The Chicago Sun-Times reports: < Chicagoans should be limited to one handgun for every eligible person living in a home — and gun dealers should be banned within the city limits — in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to shoot down the city’s handgun ban, the city’s top lawyer said on Tuesday. One day after Chicago’s strictest-in-the-nation handgun ban was rendered unenforceable, Corporation Counsel Mara Georges argued that it’s “critical to public safety” to at least draw the line on the number of handguns in Chicago.>
When you read something like this you may be tempted to ask, “which part of ‘shall not be infringed’ don’t these people understand?” But, that would be a mistake. It’s not that these gun-grabbing big-government Liberals don’t understand the U.S. Constitution, it’s that they don’t like it. After all, that’s the whole point of the “Living Constitution” bit.
Our betters don’t like being bound by constraints on government power, they like constraining us -- or as the City's lawyer puts it, “draw[ing] the line.” Our Founding Fathers had a term for this type of activity: “Tyranny.” They pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to overthrow it and secure liberty to their generation and ours, and the least that our generation of fathers can do is teach the facts of liberty and tyranny to our children around the dinner table, so that they don’t grow up to be either the clueless victims of tyranny, or the perpetrators of it.
