    Gun Ban Obama's Favorite Mayor Gun Ban Daley (Chicago, Illinois) says send Gun Manufacturers Lawsuit (already dismissed by SCOTUS) to World Court ...

    April 27, 2010


    BY FRAN SPIELMAN City Hall Reporter

    Six years after the state Supreme Court dismissed his $433 million lawsuit against the gun industry, Mayor Daley today called for a change of venue — to the World Court normally reserved for disputes between nations and crimes against humanity.
    Wrapping up the sixth annual Richard J. Daley Global Cities Forum, Daley convinced more than a dozen of his counterparts from around the world to approve a resolution urging "redress against the gun industry through the courts of the world" in The Hague.
    "This is coming from international mayors. They're saying, 'We’re tired of your guns, America. ... We don't want those anymore because guns kill and injure people,' " Daley told a news conference at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
    "If we ship over poison to a country, don’t you think we should be responsible for it? That’s what they’re saying: 'Be responsible for what you manufacture and sell in my country.' ... You have to think outside the box. You have to be [aggressive] about how you protect your people."
    Mexico City Mayor Marcelo Ebrard Casauban noted that the Mexican government is waging a brutal war against drug cartels that get “85 percent” of their weapons from the United States.
    "The U.S. government says, 'We cannot do a lot of things to stop this,'" Casauban said. "We should take actions with legal effects in order to stop this trade between the United States and Mexico."
    Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter acknowledged that using the World Court is a long-shot. But, he said “you never know until you try” and it’s worth a try to counter the political muscle and money of the National Rifle Association.
    "We have to do different things. The political establishment in many state capitals — and certainly in Washington — [is] so deathly afraid of the NRA that people cannot make the right decision for their own constituents," Nutter said.
    He added, "People are being killed every day in the United States of America with illegal weapons. I love the 2nd Ammendment. [But], I have a 1st Ammendment right not to be shot."
    Gun violence also dominated a panel discussion earlier in the day at the Global Cities Forum.
    It happened when Daley argued that Chicagoans have to "open our hearts and our pocketbooks" to save another generation from being lost.
    "We don't say, 'Come to us.' Government has to go to them. They’re isolated. Maybe they have a substance abuse problem. The grandmother is 70 years old and raising grandchildren. ... We have to intervene in a different way we never have before. We have to have more homes for children, such as Boys and Girls Town to help them at earlier ages,” the mayor said.
    "This idea of losing a 14-year-old to gangs and drugs in America is unacceptable. It is not a criteria we should ever live with."
    Daley’s 1998 lawsuit accused the gun industry of creating a public nuisance by using irresponsible suburban gun shops to flood the city with guns that traffickers supplied to criminals.
    The city and the county sought reimbursement for policing, emergency services and prosecutions tied to gun violence using nuisance laws normally reserved for polluters. In 2004, the state Supreme Court refused to create, what it called "an entirely new species of public nuisance liability."

    He is piece of work alright. I imagine comrade Bloomberg ranks right up there with him. Birds of a feather you might say. By the way as far as I am concerned the world court can stick it where the sun don't shine. This is America not Red China. Of course I am sure the little dictator in Chicago does not know the difference.

    It's amazing to think that he considers us criminals for carrying legally and thinks it's alright to pursue illegal channels to ban our rights. This is the type of representative that needs to be removed from office for blatant disregard of the Constitution.

    Mr. Daley is a Hypocrite of the highest order. While calling for the for the elimination of all guns in the hands of the citizens of Chicago, he surrounds himself with Police, State Police and armed guards to provide for his own protection. He's an elitist, fancying himself better than those he was elected to serve. I hope the voters in Chicago can muster enough votes to counter the paid-off machine votes and illegal votes to have this guy put to the side of the curb once and for all. Like Iran and Afghanistan, Chicago needs to take command of its own destiny and make it happen for themselves.

    His father was the mayor for many years. Between the two of them they have had a strangle hold on the windy city for a long, long time.
