NRA loses appeal to Chicago.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/0..._n_211470.html

Saw on local news last night that NRA lost this one. So Chicago isn't part of the United States?

We'll see how it rolls. People keep leaving out the 14th amendment when they start spewing that "it only applies to federal areas" nonsense.

After the DC case, I think the NRA has a very good chance of winning this one. The judges reasons for upholding the law border on insane.

Well D.C. is not a state, so it is a little different.

I don't know how I feel about this, should federal law supersede state law? I am sure it does already, but to what extent I have no idea. Are first citizens of a state, and then the country?

I think I may actually be with the Judge on this one. Although I disagree with their decision I think the states still need to have some sovereignty, and if the state court OK's is it should stand...it hurts to even say that though.

BIG EDIT!!!!

Ghost is right, smart guy. The section of the 14th he was probably referring to is:

Quote:
Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

-Gerald Ford/Thomas Jefferson

"A Republic, if you can keep it"
- Benjamin Franklin

I think this will be an easy win for the NRA.
