Support Gun Rights? You’re a Gangbanger!

At least you are if you’re Oak Park, IL village manager, you think so.  Here’s an unintended consequence of Heller that’s going to be good for us.  You see, currently Chicago has no shooting culture.  It’s been, pretty much, completely eliminated because of the Chicago and surrounds’ gun bans.  Heller offers an opportunity for those cities to rebuild a healthy shooting culture.  I can’t think of a better use for an old warehouse than a nice, indoor, 50 yard indoor shooting range.  Can you?

Even Philadelphia hasn’t managed to eliminate its shooting culture, and we even have a few pro-gun state reps that represent constituents in the city.  There are constituents for the right to keep and bear arms within the City of Brotherly Love, and definitely within its suburbs (I’m living proof).  Suburban reps tend to either support guns rights, or are moderate on it.  Only in a few near-city suburbs do you get radical anti-gun representatives.  Even as bad as Nutter is on guns, his rhetoric is nothing like Mayor Daleys.  Nutter has to decieve to do what he wants.  Daley has no such restriction.

That may likely change.  Given the calls the Oak City, IL manager has gotten from people wanting to own handguns, it seems that it might change rather quickly.  If the anti-gun folks lose Chicago and New York as solid anti-gun enclaves, it’ll be over for them.  Once people have friends who are shooters, or relative, or neighbors, it gets a lot harder to maintain the level of ignorance needed to get them to sign onto the gun control agenda with any enthusiasm.

    Heller is a gangbanger? I am a gangbanger etc?

    If criminals are fore RTKBA, explain to me why wolves would want sheep to have teeth and claws.

    The Heller decision now gives some politicians a way to deflect pressure from the gun grabbers. Maybe other towns and cities will come around too.
