Daley Announces Strict Gun Measures, Disdain for Bill of Rights
"Everybody has a right to sue."

After the Supreme Court affirmed this week in McDonald v. Chicago that Second-Amendment rights for individuals do indeed apply even within a 25-mile radius of organic grocers and a liberal city council, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley went to work to subvert his constituents' newfound right to self defense.
Daley goes on to explain how successful banning guns has been up until now:
Last weekend in the allegedly gun-free paradise of Chicago? 54 shot, 10 dead in gun violence.
Daley was unable to include in the bill a requirement that citizens insure their guns or restrict each gunowner to only one gun, for fear of legal challenges, but added "everyone has a right to sue." Wel, it's nice he recognizes that right.
