Chicago loses some of its unconstitutional Gun Laws ..America Reasserts it Constitutional Rights.
(H/T: "Say Uncle")

A federal judge has sided with the Second Amendment Foundation on key points of an on-going legal action against the City of Chicago that challenges the city's municipal code regarding gun ranges inside the city. 

"Every day on which Chicago loses some of its unconstitutional laws," observed attorney Alan Gura, who represents SAF in this litigation, "is a better day than the one before. This latest decision brings Chicago that much closer to the rest of America, where responsible, law-abiding people can practically access gun ranges for safety training and recreation. We are studying our options for improving this positive outcome." 
 In her ruling, Judge Kendall noted that Chicago police officials "admitted that they had no data or empirical evidence that any criminal impact would occur due to the presence of a firing range, or that it would be lessened by placing ranges in manufacturing districts." Indeed, plaintiff's expert Lorin Kramer "testified that he was unaware of any location throughout the country where crime increased as a result of a gun range in that location." 

This is A Good Day for America.

While the "gun violence" daily exercised by drug gangs in Chicago has been a serious problem , the continued efforts of the Chicago mayor R.E. to restrict access to self-defensive firearms has undermined the ability of law-abiding citizens to take control of their streets.

Today, they  have full access to close-by, local shooting ranges where they can practice their control of entirely legal firearms.

This may give them an advantage of over gang-bangers who notoriously practice "Prey & Spray"  (sic) tactics during street-level gun-fights, often resulting in the unintended accidental deaths of nearby innocents.  Casualties for which the drug dealers seemingly hold no remorse.

It is too soon to tell whether the determination of local legal firearms owners to protect their neighborhoods will be successful, but one thing is clear:

With access to a place to hone their shooting skills, the "neighborhood" has just increased its ability to enhance accuracy with their newly acquired firearms.  Very likely it's a metaphorical "Take Back Your Neighborhood" effort which will yield mixed results; be prepared for the likelihood that the Hood's population will drop real soon.

The Lambs will become Sheep-dogs.  Some of this "bad business" is coming home to roost.

It's their neighborhood, and they WILL take it back!

With it's thousands of shootings each year, it seems like people have no trouble at all obtaining a handgun in Chicago. When the police do pick them up with an illegal firearm, the courts usually give them a slap on the wrist, and that is when the court is being tough.
