Chicago Just Can't Seem To Get Any Anti-Gun Wins In The Courts These Days

This one was a beat down on both the First and Second amendment fronts. My favorite part was where the kids lawyer asked how could the schools have a zero tolerance policy banning images of weapons and violence when both of those things were present in school issued textbooks in the various History classes.
Apparently the Schools lawyers had no response to that.
Which brings to mind, to me at least, the old Latin Quote: "Inter Armas Enim Silent Leges"

Which translates out to "In The Face Of Arms, The Law Is Silent"

Ever since Heller, Chicago has become the front lines of the legal battle over gun rights. They're dragging their feet and kicking and screaming, but they keep on losing in the courts. Which in turn will set precedents for future legal battles in other parts of the country. A lot of us may not be around to see the future benefits of the these current fights, but this just goes back to what I've said for a while. The Anti-gun people didn't achieve their victories overnight. They kept hammering away wherever they could and moved on from their losses to obtain their victories.

The pro-gun camp has to do the same thing. We have to be persistent, just like a bad, annoying cough.
