In a truly free country, such as ours has been, the government gains its power from the consent of the governed. The governed is We the People. When the People have made it clear that there are laws that get no respect from the People and further they are unconstitutional then it is time for the law to go. In the case of Illinois we have a number of those laws, especially the gun laws.
Now there are several ways to make these laws go away, or at least have their effect neutralized. Let’s take a look at some of the ways. They can be repealed by the legislature. That isn’t going to happen anytime soon because the Chicago Machine rules with no consideration for the Constitution. Another way is for State’s Attorneys and law enforcement officials to refuse to enforce unconstitutional law. A third way is for sitting juries to refuse to convict when in their opinion they feel the law is not good.
