The City of Chicago has vowed to fight the lawsuits against their gun ban, and to keep enforcing it while the case is pending:
“Chicago’s gun ordinance was not invalidated by the . . . decision. Three prior Supreme Court decisions have found that the Second Amendment does not apply to states and municipalities,” Georges said. “The decision did not change that case law.”
And all three of those prior cases existed prior to the Supreme Court’s decisions in the early 20th century that apply many provisions in the Bill of Rights to the states.Â Fortunately for gun owners in the Chicago area, Wilmette and Morton Grove decided that discretion was the better part of valor, and repealed their bans.Â Mayor Daley would obviously not suffer such an indignaty from anyone who dared challenge his authorty in Chicago.Â The Daleys own that town.Â Hopefully the Supreme Court didn’t get that memo.
