Eric Holder, All For Federal Jurisdiction? We'll Soon Find Out!

Chicago Tries Another Tack In Its Battle Against The 2nd Amendment

July 9, 2010 by Bob Livingston

Four days after the United States Supreme Court overturned a Chicago handgun ban as unconstitutional, city aldermen passed another ordinance that bans gun shops from the city and makes it a crime for a gun owner to step outside his home—even onto his porch or into his garage—with a handgun.

Several people and at least one organization have already sued the city in Federal court seeking to have the new ordinance declared null and void, according to The Washington Examiner.

The Eric Holder Justice Department ripped Arizona’s immigration law within days of its passage, saying the law stepped into the jurisdiction of the Federal government. On Tuesday the Federal government filed suit against Arizona over the law.

The Supreme Court’s ruling in the Chicago handgun ban made it clear that cities and states could not infringe on the right of Americans to keep and bear arms—essentially making gun laws a Federal issue. I’m sure that, since Holder is so concerned with keeping Federal authority where it belongs he’ll soon be joining the suit against the city of Chicago.

When will we see your department file that lawsuit, Mr. Holder?

If You Aren't Outraged, You Aren't Paying Attention!


  1. Good morning, I followed you over here. You will find, we who read your blog are OUTRAGED and are PAYING ATTENTION. We're all peas in a pod.

  2. Thanks Woodsterman, I've been following you as well, and see you on other blogs too. Things are heating up, though I fear many don't know the fire's been turned on yet...
