That’ll make them think twice about following Chicago’s lead.

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.

Love it. Meanwhile the Chicago, where guns are banned more or less, is a killing field of epic proportions.

I’d rather have it come out of the pockets of those that elect the likes of the Emanuels than us NRA members.

Extensive federal power works both ways, doesn't it?

The Democrats want their cake and eat it, too.

Keep those checks coming, Rahmbo! LOL!!!

(From the earlier McDonald case...)

"For a final touch of poetic justice the one time Chief of Staff for President Barack Obama now mayor of the City of Chicago is one of the people that had to sign the checks made out to the NRA to pay for legal fees. Had his arrogance and that of his advisers not been so great, and they accepted the initial decision of the court and not taken it to appeals court, they would have had far less to pay."

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.

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.

The SCOTUS have already ruled on this a couple times already, and they haven’t exactly been siding with Chicago.

Cities for a very long time have been paying the legal fees of the ACLU. The ACLU
then uses that money to fight against our Constitution and to blackmail small
town America into submission. Small towns cannot afford to fight back.

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!
