  1. I know that Heller left open the possibility for some restrictions, sometime called time, place and manner restrictions, though I've never seen that verbiage used in a SCOTUS opinion. In my opinion, one of the most egregious infringements is the ban on public transportation while politicians simultaneously excuse public transportation from Common Carrier Liability. Other transportation companies, such as Greyhound bus, taxis and various shuttles have a duty to its passengers to use the highest degree of care consistent with the mode of conveyance used and the practical operation of its business as a common carrier as it relates to the safety of passengers. Failure to fulfill this duty constitutes negligence. Obviously the CTA is very dangerous but people who are assaulted on the CTA have no legal recourse against the city, whereas they would have legal recourse against a private carrier. To be stripped of the right to defend oneself and stripped of the ability to seek legal recourse is a double injustice.
  2. 2020 CTA crime statistics data set: https://data.cityofchicago.org/Public-Safety/CTA-2020-thefts-robberies-drug-offenses-and-violen/kyky-2i4x/data What is not in the data set are things like trespassing on CTA property, theft of services of the CTA/passing bad checks etc... graffiti/vandalism and similar shenanigans. It looks like there were 2835 crime on the CTA last year. The crimes that most people are concerned about are violent crimes against passengers and it will take more time to break that out...
  3. The current environment with the CTA is creating incredible numbers of victims. The situation with the CTA is very similar to the state of affairs for all of Illinois before Shepard v. Madigan. It seems to me that if a victim / plaintiff similar to Mary Shepard challenged the prohibition of carrying on the CTA, the prohibition would be found unconstitutional in the same way that state-wide prohibition on carrying was found to be unconstitutional.

  5. Prosecutors: Rapist who followed woman from Belmont Red Line was supposed to be on electronic monitoring https://cwbchicago.com/2021/03/prosecutors-rapist-who-followed-woman-from-belmont-red-line-was-supposed-to-be-on-electronic-monitoring.html
  6. CWB now has a CTA section: https://cwbchicago.com/category/cta Truly frightening. When are the courts going to overturn this dangerous infringement on our RTKBA ?
  7. The big draw for me was that Walmart didn't gouge on ammo prices during the Obama ammo crisis. Now that they've stopped sell ammo, I probably won't go to Walmart ever again. Walmart is filled with the dumbest people on Earth. When I approach Walmart I see people coming out of the Entrance. How dumb do you have to be to enter the store through the Exit and exit the store through the Entrance. The dummies are also incapable of following the Covid 19 traffic management arrows on the floor. How hard is it to follow a green arrow? OMG they're so dumb.
  8. Carjackers shoot at CTA employee in company lot while stealing his car https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2021/1/15/22233315/carjackers-shoot-at-cta-employee-in-company-lot-while-stealing-his-car

  11. Police: Attack on CTA Blue Line train in Oak Park leaves passenger with head trauma, eye injury https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/ct-oak-blue-line-attack-tl-1210-20201204-njrdfgssfjgb3khpnxark7noge-story.html
  12. Woman gets 2 years for series of Red Line attacks https://cwbchicago.com/2020/11/woman-gets-2-years-for-series-of-red-line-attacks.html Seems like a light sentence for someone who used a metal object to stab someone in the chest. Tatyona Davis will probably serve 20 months of that 2 year sentence. The Cook County State's Attorney's office and Cook County judges give out recognizance bonds for anything short of murder. Statistically, you have a pretty good chance of sharing the bus or train car with a violent offender anytime you ride the CTA.
  13. Man in serious condition after pushed in front of oncoming train at Jackson; Red Line rerouted https://abc7chicago.com/red-line-cta-rerouted-after-man-pushed-in-front-of-train-police/8316661/ In what way has the prohibition of carrying on the CTA made anyone safer ?
  14. Police search for suspects after CTA passenger beaten, robbed on Pink Line https://abc7chicago.com/cta-pink-line-chicago-police-damen-street-station/8188061/
  15. There are 2 main arguments: 1) That the PLCAA doesn't apply to this particular lawsuit 2) That the PLCAA is unconstitutional, because it (1) overrides Tenth Amendment principles of federalism, (2) cannot be sustained under the Commerce Clause,5 and (3) violates the Fifth Amendment. The idea that somehow the type and number of safeties on a gun were not "adequate" is a moot point. The Superior Court of Pennsylvania does not have the authority to rule on whether the safeties were "adequate." These judges are clearly attempting to legislate from the bench, attempting to gut the PLCAA.
