What's up?? Where are all of the complaints about 'unelected, activist judges' overturning 'the will of the people'??? This judge is doing the EXACT same thing as the judge who recently overturned Utah's ban on same-sex marriage - ruling that a law passed by a lower entity (state or local government) was in violation of the US Constitution and invalidating that law.

jpcooper - Funny, earlier today you were arguing 'state's rights' when it came to same-sex marriage. Shouldn't the people of Chicago, Illinois be able to entrust their lawmakers to decide their gun laws for themselves? BOTH Federal judges ruled (correctly, in my opinion) that local/state bans violated the US Constitution and invalidated those bans, so what's the difference? Is it just that you liked one ruling and not the other?
