Chicago Mayor Slams Supreme Court's Second Amendment Ruling
June 27, 2008
Mayor Richard Daley of Chicago has called the Supreme Court's overturning of the Washington D.C. gun ban "a very frightening decision" and vowed to fight vigorously any challenges to Chicago's ban.
The mayor, speaking at a Navy Pier event yesterday, said he was sure mayors nationwide, who carry the burden of keeping cities safe, will be outraged by the decision.

Mayor Daley: Mr. Mayor...you need to shag a clue. Are you going to outlaw knives too? Grow up!

That's about right for a POS politician like Daley, who thinks that he can continue to violate the rights of decent people, while helping violent criminals have unarmed victims. He should be recalled, then he could feel real special.

If the 2nd Ammendment doesn't apply to states or local govt, what about the first, can we ignore free speech, free press etc? The 4th can we then search and seize with out warrant? Dailey is missing the point states and cities are not above the constitution. Guns don't kill people, people do, guns are just an avenue.
As it has been said before blaming guns for violence is like blaming spoons for Rosie being fat. It is just an instrument some use. If we outlaw spoons some people will still choose to be fat. If we eliminate guns deviants will still commit crimes. It is the person.
If the gun ban is so great why haven't gun crimes been eliminated in Chicago or DC? Becasue the only ones this affects are law abiding people. If a criminal is going to rob, rape or kill someone do you think they stop and say "Wait, I better not do this because I'll face a possession of a handgun charge"? No, they are driven by their need to commit their crime of choice. Until they decide to become law abiding citizens the only choice is to incarcerate those who choose this path.
He just doesn't get it. My suggestion, fix the people then you can have an impact on the problem.
