WTF Chicago?*
I made the mistake of going into a Fark discussion thread about Chicago's proposed ban-in-all-but-name regulations this morning.

Reasonable? Really?

It's obvious they missed the part about "shall not be infringed", but apparently they didn't notice the word "bear" in there anyplace, either. "Keep and bear arms". Look it up, people.

*On my f-list I realize I'm preaching to choir, but I have to vent somewhere and the dogs are tired of hearing it.

I try to stay out of Public Internet Debates on guns. And pit bulls. (WTOP.com article comment threads are pretty awful.)

I like how the Aldermen in Chicago--in that recent article posted to guns--all seem to think that SCOTUS's decision was some kind of Tea Party activism or based on flawed studies, rather than, you know, the Constitution.

Yeah, I just got to that post. Hardly surprising. They don't need to know the law because none of it applies to them, any way.

I wonder if the Chicago Aldermen realize their second attempt at a ban has already failed, based on United States v. Miller, 307 U.S. 174 (1939). (Disclaimer: IANAL, and may be reading that decision incorrectly.)
