$1.5 Million and Counting – The Taxpayer’s Burden of Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s and the City of Chicago’s Refusal to Recognize Second Amendment Rights

Fairfax, Va. – The United States District Court in the Northern District of Illinois has ordered the City of Chicago to reimburse $940,000 in legal expenses incurred by the NRA. The NRA had challenged Chicago's ban on gun sales within city limits in Benson v. City of Chicago. The Benson case was consolidated into Illinois Association of Firearm Retailers v. City of Chicago and that case challenged five aspects of Chicago's law: (1) the ban on any form of carriage; (2) the ban on gun stores; (3) the ban on firing ranges; (4) the ban on self-defense in garages, porches, and yards; and (5) the ban on keeping more than one gun in an operable state.

This is the second time that the City of Chicago has been ordered to reimburse legal fees in a suit sponsored by the NRA. The first was following the U.S. Supreme Court's landmark ruling in McDonald v. City of Chicago in which Chicago was ordered to reimburse the NRA more than $600,000.

Doubling down and going full retard didn't work. Anyone want to bet on whether they'll triple down?

Of course they will. Politicians don't worry about other peoples money, only their own.

They'll do it again and again and again, it's not their money they don't care about that . Not because they're stupid , they'll do it again because they believe sooner or later they'll find some contemptible, worthless, politically positioned judge that will rule in their favor .

I wonder how financially stable Chicago is. A couple more of these along with there crime rate and they may go the way of Detroit...
That would actually be a step up. At least Detroit's police chief acknowledges that an armed citizenry curbs crime. Chicago's police superintendent thinks there needs to be more gun control laws every time dozens of people are shot in his city during the course of a weekend.

I don't even live near Chicago but I'm sure I'm paying for it one way or another. And, he called for new gun laws last weekend so it's not like they are learning any kind of lesson.
