    U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit Judge Diane Sykes did away with a trio of harsh restrictions


    A judge on President-elect Donald Trump’s shortlist of potential Supreme Court nominees just struck down three Chicago gun laws which made it harder for residents to learn proper firearm handling techniques.

    U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit Judge Diane Sykes did away with a trio of harsh restrictions on gun ranges enacted by officials after a court struck down the city’s total ban on ranges in 2011.

    Under the scheme struck down in 2011, city officials were working to make it as hard as possible for law-abiding residents to own guns by requiring permit holders to undergo training at gun ranges which they’d outlawed in the city limits.

    After a court ruled that they couldn’t prohibit ranges outright in McDonald v. Chicago, the Chicago officials passed regulations making it difficult for ranges to open by stipulating that they couldn’t be placed within 500 feet of residential districts, schools, or places of worship or within 100 feet of one another.

    Arm all BLM in Chicago, drop pallets of confiscated guns on corners so they can just put paid to the whole lot of human cockroaches. Make America Great Again!

    Guns aren't banned in Chicago.

    To own a gun you simply must first take a class at an approved range

    Sorry, no classes this year because we shut down and banned all the ranges

    Liberal logic.
