Earlier this month, the city of Chicago wrote a check for $399,950 to the Second Amendment Foundation, a gun rights group located in Bellevue, Wash. The check was a reimbursement for legal fees the foundation incurred in the McDonald v. Chicago case, which resulted in the United States Supreme Court overturning the citys ban on handguns.
The city lost that action, said Julianne Versnel, the foundations director of operations.

Ahhh, Man . . . bummer.
Why could it not have been an even $400,000?
Chicago PD has been notified to increase revenue collections to make up for the loss, women and minorities hardest hit.
You know the city also had expenses, probably more than the foundation’s fees, since, as we all know, the government tends not to spend efficiently.
So it really probably cost Chicago at least twice the $400K, probably way more than that.
And all wasted on a liberal dream of suspending rights fought and died for by past generations.

Rahm's already working on it:
There. I fixed.
Cash it quick before Chicago goes bankrupt!!
Cuz Rahm’s a cheap-azz...He probably had a couple thousand in his wallet and didn’t want to throw in an extra $50 in the envelope...
I bet it really sucked to be him and have to sign that check...hehehe, considering the next action he is proposing for the whole staet...
Someone uphill in the thread posted that little Chicken McNugget already...Good for them to spot that as well...
I think FR’s even got a dedicated thread for it too...
Somewhere, someone has to find a pic of Daley and pose him like they did Bush and caption it “Miss me yet???”
I’ll bet Mayor Twinkletoes’ hand cramped up more than once signing that check.
