Mayor Daley reads the writing on the wall--and doesn't like what it says

As Days of Our Trailers points out, the Illinois State Rifle Associaton (ISRA) has wasted no time in moving to get Chicago's draconian gun ban overturned.

The U.S. Supreme Court says Americans have a right to own guns for self-defense and hunting, and the ruling will likely invalidate the 26-year-old ban on handguns in the City of Chicago.

In fact, the Illinois State Rifle Association has already filed a lawsuit challenging the Chicago ban. They filed the suit within 15 minutes of the high court's ruling.
Days of Our Trailers also points out that Mayor Daley is none too happy about the Heller ruling. This quote (from the Chicago Tribune) is the part that has Thirdpower (at Days of Our Trailers) especially amused:
"This decision really places those who are rich and those who are in power [to] always feel safe," Daley said. "Those who do not have the power do not feel safe, and that's what they're saying."
Personally, I like this quote (from CBS2 Chicago, linked to earlier in this blog post):
Speaking during a morning event at Navy Pier, Daley said any effort to strike down Chicago's handgun ban would likely increase taxes because of the increased need for police presence.
So how do you explain Chicago's insane taxes now, Mayor?

The CBS2 story also has a video clip of Daley's rant, for those with vast tolerance for foolishness.

In yet another article, this one in the Chicago Sun-Times, Daley rages over cities losing the ability to " . . . protect [them]selves from people who want guns in our society."
Why should we as a city not be able to protect ourselves from those who want guns in our society?
Not "protect themselves from" criminals, but from gun rights advocates. "Homegrown terrorists" like me, I guess.

By the way, Mayor, I bet you'll really love this.

He's coo-coo for criminals! Just LOVES them.

The turd sandwich says "those who are rich, and those who are in power are always feel safe. Those who are not have the power do not feel safe. And that's what they're saying. If you're elected officials you'll feel safe."

Isn't that precisely the "only ones" logic? People like fat controlling criminal bastard have their security guaranteed on our dime and piss on us then tell us it's raining.

"and I just don't understand how they came to this thinking and to (me?) I've very very disappointed."

Yep, nothing to bum some giant douche like being told he's not quite as special as he imagines himself to be.
