Nope. Don't think so. The meeting is being held in a public, tax-payer funded building. But it does show that they don't really care about or respect the very things they swore an oath to uphold.

Illinois’s 720 ILCS 5/24-1 (the “Unlawful Use of Weapons” law) and 720 ILCS 5/24-1.6 (the “Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon” law) constitute a complete ban on the public carrying of firearms by law abiding citizens otherwise qualified to possess them in Illinois.They want to play hardball, OK, let's play hardball.
The effect of the Unlawful and Aggravated Unlawful Use of a Weapon law (the “Weapons Laws”) is, at a bare minimum, a plain violation of Plaintiffs’ Second Amendment rights. The harmful effects of this ban are severe, and its immediate forestallment imperative.
The 'Gun Lobby' would like to thank Mayor Emanuel and the City of Chicago for helping further the restoration of the Second Amendment to the Constitution.

"As you know, the President directed the Attorney General to form working groups with key stakeholders to identify common-sense measures that would improve Americans' safety and security while fully respecting Second Amendment rights," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Thursday.
Let's take bets on how desperate they're going to get in their attempts to keep even a few of the groups they've thrown under the bus the last three years.
"That process is well underway at the Department of Justice with stakeholders on all sides working through these complex issues. And we expect to have some more specific announcements in the near future."
Carney didn't say how soon those announcements would come, nor what they might entail.
CSGVNow actually reading the article, there's nothing about ''race' in there. So why even use the word?
Why? Because they've got nothing else left except for smear tactics. He's also jealous that Nugent actually has some musical talent.

"people traveling to the U.S. from overseas may experience additional screening at airports."
Soon to be expanded to domestic flights as well I'm sure. Especially for young, pretty women.
But don't worry about it. Just go back to your episode of 'American Idol'.
The ordinance admittedly was designed to make
gun ownership as difficult as possible. The City has legitimate,
indeed overwhelming, concerns about the prevalence
of gun violence within City limits. But the Supreme Court
has now spoken in Heller and McDonald on the Second
Amendment right to possess a gun in the home for selfdefense
and the City must come to terms with that reality.
Any regulation on firearms ownership must respect that
Reading more, the court realized that the Ordinance was designed to prohibit firearm ownership and to 'thumb their nose' at the SCOTUS and the court responded in kind. W/ the new range requirements already voted on, realizing they were going to lose and for the same reason, this is just going to lead to another round of lawsuits against the city.
So what are groups like the Brady Campaign, Violence Policy Center and the rest of the Joyce puppets saying about it?
Instead they're retweeting alleged incidents and anything else they can think of to avoid talking about the fact that the BATFE deliberately let thousands of firearms be smuggled to Mexico to arm narco-terrorists.
Joyce Foundation funded 'Media Matters' completely avoids the fact that Melson testified regurgitating the predetermined 'forum' headed by anti-gunners.

Illinois State Rifle Assoc. (ISRA)
Second Amendment Foundation (SAF)
National Rifle Association (NRA)
NRA Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA)
Then suddenly about 90% of the comments made (over 30) disappear and no further have been approved.
Note to the author. If you're going to jump onto a bandwagon that's already lost three of its wheels, at least know what you're talking about first.
UPDATE: About half the comments have returned. The interim comments/replies by Paul Heroux have been 'removed'. More info forthcoming.
UPDATE II: Some of Heroux's comments have been recovered. It gets even more pathetic:
IOW, he thought he knew more than he actually did, made the mistake of responding, got his @ss handed to him, the 'Reasoned Discourse' kicked in. Just like I called it.
And that's how we 'roll'.
All they're going to do is end up costing the taxpayers more money in court costs and legal fees.
