7th Circuit US Court of Appeals' ruling here. Chicago of course banned handguns -- that got struck down in McDonald. Then it went to strict licensing, with a requirement of training on a range, while banning all firing ranges. That got stuck down in Ezell I. Then it tried restrictively regulating ranges, which gets struck down here. Of the city's three requirements, two are stricken 3-0 and the remainder was struck 2-1.
Hat tip to Alice Beard, who points out that the opinion is written by judge Diane Sykes (who I think wrote Ezell I also), who is on Trump's list of 21 judges he'd be willing to appoint to the Supreme Court.
"In fact, Mr. Waugh has "made 'bug-out bags' stuffed with ammo, energy bars, and assorted survival gear for his wife and their three cats. He's begun stowing water and browsing real estate listings in Gunnison County, Colorado, which he's determined to be a 'liberal safe-haven.' Last month, Waugh added a 9mm handgun to his arsenal."
Todd has established a Facebook page to document his candidacy.
Article here. The main contenders were James Madison and Alexander Hamilton, and at the end there were a dozen papers with unsettled authorship. Comparing other, known, writings of the two men, they found both used sentences of the same average length, but there were other clues, as as Hamilton used "while" but Madison used "whilst."
Here in AZ, a perp shot and wounded a highway patrolman. A driver then stopped and fatally shot the perp, the used the patrolman's radio to call for help. Story here.
Roy Innis, NRA director and head of the Congress on Racial Equality, died on yesterday at age 82. Here's his obit story in the Washington Times. I'd spoken with his son Niger at the NRA meeting a few days before that, and he mentioned that Roy was in serious decline. A very good man.
It would be an interesting idea. It might fit in with making the whistle-blowing agents head of the Office of Inspector General for Justice. The OIG is charged with rooting out "fraud, waste, and abuse." That can be an interesting, if full time, assignment. And a lot of fun.
Right here. Number one is Steve Schreiner, very good pick (full disclosure, I've gone drinking with him). Silver Star, Bronze Star with V for valor, gun activist in Colorado and takes no s__t on the gun issue. Or on anything else.
UPDATE: Willes Lee is another veteran running for the board; his website is here. A pretty impressive resume', including graduation from West Point and rise to light colonel. Being a gun rights activist in Hawaii means he doesn't mind handling the impossible.
ANOTHER UPDATE: And then there's Adam Kraut, website here. Again, impressive. An attorney who runs a gun shop as well as practices firearms law, and loves NFA firearms.
If there are any candidate webpages I've missed, please point them out in comments. (My ballot issue of The American Rifleman came in while I was out of town, and I haven't yet gotten it from my daughter. As I recall, Lt. General Leroy Sisco mentioned he was up for election. He is founder of Military Warriors Support Foundation, an incredibly effective organization that centers upon providing houses to injured military and their families.
