The SCOTUS has just voted 5-4 that the 2nd Amendment of the Constitution applies to the states effectively ruling the ban on firearms in Chicago unconstitutional. Hopefully this will trickle down through the entire IL FOID system but I am not holding my breath.
What is also significant here is the 5-4 split – that is 4 judges do not believe the Bill of Rights restrains the states. That is surely something to be concerned about! Especially if President Obama has the opportunity to name another judge to the court where the retiree is one of the 5 that voted correctly.
Not that we needed another reason to make sure President Obama is a one-term engagement – but here it is anyway.
