The 7th Circuit got it right and upheld the Constitution. Let's hope our Constitutional rights continues to be protective.


"The United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled today that Illinois' total ban on carrying firearms for self-defense outside the home or business is unconstitutional...

Judge Richard Posner ruled that Illinois’ ban on carriage is unconstitutional. The Judge went on to say, “One doesn’t have to be a historian to realize that a right to keep and bear arms for personal self-defense in the eighteenth century could not rationally have been limited to the home. . . . Twenty-first century Illinois has no hostile Indians. But a Chicagoan is a good deal more likely to be attacked on a sidewalk than in his apartment on the 35th floor.”"

Good to hear, but here is more on the issue. Read it to get informed about:

1). Why "assault weapon" is a completely useless term, and that the laws passed on the definition are a joke (except to the thousands made accidental felons, that is)

2). Why automatic weapons aren't an issue (hint, they are already banned, but I saw a newspaper article actually mention them as a agenda point!)

3). Why you actually want large magazines for self-defense (hint, you might miss, for one thing)

4). Why the elimination of the "gun culture" will result in more crime, less public safety, and worse response to mass shooting incidents (do you actually want a Mumbai incident in the U.S?)

5). Why confiscation, like what happened in Australia, would be a royally bad idea in the US

It's been posted elsewhere, but I'll put it here because people should read and re-read this.

So, Steven, based on your information, America is pretty much in the best place it could be, regarding gun laws.
Any changes would hurt either side of the issue.
