Heller Decision is Continues Making a Difference.

The Village Council of  Winnetka, Illinois voted unanimously to repeal the Council’s 20-year-old handgun ban.  This is the third Chicago area township to drop an unconstitutional complete ban on handguns following the U.S. Supreme Court decision last summer in the District of Columbia vs. Heller case.  The Court held that the right to keep and bear arms is an individual right to be exercised by any American who wishes to.

Chicago itself is still defying the decisson and is in a court battle with the NRA.  It seem Mayor Richard Daley would rather waste taxpayer money fighting a loosing battle than allow American citizens to exercise God given rights.  My favorite quote on this subject comes from Steve Chapman who wrote for “America’s Frist Freedom” an NRA publication Feb. 2009 issue,  “The city, however, notes that the nation’s capital is a federal enclave, and that the court did not say states must respect the Second Ammendment.  That’s true.  The court’s ruling also did not say that China is in Asia, which doesn’t make it part of South America.”

What part of “Shall not be infringed” do they not understand?

I met Dick Heller at the Shot Show 2009.  Here is a man who has a passion to protect our Second Amendment Rights.  Below is an update on Heller II.  It’s time to stand up and protect your rights, join one of the pro-gun groups, or donate to the Heller foundation, or better yet, do more.heller
