Ironically, Supreme Court ruling on Chicago gun ban, McDonald v. Chicago, comes after two of the bloodiest weekends in Chicago

Oh, life’s little ironies.

On the Monday that the Supreme Court ruled 5-4 against a 28-year-old ban on handguns in Chicago and Oak Park, Illinois, the city of Chicago was recovering from a weekend shooting spree that left 29 shot and 3 dead.

And the weekend before, 52 were shot and 10 were killed.

Even by U.S. standards, that’s a bloody and violent weekend. You’d expect those kinds of figures coming out of Iraq or Afghanistan.

Chicago Mayor Daley, expecting the ruling, said he wasn’t going down without a fight, and intends to put into place all sorts of restrictions to make it tougher to buy guns and easier for police to know who has them.
