Mcdonald vs. The City Of Chicago Decision Any Day Now
By Aaron Zelman
Founder and Director of Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership.
Washington, DC –-(AmmoLand.com)- A decision on the landmark Supreme Court case “McDonald vs. The City of Chicago” is expected by the end of June.
As with the previous “Heller vs. District of Columbia” decision some two years earlier, educated gun owners are on pins and needles regarding McDonald’s outcome.
On the Internet there are many articulate evaluations of the oral arguments the Justices heard in McDonald in March. It is assumed that a favorable 5-4 victory for gun owners is in the wind.
The question remains: How definitive a victory will it be?
In Justice Scalia’s majority commentary on the Heller decision there was unfortunately enough “wiggle room” in his language to allow D.C. to immediately pile layer upon layer of taxation, licensing, and bureaucratic barriers that the D.C. ban on ownership of a handgun in one’s home is still effectively in place.
No one can expect Richard Daley, Chicago’s authoritarian Mobster Mayor to concede with any less of a struggle.
No, McDonald will unfortunately not reverberate all that rapidly and positively in the huge urban areas. If you live in San Francisco, Boston, New York City, Chicago, or any other bastion of socialist liberalism, you’ll be made to jump through every hoop imaginable to register a handgun to just keep in your home, much less carry on your person.
What every pro-gun organization, from the smallest to the largest, must do, if a McDonald decision sides with our cause, is to legalistically and philosophically go on the ruthless offensive with every lawful means possible.
Lawsuits must fly.
Squeaky clean plaintiffs must step forward to take the heat. It will not be enjoyable. But the tragic alternative, armed resistance towards an intolerably tyrannical government, would be unimaginably worse.
To our knowledge, JPFO is the only established Second Amendment organization that has directly and unequivocally come out and called for the complete destruction of “gun control”. In our award winning documentaries “2A Today for the U.S.A.” and the controversial (but inarguable) “No Guns for Negroes”, JPFO explains how any form of “gun control” is a direct threat to our freedom. JPFO has, for more than twenty years, provided the “intellectual ammunition” needed to win the hearts and minds of our fellow Americans. But we have to use it to be effective.
What we must never forget is that the Richard Daleys, the Dianne Feinsteins, the Chuckie Schumers, and the Michael Bloombergs are not going to go away. Until “gun control” is completely destroyed in America, there will always be some unctuous politician, dictatorial police chief, or un-elected bureaucrat striving to smother your freedom with licensing, fees, hidden taxes, arduous and intrusive background checks, and (most dangerously) actual firearms registration.
Sadly, far too many of these police statists are Jews. JPFO was founded to take on these dangerous deceivers. JPFO can say what other pro-gun groups cannot. JPFO cannot be seriously labeled “anti-Semitic” without eliciting howls of derision. JPFO confronts and condemns the “Bagel Brained Jews” who are attempting to lead our nation into George Orwell’s nightmare.
JPFO is now completing a new documentary film titled “No Guns for Jews”. Some Jews, like Dianne Feinstein and Charles Schumer, are incurable authoritarians. But other Jewish politicians and policy makers can hopefully be reached. When this film is completed with your support, we ask you to give it as wide a presentation as possible…and silence Jewish gun prohibitionists.
Help JPFO destroy “gun control”. Please take a personal role in preserving freedom in America. Hopefully, we will celebrate a McDonald victory, but then we must strike while the iron is hot. Whatever the Supreme Court’s decision actually is, the much needed “intellectual ammo” from JPFO will help you battle our very misguided enemies.
Dianne Feinstein calls it a “culture war”. It is a war that we, not she and her ilk, must win. Failure is not an option.
Jews For The Preservation Of Firearms Ownership Mission is to destroy “gun control” and to encourage Americans to understand and defend all of the Bill of Rights for everyone. Those are the twin goals of Wisconsin-based Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership (JPFO). Founded by Jews and initially aimed at educating the Jewish community about the historical evils that Jews have suffered when they have been disarmed, JPFO has always welcomed persons of all religious beliefs who share a common goal of opposing and reversing victim disarmament policies while advancing liberty for all.
