There is always hope for the pro-gun community in all states, the trick is that we have to fight for every inch we can get and that cost lots of money which the anti's know and have a vast treasure trove from other anti's.

The courts will be very busy with this stuff. Glad to hear that, hopefully we can push back hard enough to again say were all landlords of our own nation again!

They are doing a great job of convincing us were helpless. Were not helpless nor hopeless, just need to empower ourselves. Chick Fil A and Phil Robertsons Scandal should be all the fire starter we need to take back the day for all of us! Yes, both of those are rich folks but the support that they needed to rise above the Lib-chaff came from millions of regular people just like us! Just imagine if we turned that into an offense instead of just our defense???

In a matter of speaking, we are on the offensive. Or a counter offensive if you will. There have been more pro 2A rulings in my lifetime than for generations before. I don't see the opponents saying we are helpless. Rather the opposite, that we are the all powerful gun lobby, and they are David against us, the big hairy Goliath. We win when we stay focused and mentally disciplined.

Here is some analysis of Chicago's position by a very pro 2A lawyer.
