A federal court is ordering the city of Chicago to pay the National Rifle Association nearly $1 million in legal fees.

Bwahahahahahahaha! Wheeze..... Bwahahahahahaha!
They should give Rahm a lifetime membership card...he’s more than paid his dues...
I like that, make it an honorary membership.
That’ll make them think twice about following Chicago’s lead.
Won’t happen, until they fight this all the way to the SCOTUS.
“Wont happen, until they fight this all the way to the SCOTUS.”
Yeah, and let it collect a big amount of interest for the NRA....OK libs, time for ANOTHER attack on the Second Amendment.
As delicious as this appears, it further allows the gun-grabbers to leverage residents (money isn’t generated by government!) against 2A.
Taxes will be increased because the City of Chicago will stand adamantly against RTKBA. Local residents will side WITH the city government to mitigate their tax burden.
Sad, but true. the ultimate alternative is for “real patriots” to avoid City-of-Chicago completely until such time they recognize the full constitutional rights of visitors, 2A not with standing (e.g.; 4A, 5A, 14A, etc.). Btu, the number must be substantial; in the line of reducing vistor-number by ^more than 1MM people^ per season.
Y’all don’t show up, what does Rahm do?
“Hey Rahm, how you like those apples. LOL! “
Not like it’s his money. Tyrants can always get more of your money to use to fight hard to take away more of your rights. Congratulations people of Chicago, you got the messy end of the stick again.
Lots of typo’s. Sorry. Working from work...
Love it. Meanwhile the Chicago, where guns are banned more or less, is a killing field of epic proportions.
WOW Democrat Sen Kay Hagan of NC on the senate floor talking about her husband and son with guns and duck hunting
I’d rather have it come out of the pockets of those that elect the likes of the Emanuels than us NRA members.
The Democrats want their cake and eat it, too.
(From the earlier McDonald case...)
That should make libtards head explode....
Too bad it will be mosty a hissing sound of air escaping....
And a great big EFF YOU!!! to Rahm “Ballerina” Emmanuel.
Pay up, Rahm you scum.
unless there is a demand they post a bond to ensure payment. At that point the money will be in the bank earning interest.
That was poetic justice.
I wonder if Rahm will just pay this or inflate his ego and take another chance.
“Taxes will be increased because the City of Chicago will stand adamantly against RTKBA.”
It doesn’t really matter anymore what the City thinks. Most of their ordinances have been slapped down and overruled by the state of Illinois. I think they have a couple restrictions that still stand (assault weapon ban and one on mags over 15 rounds), but otherwise, the city has no say in the matter.
Wonder how many extra full time police officers could have been put on the streets in high crime districts with that 1.6 mil?
SCOTUS will rule “infringement” equivalent to a tax if the local residents agree.
Benn in Chi-town and done that.
He doesn’t care what losing these cases cost his constituents. It’s not his money.
If he had to pay the NRA out of his own pocket, he’d quit the gun bans yesterday.
He’s just another statist jerk, it’s all about power, never principle.
Well said, he’s definitely a statist jerk.
Precisely... The subliterate nitwits that enable fascist Progressives should have to pay directly out of their own pockets. It’s the only way it will ever register with these imbeciles.
I don’t think Chicago depends a whole lot on tourism.
I hear about all this violence but I really don’t see it and I’m on the streets alot in all neighborhoods at all hours.
They elected him because they wanted gun control so I don’t think they mind paying.
I don’t hear the pols in Illinois complaining about state’s rights.
Do you read the paper or watch any news?
Please tell us what you are doing on the streets in all neighborhoods at all hours?
So nice to have some good news...
The SCOTUS have already ruled on this a couple times already, and they haven’t exactly been siding with Chicago.
It's bully tactics are not welcome and the ACLU has been silent for a very long time, Why?
Because there's a Communist in the WH doing more damage than the ACLU ever dreamed of.
Oh, you can count on them being back once the RATs are trapped and disposed of in 2014/16.
Expect all hell to break loose in American courts once again.
Great job NRA!
I see the news,I just don’t see all the violence while living my life here I guess I’m living dangerously.
