Rahm and Chicago tax payers make another contribution to the Second Amendment Foundation

Nice to see a Democrat Mayor making another big financial contributions to the Second Amendment Foundation (SAF) ... again. Hopefully they'll at least send him a nice T-Shirt, size x-small, trimmed with lace.

This time, a check for $590,000 to cover the legal fees and court costs for trying to ban all shooting ranges and gun stores from the city, via "cute" zoning law changes (Ezell II, yes, it's the second time they lost on the same case.)

All because the aldermen and idiot mayor either can't be bothered to read the Constitution, court decisions they lose ... or they just don't think the law applies to them.

So far, since 2012 when they lost McDonald v. Chicago, Rahm has signed checks for a total of over $5.4 million just for the winners legal fees and court costs to the SAF, NRA and the Illinois State Rifle Assn. because he and the aldermen don't think Supreme Court decisions apply to Chicago. Worse news for tax payers, there are 5 more suits in the courts that they will also lose.

What the city's legal costs were is not available and probably won't ever be made public. But they hired three large firms to handle the cases, all with multiple $400+ an hour senior litigators. Alan Gura beat them all like a red headed rented step-mule, (to mix metaphors).

But at least they sure made it safer on the CTA and the street, didn't they?

Makes you wonder how many Fireman and Cop pensions or School Librarians all the money they piss away on a lost cause would pay for? Wouldn't it be nice, if just once, when these weasels screw up like this, it came out of their pocket instead of ours?

4. Every bit as sweet as when we let their gun "buy back" pay for our new youth rifles

The fact that every check like this gets wide spread exposure in main stream media really ticks them off, but they never learn. In a few months there will be another big check.

They changed their buy back a years back, when Daley was still in office, after the ISRA organized a turn in of a 4+ year accumulation of rusty old and broken junk; "no questions asked" for $100 Visa gift cards per "gun".

Several groups went to five different "buy back" stations. We had enough total crap, that we were able to buy a dozen new Ruger 10/22s at a LGS with a sense of humor and irony that gave us a great deal for the gift cards. The rifles went for our youth shooting programs at the range near Kankakee.

Of course we issued a press release with pictures, thanking Mayor Daley, the City of Chicago and it's taxpayers for buying new guns for our program.
