    Sigh. Will these idiots never learn?

    THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION IS THE SUPREME LAW OF THE LAND.

    I tell you what. If we get open carry, and I could find this mythical AK-15, I'd walk right up Lake Shore Drive with it.

    I have a few of the famous AK-14s which are the AK-15 predecessor. They're hard to find parts and ammo for though.

    I think they misspoke. Instead of 'prosecuting' anyone with an AR-47, I think they meant 'executing' them. In Chicago, I suspect the police would shoot on sight anyone open carrying an evil rifle.

    Well, at least it beats carrying an AR-47!

    What if a person steps outside their house, flicks their double barrel shotgun, and fires two shots outside like Biden suggested recently? That's still okay, right?

    They have my full support in arresting anyone carrying an "AK-15".
    Otherwise, they can go suck eggs and eat fish heads.

    Hahaha oh man you guys are really making me laugh!

    I need to design a new double barrel shotgun and call it the "AK-15: Biden Special Edition"

    That way when they talk about banning the AK-15 I can get all the closet pseudo-anti-gun Fudds in an uproar.

    Is Chicago arguing... for nullification?

    I'd say they already have. There is no apparent consequence to them. They can tell the fed court to stuff it. What are they going to do?

    All my AK15s were lost in the boating accident.

    Well, here's a question.

    Has a State ever blatantly ignored a Federal Court ruling like this?

    And if so, what was the outcome?

    Well it's not ignoring the Supreme Court, but a lot of the states have said they won't enforce any gun legislation. Maybe that is Illinois' position.

    Yes. The Little Rock Nine.

    The then President of the United States Eisenhower send in the 101st Airbourne to protect the human rights of US citizens.

    I doubt this President cares about protecting the rights of lawful US citizens.

    This beggars belief.

    Only playing devil's advocate here, but aren't those sheriffs who say they will not enforce AWB's etc doing the same thing?

    I don't think so. Choosing not to enforce a law, is different than enforcing an illegal law. Chicago would be falsely stripping citizens of their liberty, while the anti awb sheriffs are just turning a blind eye to the people violating the proposed "law". This law would be unconstitutional anyway, so the sheriffs would just be upholding their oath to uphold the constitution.

    Citizens from ANYWHERE might be able to sue Chicago or obtain a restraining order from such a public statement of disregard for the law. And, it might cost them, just as some of their OTHER foolish acts have done in the past.

    Like today, the Democrats were barring the door to the exercise of rights protected by the Constitution:

    We sure are living in interesting times.

    The Chicago / States Attorney stance is really disheartening.

    At first I was angry, now I'm not so sure. It's actually more of a feeling of .. can't put my finger on it. Feels more like hardened determination.

    We're so close, but so far.

    Maybe I'll sort it out in a couple weeks.

    We have 12,000+ (angry) gun owners marching on Springfield at the IGOLD rally.

    Reminds me of this picture. Just an ordinary man, defending his family.

    Great...I've dedicated my life to acquiring the rare Glock 7 and Podbyrin 9.2 millimeter.

    Now I've got to add an AK-15 to my list... facepalm.gif

    Hey man, I feel your pain.

    I'm still trying to find a Bushwhacker assault rifle and a Sig Schnauzer handgun.

    I hear one of those has a "barrel shroud that goes up to your shoulder"

    BTW, KDawg and Bushmaster1313, thanks for the photos.

    I'd forgotten all about that.

    These failing cities and states just want to distract the attention away from their real problems.
