Second Amendment

An online article by Steve Chapman of the Chicago Tribune, for Real Clear Politics discusses how the second amendment has been a total stranger to the Supreme court. Until recently.
The District of Columbia statute in question is one of the most stringent in the country. It bans the ownership of handguns except those registered before 1976, and it requires rifles or shotguns to be not only registered but kept unloaded and equipped with a trigger lock. Such tight restrictions, the appeals court said, can't be reconciled with the Bill of Rights.

The D.C. law looks a little familiar doesn't it?

Speaking of legal gun ownership, a reporter in Virginia took it upon himself to publish the 130,000+ names of citizens w/a con. carry license. That guy KIM (the otherside of Kim) was kind enough to publish HIS address,so he can feel whats its like when the whole world knows where he lives.

As a police officer, it is somtimes hard to argue, with gun control. However, most of the country does not live in a metropolis. And I wont give my weapons up.

So, I say " From my cold dead hands"

Let us ban those assault weapons. They really serve no real use. A regular rifle (lever action or bolt) will work just fine.

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
that can and is read by people other than Chicago Police Officers.
