder what kind of crazy stuff will come out of his mouth next? It might actually be enjoyable to watch the man come apart.

Mike Nutter claims both to love the second amendment, and claims that the first amendment protects some "right not to be shot." Good lord.

And author FRAN SPIELMAN can't even spell the word "amendment." Good lord, times two.

i aways liked the Barrett firearms policy , , the firearm mfg. should follow it also of not selling or servicing to the city of chitcago's law enforcement

* Barrett policy was over california's 50 cal. ban
With the current prices of ammo , do not expect warning shots .....

I'd say the gun manufacturers should just shove a erect middle finger into Daley's face and tell him we are a sovereign nation and a flyin' FLIP what you and the World Court thinks! Come and get us! What are they gonna do? Send the National Guard? INTERPOL? It's time for some defiance!

And Drylok may have an idea. If a lawsuit against gun manufacturers is lawful, then so is cell phones, and make-up companies, and McDonalds. All those companies that peddle driver distractions should be sued. Eventually, it would all come to a stop.

Some of you may know Daley's wife has been fighting cancer fro a few years and has been in and out of the hospital lately. My wife, being much more sympathetic than me, thinks he may be coming unglued over his wife's health problems. While I'm sorry his wife has cancer, I cut him zero slack regarding his actions.

Yes, I wouldn't wish cancer on anyone. I do worry now about Daley retiring though, imagine that. Who could be worse than Daley? Rahm Emmanuel, that's who! And he's already testing the waters. I'm wondering if Emmanuel is also thinking Obama is a one term disaster.

I don't think Obama is a one termer, the economy is going to come back not because of his policies but inspite of them and the American electorate is too stupid not to vote for him. They'll just snapshot the economy from 08 and from 12 and see how much better it is and just put the two together. We need them to ram rod cap and tax and any other socialist commie thing they can do to keep America awake.
Hope I'm wrong about all that

Be careful what you wish for, it may just happen. I feel Congress will be getting a house cleaning this fall, which will stop the socialist shift. But what happens between now and then remains to be seen.

It's the frog in hot water thing is all, if they keep the heat up we'll beat him, but if they turn the burner down to luke warm he'll win 2012. Makes me nervous because look how many SCOTUS justices he's appointed or about to appoint already, can you imagine trying to last until after 2016?

Anyways, back on topic :)

My thoughts on the matter above. http://illinoiscarry...tyle_emoticons/default/smiliestirthepot.gif
But some on here do justify the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, because of a UN resolution.

Can't have it both ways in my book. :)

You have to either reject or accept the UN. I am of the latter. Kick out the UN from NYC, and turn into section 8 housing. :pirate:

Even if the gun hating world court ruled against the gun manufactures what authority and means do they have to collect any fines or fees?

Regardless of the media's enthusiastic cheerleading, it's not yet improving, at least not in 49 of the 50 states.
