    Thanks for the work and the update, Val. I'll chip in a little for the project. What we need is accountability for those assholes when they pull this shit.

    How can they not expect a high profile lawsuit from this action? I suspect someone with time and money might just take a gun into a park to get arrested and get the ball rolling. It's obvious the city would lose the case.

    My take is Kenney is well aware of that by way of his legal department and is pushing the order anyhow in order to appear that he is getting tough and doing something.It may impress and fool some of the dumbasses who voted for him....leave it up to whomever to burn through a bundle of money in a lawsuit.

    Thanks for the hard work. Every time I get the email from the Amazon Smile program I am reminded how donations make an actual difference.

    Also, when he gets spanked, it gives him the "moral high ground" of saying, "See, I am trying to prevent gun violence, but the state laws are preventing me from doing it. We need to change the laws."
