Chicago Gun Ban Ruled Unconstitutional By Federal Judge

Chicago Gun Ban Ruled Unconstitutional By Federal Judge

“Guns save lives every day, you just don't hear about those stories on places like this liberal outlet. RARELY does many of the numerous stories of how a good guy with a gun saves many lives. MOST law abiding citizens who own guns are responsible people who take gun safety and lessons seriously. Criminals do NOT obey laws, that's why they are called CRIMINALS so making the good guy give up his gun is only putting more guns into the CRIMINALS hands, and they say YAY for them!! Thanks for making stricter gun laws now we've REALLY got the upper hand with all these unarmed victims!”

“Sorry, but if people are going to go around saying, "Guns don't kill people, people killl people.", then conversely, "Guns don't save people, people save people." The purpose a gun serves is determined by the intentions of the user. Your statement is nothing but the same old Chicken Little defense. Those guns people get to protect themselves from those criminals lurking around every corner are more likely to be used against someone accidently or to settle a domestic dispute than some boogeyman criminal.”

“You cannot wisely assume that the intruder is only there for possessions for drugs and not to harm you or your family. A lot of times, the intruder is already in the home before you have enough time to dial 911. Do you know how long it typically takes for a police officer to arrive after your call? Most cops arrive after the murder has taken place. Not all criminals that break and enter a home are there just to steal for drugs. You cannot assume they will do no harm. To do so is very unwise and dangerous.

I don't know about you, but if someone has broken into my home I'm going to feel much safer knowing I'm armed with protection. If that criminal realizes you don't have a gun, all the more easier his job gets. Many of them rape and harm the homeowner. By the time you realize someone is in your home, it's already too damn late for you to round up your family and call 911 and get out of there. That criminal has the upper hand already.”

“It's not an assupmtion. It's the statistical reality, not your Chicken Little, I'm John McClane gun fantasy. Sorry, but if you want to own a gun as a security blanket replacement, you don't have to justify it with scary make believe stories and exaggerations. That gun someone supposedly buys for self protection is more likely to be used to commit suicide or be involved in an accidental shooting than take out a blood thirsty burglar. More guns are stolen from homes and cars than are ever used in self defense against a criminal.”

“The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

What are you going to do when that intruder breaks into your home, negotiate with him? Tell him about the stricter gun laws in case he hasn't heard about them yet? Tell him it's illegal to have that gun in his hands? Tell him you don't believe in having guns?

How will you protect yourself and your family (if any)? Yell at him to stop? Call the police and tell him to wait until they get there before he shoots??”

“I think the best response is a nice round of Kumbaya... Everyone knows that one and you can get rocking side to side... criminals always respond to that. If that isn't good enough, write a letter to the editorial page of your local paper. That'll teach them.”

wolfsonnydiane on Jan 7, 2014 at 10:27:27

“Let me destroy you fantasy 1 more than 95 percent of homes broken into no one is home [gun with no one to use it is no deterrent] Even homes broken into with owner home , thieve never knew they were home, did not intend to break in with people in home had no intent to harm you. 2 Those wishing to do you serious harm are not deterred from doing so because you have a gun . lots of dead gun owners shot in their sleep or when completely unaware they were about to be shot. Alarms are far more effective in preventing home break ins then is any gun . Burglar alarms notify police neighbors you, the thieve, their presence is known even when no one is home. No gun is a deterrent to those who plan to kill you .”

russlbaca on Jan 7, 2014 at 09:05:34

“Most break-ins occur when the resident is gone. What's a gun going to do about that? Most criminals who break burglarize homes don't carry weapons, and they just want your possessions to pawn for drugs. Most criminals who burglarize homes are under the age of 25, and committed by someone with an indirect connection to the resident, who finds out through the grapevine, that the resident is away.

What are you going to do when that intruder breaks into your home? Smart choice would be to call 911, round up your family, and get out of the home. Use any weapon in your possession to secure and defend your exit should you encounter a threat. Let the people who are trained and prepared for violent criminals do their job. Going around hunting a prowler is about the stupidest thing a resident can do. Sometimes that person creeping around your home is someone who lives there...wouldn't want to shoot a family member by accident.

If you're going to acquire a gun for self defense in the home, a shotgun is a better choice than that AR15, AK47, or even a pistol for most people. Yeah, these aren't the romanticized choice of the action heroes emulated in TV or movies, but for those inexperienced in CQC, if you do have to shoot, pointing in the general direction is still pretty effective. Plus, slide action shotguns make a very distinctive and known sound.”

“You seem to forget the deaths of innocent people by irrational people who say they were protecting their homes.”

“sadly the very reason to break in is to steal your gun......................the myth that a person will take on a intruder with that gun is just that a myth, you are far more likely to shoot your own family member or yourself.”

“Good luck to ya when you're confronted with an intruder in your home! Maybe you can just tell them they just enforced stricter gun laws so they can't have that gun in their hand, yeah, that'll probably be enough to stop them from harming you. Just yell at them, stop or I'll report that you have a gun!!”

To look this way is fine but you have no right to think people in the city will see you as anything but a homeless person. I choose to look this way in the winter sometimes but I know I don't fit into the Mansion On Turtle Creek. Four Seasons or the French room. Not judgeing just the facts of how socitity is. If these folks were poor and had no way of changing thier looks it would be a diffrent story.”

“Exactly right, it's their business and should be nobody elses which is why I fail to see the urgency they have to make sure the whole world knows they are gay. I couldn't care less if the person next to me prefers the same sex, it's not anything to do with my life, and for that reason, everyone should just keep their sexual preferences to themselves, stop announcing it as if you're angry and just daring someone to say something back to you about it. That's the problem with all this gay issue stuff.
I don't feel the need to shout out to everyone that I'm heterosexual and I'm attracted to men. It has no bearing on whether someone is likeable or acceptable in life but they choose to believe that does. I will befriend anyone who wants to befriend me no matter what religion, race or sexual lifestyle they may have so long as they treat me with the same respect as I treat them.”

“Gays come out because they are looking for equal rights. Health insurance coverage, marriage to the person they love. You have those rights just because you are straight--Gays have to make a ruckus to get recognized.”

Ev Ransom on Jun 22, 2013 at 00:23:16

“What is it that you all don't understand here! You don't have to announce your heterosexuality because it is seen every day. It's what people assume you are without ever pondering that perhaps you may be attracted to the same sex. Not all gay men are effeminate nor are all lesbians masculine. You don't realize how many times you have to keep coming out because people make the assumption that you're straight. What would you do in those situations? It's easy to not have any empathy when these issues don't concern you. Heterosexuality is represented well in every aspect of life. Do you not have a social life? You mean to tell me that your conversations are never about the opposite sex? It never just casually comes up? You don't take notice of a person of the opposite sex or talk about that among your friends? It's unrealistic to just say keep it to yourself when we are talking about attraction.”

“The problem with your statement is that not everyone who conceives a child is a woman, some are young teens and even younger rape victims who cannot take care of themselves. Others are mentally ill on heavy medication or on illegal drugs or alcohols. You can legislate a woman's body and rights based on your personal views all you want, but you can't legislate behaviors or actions that lead to disabled or drug addicted children whose parent sought no prenatal care. Is is more important to you that a child be born, abused and neglected when no one is going to pay one penny for its care? If so, that doesn't sound like prolife to me. It sounds like pro-birth.”
