So, Does This Mean You DON'T Want a Spanking?


It looks like Winnetka, IL has joined three other Illinois towns (Morton Grove, Evanston, and Hale Demar's hometown, Wilmette) in repealing its ban on handguns. On the one hand, that's smart, and I applaud them.

On the other hand, I'm glad Chicago's out there holding the line. Even if Oak Park caves and Chicago is the last municipality with a gun ban in Illinois, I have faith that Chicago will stand strong, if only because Mayor Daley, like an enraged snapping turtle, will lock his jaws and refuse to let go until he is gutted and made into soup (this will be done metaphorically, of course, but it can feel pretty literal when it's a federal judge doing the gutting.) This is important; it means there will be a court decision, and when it's clear that Heller applies to cities outside the "federal enclave" of D.C., these laws will topple all across the country. The trouble for the Mayor Hizzoner Daley is that even though gun rights advocates across the country are openly rooting for him to continue on his current path and take his beating in court, he can't help himself. He just can't let go of that stick. We can say whatever we want. We may tip him off, but it isn't going to save him. He's determined to get his spanking no matter what.

You're gonna need a bigger paddle...

I sure wish that suit would get filed in a federal court before Obama can appoint his own federal judges to the local courts.

Is this the same Hizzoner that bulldozed Meigs field at midnight and closed it for good after 09.11?

Same thought as Matt G.

It would not take too many Obama nominations to the SCOTUS to get a ruling that guts Heller.
