Chicago: Helping Us Keep Parity with Bloomberg

The City of Chicago has been ordered to sign over yet another near million dollar check over to the NRA for the case of Benson v. City of Chicago:

The Benson case was consolidated into Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers v. City of Chicago and that case challenged five aspects of Chicago’s law: (1) the ban on any form of carriage; (2) the ban on gun stores; (3) the ban on firing ranges; (4) the ban on self-defense in garages, porches, and yards; and (5) the ban on keeping more than one gun in an operable state.

Of course, fighting civil rights lawsuits isn’t cheap, so really this is just reimbursement for costs incurred fighting lawsuits that wouldn’t have any reason to exist if the City of Chicago wasn’t determined to evade the Second Amendment by hook or by crook. But it’s always good to hear the City of Chicago being a top NRA donor. Will we need to issue Rahm a gold jacket? He’s been donating at that level.

  1. Wow. Someone should seriously send Rahm the jacket (or the camo range bag!)

  2. They should absolutely make Rahm an endowment member, and run an advertisement thanking him personally for his million dollar check.

    1. A great photo, RP.

      Notice the check signatures. This is the cabal who runs Chicago.

      Ahmad, the former Chigago comptroller, fled the US after fraud and embezzlement and is under indictment. Emanuel, I would suggest, has a ton of skeletons in the closet and just hasn’t been yet been caught in his indiscretions.

      Yet their likes still get voted into office.

  3. ABC News just ran a segment tonight on all the “gun violence” that has recently plagued Chicago, and of course quoted the Police Superintendent as saying the abundance of easily available guns (“awash in guns!”) is to blame! It’s not that they’ll never learn; it’s that they’ll never admit they are lying!

    1. I hope someone will report when the check clears the bank. Until then it’s meaningless. Taxpayer money indeed.

      1. It’ll clear.

        Federal Courts do not like it when parties – especially big ones – simply ignore their judgments and orders.

        They paid out in McDonald, they’ll pay out here.
