JPFO Alert: 7th Circuit OKs Gun Bans for the Illusion of Safety

Today's JPFO Alert notes that while disarming decent, peaceable citizens for the "safety" of the public is bad enough, disarming us for the illusion of safety is even more unforgivable.

Benjamin Franklin is widely quoted as having said some variation of "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety." How much stronger his contempt would have been for those willing to give up liberty for the illusion of safety.

What if some white people said that they would "feel safer" if there were no black people in their neighborhoods? Would that justify racial segregation?

BTW, Maryland has an assault weapons ban, magazine capacity limits, and requires a permit to own a handgun. It is also a "may issue" state, so the local authorities have broad discretion, and they can deny any application for a permit.

Ask people in Baltimore how safe they feel now.
