  1. On Nov. 23, the court ordered additional briefing on two questions: (1) whether the Second Amendment's plain text covers the conduct at issue in Naperville's ordinance banning the sale of so-called "assault weapons," and (2) if so, whether the "regulation is consistent with this Nation's historical tradition of firearm regulation." N.Y. State Rifle & Pistol a**'n, Inc. v. Bruen, 142 S. Ct. 2111, 2126 (2022). Briefs are due on December 5, 2022, and should not exceed 20 pages. Mailed notice (lk, ) (Entered: 11/23/2022) The defendant was also given additional time to answer the complaint and after a status report from the parties, the new briefing schedule was set.

  3. Let's face it, if the democrats in Illinois want to pass any kind of weapons ban, there is nothing that can be done to stop it since they have utter control of the Illinois house, senate and governor. That has already happened in New York in relation to location restrictions. While it is nice to say the Supreme Court says that can't be done, the bottom line is that any such law stands until a court finds it unconstitutional and you might sit in jail wating for the supreme court to find the law invalid. All it would take to prolong for several years is for a liberal district court judge to get the case, refuse to issue a preliminary injunction and watch the case drag on for several years. As has been seen in California, a clearly invalid law can be upheld for years by judges when any court (like the 9th Circuit) is dominated by a particular political philosphy.
  4. FEDEX has the same inspection provision. USPS has various ability to inspect packages ranging from xray to belief that the package may contain plant material to obtaining a search warrant. So I am not sure that there is any shipping company that doesn't reserve the right in some manner to inspect packages.
  5. Let's face it, turnout will determine who wins the governor's race. A big Chicago turnout and Bailey is toast. If there is bad weather and a low turnout in Chicago, he has a chance. He may have a chance with the hispanic vote in Chicago if he puts in the time but that is doubtful.
  6. I suspect that there will be ever increasing restricted locaitons, types of guns, and magazine capacity requirements until the Supreme Court actually slaps one or all of those down. I suspect that the four or five cases being held at the Supreme Court will be sent back down to the appellate courts for reconsideration taking into account this new Supreme Court decision. What will really be interesting is how contorted theh 9th Circiuit's analysis will be to maintain their record of finding gun laws constitutional while pretending to follow the Supreme Court. I expect most if not all of the held cases will find themselves back in the Supreme Court in a year or two if they are simply remanded at this point.
  7. I would not agree that it is so clear cut as the two statements on unenforceability and malice. First, only the NY law was at issue in the Supreme Court that that case has been remanded to the lower courts to readdress the statute taking into account the Supreme Court's ruling. No other statute is automatically unconstitutional, especially in another state that is worded differently. Now, if Chicago/Illinois had a statute identical to the NY law, a DA obviously look pretty bad if he tried to enforce the law before the case in NY is addressed on remand. But, there probably is no other law in any state that is identical to the NY provision. You can expect every restrictive state has draft statutes already prepared to try to deal with this decision. California, I saw, already has said that is the case.
  8. https://cwbchicago.com/2022/04/charges-filed-after-lightfoot-bodyguard-allegedly-spots-a-gun-in-mans-shoulder-bag-while-waiting-for-food-at-shake-shack.html Judge Kelly McCarthy focused on the alleged weapons as she pondered Broadway’s bail conditions. “I don’t find these are for personal protection at all,” McCarthy said of the allegations that he had armor-piercing bullets and laser sights. She set bail at $15,000, meaning he must post a $1,500 deposit to get out of jail. McCarthy gave Broadway permission to return to Wisconsin over the state’s objections. Prosecutors charged him with two counts of felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, two counts of possessing high-capacity magazines, and other misdemeanors.
  9. Strange about Steel City - stated policy on their website for ammo is: Illinois— No sales to the city of Chicago or Cook County. All other Illinois residents must email us a copy of their FOID card in addition to their State ID. Ammunition must ship to an address on one of these ID’s.

    CUP to PSI

    The key is that CUP and PSI are measured to different scales and measure two different things and are not interchangeable. One explanation that I have seen is that CUP uses a copper crusher that is effected by the duration of the pressure as well as the pressure itself, whereas PSI is done by an electronic transducer that takes a virtually instantaneous measurement of the highest pressure. Put another way, since a longer duration, lower pressure pulse can crush the cylinder as much as a shorter duration, higher pressure pulse, CUP pressures frequently register lower than actual peak pressures (as measured by a transducer) by up to 20%. For example, the SAAMI maximum pressure for the 7.62×51mm is given as 52,000 psi (CUP), or 62,000 psi (430 MPa); the .45-70, on the other extreme, is listed as 28,000 in both CUP and psi (190 MPa).
  11. Let's see, he was fined $1000 but if he charged even $100 per student he made $80,000. Pretty good business that he has going.
  12. I have lived and worked in the loop/south loop for just over 30 years and use a bus or subway at least 10 times a week. Never been robbed or even acosted in any way that would justify shooting someone. The risk of crime in the loop is real but very minor compared to the worst parts of the city. Be aware of your situation at all time and don't ride the bus or subway late at night. As someone pointed out, if something goes bad on public transit, it happens very quickly. Also, firing a weapon on a bus, subway car or a platform puts alot more people at risk that just the criminal. In certain situations, shooting someone during public transit may well be justified but there are risks in those more crowded, tight areas that are greater than on a street.
