Now That We Have Heller Will Daley Do The Right Thing?

The D.C. gun ban was the victim of a Supreme Court smackdown today. Will Mayor Daley do the right thing and quickly amend the gun prohibitions heading off millions of wasted dollars inviting unnecessary and expensive litigation?

The Court has spoken and D.C. vs. Heller is now the law of the land. Call Mayor Daley and ask him to not waste your money by trying to enforce laws that violate the civil rights of citizens.

Since the court held out gun ownership as a right charging a tax for that right is as invalid as a poll tax and those were outlawed decades ago.

As for Alderman Richard Mell who forgot to register his guns, he needs to know that the NRA needs Plaintiffs to sue Chicago for violating their civil rights to gun possession. He too has the right to keep his toys.

Daley vows to waste your moneny and you can read about that right here.

Daley was on TV saying that he would fight this ruling. He was so red in the face it looked like he was about to explode. I couldn't help but laugh out loud at the pained look on his face. He is such a hypocrite to claim that guns are bad, yet have a 24 hour armed police security detail.

This profound piece was posted on the Chicago Tribune website,please pass it around:

People please don't be mad at us,we really try and protect you and we do respond to your calls as fast as we can. There are only 7,000 policeman in Chicago now,there are supposed to be 13,500 but the Mayor won't hire anymore because he is spending all the money on the 2016 Olympic bid.

Are hands are tied now due to the actions of a few bad apples that have tarnished our image,the wild lititgation that the city pays out on,even when they know it is complete BS and they keep suspending and firing innocent officers that are hard honest working policemen on trumped up charges.

Morale is at an all time low on the Chicago Police Department and everytime we confront an armed offender trying to kill us and win we are tarred and feathered in the media.

If they gave us a decent contract and stopped indiscriminately firing officers for political expediency,quit playing the clout game with unit assignments and promotions and hired a few thousand more officers things would be much better for the citizens of Chicago. The way it is going now it is only going to get worse. I do my job but that is all,I can not take a chance of being sued,stripped,suspended,fired or criminally prosecuted for doing my job or being too aggressive. I have a family to feed and need my job,I know this sounds horrible but it is the truth. The days of the hardcore Chicago Police are over,the criminals are running the streets now,this is the truth,ask an officer how bad things are on the CPD.

I am happy that the Supreme Court upheld the 2nd Amendment,I believe that citizens have the right to defend themselves and their property and I know that the police can not be everywhere.

Please support the Chicago Police,defend us against media abuse and demand that the Mayor give us a fair contract,stop arbitarily firing us for doing our jobs and the he hires several thousand more of us to replenish the ranks.

Thank You Chicago Citizens!!!

I don't know what the problem is, but the YouTube videos that you embed only run for two seconds before they freeze up.

If the mayor instructs the police to defy a Supreme Court ruling there IS a remedy. Under Federal law it is a serious crime to conspire to deprive citizens of their Constitutional rights. This ruling and issue is so clear the action could not be taken in innocence. Prosecution should be demanded not in spite of his high office but especially because of it.
