Shelby county TN tried to do that to Memphis. They just came back with more political and legal power and took the county back over again.

The Texas New Dealers delt gun owners a crushing blow. We need to view this as a battle where we are all brothers its not just a regional problem.
That was a long time ago, but yes, we still have anti gun azz hats running around (though they are a rare sight around here). But, I do view the majority of the problem being in a few select regions that dictate the majority of the state. LA, San Francisco, Chicago, D.C., NYC, Albany, much of NJ, ect. You have to admit, if those places just disappeared, we would have more gun rights and leaa anti gun BS.

I think they could, if the majority of the state wanted to (and did something about it), What could Chicago do if many of the counties stopped sending them any money, and possibly cut off roads that go into and out of the city (if they really wanted to screw them over)?

Just one county, most likely not. That would probably end just like the Shelby County vs Memphis thing.
