"Gun Lobby"?

That's funny. I thought lobbyists' jobs involved sucking up to Congresscritters, not filing lawsuits.

Did something change since yesterday? Do lobbyists file lawsuits, now?

Did I miss something about the new role of lobbyists in the Heller decision?

It's civil rights organization. The right it seeks to protect just happens to be one specified in the 2nd amendment.

Only police officers, aldermen and a handful of others are exempt from the ban

...the mayor said, "and to me, I think this decision really places those who are rich and those are in power, they'll always feel safe. Those who do not have the power do not feel safe, ...

Ok. Now I'm confused again. Which is it Dick?

Make sure you guys post a comment. There is a link on the page to post. Overwhelmingly, people support the 2nd Amendment. It's a great thing.

I am so confused, what is this "Gun Lobby" they keep talking about???
do they mean us? the private citizens who want to protect our rights??

who are these politicians who are not afraid to take on the "gun lobby", i mean for crying out loud, do they not understand that the NRA is made up of the public??????

Stick it to Chicago, they need to to get with the program anyway. Its their fault (Chicago) that the state is so wacked out

Most gun stores don't have a lobby.:)

Beretta Galleries, and the like, probably do, but otherwise there aren't many gun lobbies.
