    Isabel, thanks for including the Chicago Reader in the list of sources you curate for us. Some of us who no longer live in the city sometimes forget what a great source of information it is… especially the feature stories. Look forward to reading this article about Uptown.


  2. - Flying Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Thursday, Jan 19, 23 @ 9:07 am:

    As a gun owner having a hard time seeing how a law that has mirrored other states positions on firearms can be “clearly unconstitutional.”

    Then again, I don’t see boogeymen around every corner.

    Weird how virtually no Democrats in Illinois ever mention money in politics anymore. That’s a mystery.

    It’s so unusual for there to be a major politicians birthday where I didn’t get a birthday notice via email “from a family member” asking me to “sign” a card and to contribute to their campaign.

    I understand it’s because he’s richer than Creosus, but it does make me feel a little less cynical.

    Happy Birthday, Governor. Thanks for getting into the fight for a better future for Illinois.

    I see Aurora Pride is suing the city over the parade rules there under the theory we discussed here last summer - that their First Amendment rights are being subject to veto based on content by the police over whether they want to work the parade or not. I suspect they will win based on that argument.

    Torco Sign-

    Dems in this state finally have a sugar daddy…

    that wins elections.

    Are they now hypocrites? Probably. But hypocrites that win elections.

    Flying Elvis, Bruen changed the test for firearms laws being Constitutional from 2 steps to 1. Most of those other states laws were already being challenged pre Bruen, and after, SCOTUS ordered many of the lower courts to examine those cases according to Bruen. And they are not holding up well, not even a little bit. Heller-guns in common use for legal purposes can’t be banned. Bruen- text, history and tradition means if there was not an analogous historical regulation in 1791, its most likely not constitutional.


  8. - 47th Ward - Thursday, Jan 19, 23 @ 11:10 am:

    ===an analogous historical regulation in 1791===

    It’s clear to many people that our militia is poorly regulated.


  9. - Flying Elvis'-Utah Chapter - Thursday, Jan 19, 23 @ 12:05 pm:

    Brock, are you telling me high cap mags are now available in NY and Cali?

    Must have missed that.


  10. - H-W - Thursday, Jan 19, 23 @ 1:25 pm:

    Ron B @ 9:49am

    I was thinking something similar. With the right attorney willing to pursue this beyond the county level, this will be a very interesting case to watch. It has an element of government officials intentionally discriminating against a protected status group. It thus has the potential to become a federal case, if again, the right attorneys are involved.


  11. - Brock - Thursday, Jan 19, 23 @ 2:06 pm:

    Flying Elvis, in numerous places those mag bans have now been ruled unconstitutional BEFORE Bruen, and after Bruen SCOTUS handed down additional instruction to judges in those ongoing cases to reevaluate based on Bruen. California has literally been reduced to begging the federal judge to listen to them. Judge Benitez in fact. he said before Bruen it could not stand and now the case is back in his hands and he again said no to the ban. I’m not sure where the case is now but my understanding is California has little legal chance of sustaining it. Bruen destroyed the states only reasoning where they said they are government and they thought it was a good idea so that should be that, despite the infringement of the rights. That is the old balancing of needs test. That is gone now. Now it is just strict judicial scrutiny. Does it violate the right or not. If it does, even for good cause, it can not stand. New York has been smacked down and reduced to judicial groveling and trying to say historical examples of anti catholic bigotry give it the right to discriminate now. The court said no. You need to really read upon Bruen. It’s as big as Brown vs Board of ed. it is the wrecking ball to gun control.

    Thanks so much for linking to the article about Helen Shiller, one of the best
