Saying they are “deeply disappointed” and “outraged” by a federal court ruling that “Chicago’s ordinance prohibiting licensed gun stores from operating in the city is unconstitutional,” Moms Demand Action issued a press release Tuesday decrying the decision.
“Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America is shocked that in a densely populated city struggling to keep children safe from gunfire, the court has dealt a serious blow to public safety by essentially encouraging more citizens to arm themselves,” the group said in its statement. “We firmly believe that loosening gun legislation is a step in the wrong direction, and we echo the Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, who ‘strongly disagrees’ with this ruling and said in a statement yesterday, ‘we need stronger gun safety laws, not increased access to firearms within the city.’”
The group reserved special criticism for “forces of the DC-based gun lobby to wield influence in Illinois.” It’s a curious objection in light of the Moms’ special interest alliance with Michael Bloomberg.
