Chick-Fil-A Supporters To Turn Out For ‘Appreciation Day’

CHICAGO (CBS) — The culture clash over Chick-Fil-A could come to a head on Wednesday, with supporters in Chicago and around the country turning out for an “appreciation day” first proposed by former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.

Nationwide as of Wednesday morning, about 582,000 people planned to go to a Chick-Fil-A location and order something for Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day.

Meanwhile, Republicans in Chicago say they will also file a formal complaint at City Hall against Ald. Proco “Joe” Moreno (1st), who wants to block the restaurant from moving into his ward because of the company’s position on gay marriage and gay rights.

Another chink in the armor of the anti-gun assholes in Chicago just got handed to them.

What part of “shall not be infringed” do they not get?

Federal judge kicks out part of Chicago’s gun law

Ban on permits for those convicted of unlawful use of weapon is called unconstitutional

By Dahleen Glanton and Liam Ford, Chicago Tribune reporters

Chicago’s firearm ordinance took another blow Tuesday when a federal judge ruled that the section banning permits for people convicted of unlawful use of a weapon is vague and unconstitutional.

The city must now decide whether to appeal the ruling or rewrite the part of its gun ordinance that bars individuals convicted of even misdemeanor offenses from possessing a firearm in their home for self-defense.

The ruling came in a lawsuit filed by Shawn Gowder, who claimed his constitutional right to bear arms was violated when he was denied a firearm permit two years ago because of a misdemeanor conviction for possessing a gun on a public street.

The lawsuit, backed by the National Rifle Association, is one of at least five cases pending against the city’s gun ordinance, which was passed in 2010 just days after theU.S. Supreme Court struck down the city’s 28-year ban on handguns. The Illinois State Rifle Association also filed a brief in support of Gowder.

Chicago has a handgun ban, in case you didn’t know. Thanks to that little fact, there have been 125 homicides over the summer, more than the KIAs in Iraq. Yep, you read that correctly. With escalating violence and a corrupt regime, maybe we should just pull out of Chicago and let the gang members take over that crappy city. The insurgents there have won. Withdraw the police now!

From Victor Davis Hanson:

Every Democratic Presidential and VP nominee of the last thirty years, with the exception of Al Gore (law school drop out), has been a lawyer—Obama (s) and Biden, Kerry and Edwards, Gore and Lieberman, Clinton (s) and Gore, Dukakis and Bentsen, and Mondale and Ferraro.

And the drooling on the left continues. That bitch Boxer opens her salivating clap trap to spew forth more bullshit than ought to be permissible from any politician.

Moonbat Extremist Babs Boxer: Saracuda Is Way Outside the Mainstream

This is rich. Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) has denounced Sarah Palin as “way outside” the mainstream because Saracuda believes in the sanctity of human life and is skeptical of the global warming hoax.

In contrast, Boxer’s supposedly more mainstream views include support for the ghastly form of execution known as partial birth abortion; coercive taxpayer funding of abortion; homosexual “marriage”; superior legal status for blacks, homosexuals, and transvestites; granting Social Security benefits to illegal aliens; amnesty for illegal aliens, including those who have committed felonies; providing federal funds to sanctuary cities that openly flout US immigration laws; imposing costly burdens on power companies; constitutional rights for foreign terrorists; and lawsuits blaming gun manufacturers for shootings, an attempt to use trial lawyers to preempt the Second Amendment.
