Get a big enough meeting together in her district and she will come around. Don't give up just yet. Votes count! Ooops! :thumbsup: This is Chicago we are talking about. They count over and over...... Good luck!

This case is getting better and better, even after the awesome win.

All the best.

That was easily the best read I've had all year!

I predicted that Chicago/Cook county will be sold out in order to get "shall issue".
Based on the restrictions on carry in Chicago/Cook County, I was right.

I can not begin to say what a huge, monumental, gargantuan, definitive victory this is... While it is a lower court the principles appear, at least to me, to be well thought out.

This is spectacular...... This will make Myerscough and her miserable wimpy, sloppy, thought processes choke... :hyper:

This is like a look into the future if we win Shepard. Oh the calamity! You must stay enforcement or blood will run in the streets! It doesn't matter if we violate the constitution, after all we've been doing it for so long... :rolleyes:

Sent from my tactical multicam SCH-I500.
Stung by the result of McDonald v. City of Chicago, 130 S. Ct. 3020 (2010), the City quickly enacted an ordinance that was too clever by half. Recognizing that a complete gun ban would no longer survive Supreme Court review, the City required all gun owners to obtain training that included one hour of live‐range instruction, and then banned all live ranges within City limits. This was not so much a nod to the importance of live‐range training as it was a thumbing of the municipal nose at the Supreme Court.

alan gura is the man. No one can do what he does in the manner that he does it. His wording are so practical as he hands down a slap to his opponents.
And in person, he is the coolest down to earth person you can imagine.
We are blessed to have him fightin on our side. Not a member of 2nd amendment foundation yet? What will it take.

If the thief is found breaking in, and he is struck so that he dies, there shall be no guilt for his bloodshed.

I think one of Gura's enduring legacies will be his ability to write legal documents in a way that the average person can understand. It is an extremely rare talent. We will have a lot of legal text that the average guy can look at and understand that just does not exist in a lot of areas of jurisprudence. It appears to me that his style is also infecting some judges as well. A lot of the cases seem to have judicial writings that are above average in understandability (is that a word?) as well, even some of the losing cases.

By itself, that may well make a big difference long term as much of the fight is really a political "hearts and minds" kind of thing as opposed to something that can truly be won in court. Get the average Joe to thinking he really does have a RTKBA and even if he does not want to personally exercise it, he is going to be less inclined to actively oppose it for others and eventually accept it.

It is a lot like abortion in that respect. One does not have to personally approve of or engage in the practice to accept that it is a settled issue.

MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES IN OPPOSITION TO DEFENDANTS' MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
http://ia700101.us.a...180772.34.0.pdf

It's full of all kinds of Gura-goodness (e.g. "Nonetheless, Defendants and their amici persist in ignoring the two words appearing in the Second Amendment after "keep." Their denial is not well-grounded.")

Here's the Conclusion:

Defendants' arbitrary denial of Second Amendment rights must be enjoined. Defendants'
motion for summary judgment should be denied. Plaintiffs' motion for summary judgment should be granted.


Hmm, the link is dead at the moment. How do you go about searching for it?

Any new news on this one? I'm guessing it will be appealed if it hasn't already.

Edit for typo.
