Judge Rules Illegal
Immigrants Can Carry Guns

Still from Fox video

The absurd appears to be alive and well when hearing about a judge's decision to make an illegal immigrant able to legally own and carry a firearm - and this too, from an Illinois judge.
From Yahoo.com News:

Last week, U.S. District Judge Sharon Johnson Coleman in the Northern District of Illinois ruled that a federal prohibition on illegal immigrants owning firearms is unconstitutional as applied to defendant Heriberto Carbajal-Flores. Scott Sweetow, a 30-year veteran of the ATF, told Fox News the decision is "hugely problematic" for members of law enforcement.

"This really throws a complete grenade into the enforcement of federal firearms laws by specifically ATF because of how far-reaching this is," said Sweetow, a former deputy assistant director at the agency's Office of Strategic Intelligence and Information.

The district court's controversial ruling in U.S. v. Carbajal-Flores has divided gun rights activists and inflamed debate over where courts should draw the line on firearms regulations in a post-Bruen world. That landmark 2022 Supreme Court decision established a new standard to determine whether a law violates the Second Amendment, requiring judges to conduct a historical analysis and find it consistent with the nation's tradition of firearm regulations to be held constitutional.

This is hard to believe when considering that good citizens continue to be harassed over their Second Amendment rights, such as simple ownership and right to carry. There is a serious odor of misappropriated judgemental altruism as well as the potential setting of a dangerous precedent.

Sweetow said Coleman's decision was "illogical." He described how a friend of his, a law-abiding businessman who lives in Chicago, cannot legally carry a firearm in the city even though he has an Illinois state firearms owner ID card.

"He has not been able to get a permit to have a firearm, but yet an illegal alien, who fired his gun recklessly … he's allowed to have a firearm. And there's just something illogical and wrong about that," Sweetow said.

With the ongoing battle against those who would like to see all guns 'disappeared' we see a ridiculous decision aimed at possibly multiple thousands of persons 'invading' our nation, with in most cases no easily traceable background other than in numerous instances a criminal past linked to prison or gangs - most certainly no viable claim to citizenship. Our constitution was written for citizens of our Republic - not for any and all denizens of this planet.

It is anticipated that this will be appealed and some sanity resumed.
