Chicago Gets Serious About Sky-High Murder Rate By Banning WESTERN COWGIRL PLAYSET

Amazon.com will not deliver a toy cowgirl playset to Chicago residents, apparently because of a municipal law in the city forbidding toy firearms.

The hot pink ensemble — “everything a kid needs to be a ‘real’ Western cowgirl!” — comes with a child-size cowgirl hat, a holster festooned with a silhouetted horse and rider and a six-pointed badge with a shirt clip and space for a name.

There’s also a silver and pink cap gun among the accessories.

Free, one-day shipping is available. The price is $35.99.

However, Amazon explains to Chicago residents: “This item cannot be shipped to your selected location.”

The law upon which Amazon relies to refuse sales of the cowgirl playset is presumably §4-144-190 of the Chicago Municipal Code. The ordinance, titled “Replica firearms and pellet guns” bans the possession and transfer of “any device, object or facsimile made of plastic, wood, metal or any other material, that a person could reasonably perceive as an actual firearm but that is incapable of being fired or discharged.” The strict law specifically encompasses lighters, camera and mobile phone cases — but makes an exception for certain antique firearm replicas (and for paint pellet guns at paintball parks).

Violators of the law can be fined up to $750 and imprisoned for as long as six months for each offense.

Murders should really drop now.

I hope we have once again reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts. — Ronald Reagan
