#BullyMoms: Not anti-gun, Anti-freedom

The recent ruling repealing the ban on Federal Firearms Licensed gun dealers in Chicago is an obvious statement of the facts. If you can’t buy a gun, you can’t possibly exercise your right to keep and bear arms. Only a complete moron would argue otherwise. In fact, the reason that gun sellers are banned in Chicago is to prevent as many Chicago residents as possible from keeping and bearing arms.

But guess who pops up to deplore the ruling.

U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang has ruled that Chicago’s ordinance prohibiting licensed gun stores from operating in the city is unconstitutional. The court’s decision reportedly cited the city’s failure to prove that banning licensed gun dealers has a significant impact in reducing gun violence. The ruling would also decriminalize many private transfers of firearms between individuals inside city limits.

Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is shocked that in a densely populated city struggling to keep children safe from gunfire, the court has dealt a serious blow to public safety by essentially encouraging more citizens to arm themselves. We firmly believe that loosening gun legislation is a step in the wrong direction, and we echo the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who ‘strongly disagrees’ with this ruling and said in a statement yesterday, “we need stronger gun safety laws, not increased access to firearms within the city.” (PDF Warning)

Wow. They just put it out there, don’t they? They don’t try to hide their hatred of gun ownership at all. All the previous gun ban groups have tried to downplay their hope that purchasing a gun should be as near impossible as can be arranged, but Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. comes right out and says it.

Every single firearm transfer in a Federally licensed gun store in Chicago would occur only after the person buying received an Illinois Firearm Owner’s ID (FOID) card AND the federally required background check. This is exactly what Moms have been Demanding. Yet even this is too “liberal” for them. The thought that an ordinary Chicago resident could wander into a gun store, waive his State issued FOID at the guy behind the counter, and be sold a functional firearm just horrifies these women.

They think that at the very least, you should be required to get in your car and drive to the suburbs to buy your evil slaughter tool. Too poor to own a car? Don’t have public transportation that will take you to the evil slaughter tool pushing salesman? Too bad. Moms Demand Action, a wholly owned subsidiary of Michael Bloomberg, Inc. says no guns for you.

They don’t just hate your gun. They hate your freedom as well.

  1. “Don’t have public transportation that will take you to the evil slaughter tool pushing salesman?” – I suspect that even transporting (nevermind carrying) a firearm or other deadly weapon on public transit in IL is very illegal.

  2. Probably true. I hadn’t thought of that. But according to the #BullyMoms, that’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

  4. I seem to recall that it IS illegal to take a handgun onto Chicago city buses.

    The reason I remember this is because one particularly ignorant city official defended the ban by claiming that handguns could go off from bumps and jostling that occurs in a crowd.

    I may not have known too much about firearms at the time, but I knew that there wouldn’t be a market for guns as crappy as that.

  5. I just completed the IL concealed carry course and the answer to that question was addressed by the LEO’s teaching it. Possession of a firearm on public transportation is legal as long as the gun is unloaded and locked in a case or in a chipping container designed for the transportation of a firearm. So, if you go to the gun store and purchase a pistol and leave it in the box it came in and carry the box into public transpo, you are within your rights.

    Those silly moms never seem to let facts get in the way of anything. Your rights matter little, only their misinformed agenda. They don’t even know wtf they are complaining about 1/2 the time, only that “guns are bad, therefore”…. It is a tired meme at this point. My wife is a “mom” of 3, she owns and practices safe firearm handling as do I. A dad of 3 and a US Army veteran. MDA can go pivot on the mid digit. Tired of those disgusting hags.

  8. I refer to that Bloomberg group as Moms Demand Disarmament.

  9. Shannon Watts should be packing away a lot of Bloomberg money if she gets paid by the number of stupid press releases she puts out. It is always interesting that MDA or MAIG never seem to want any comments or anyone to consider the other side of any issue. Logic and discussion never seem to part of such organizations, Do you think they may have something to hide?
