So an Illinois judge has ruled that undocumented immigrants have the right
00:03
to own a gun.
00:05
Us District Court Judge Sharon Coleman dropped gun charges against undocumented migrant
00:11
Eriberto Carvajal Flores. Oh,
00:13
that's, that's definitely a mouthful.
00:16
That's a Latino name right there.
00:18
He was charged with unlawfully possessing a firearm in Chicago in 2020
00:23
The charges were under a criminal code that makes it illegal
00:26
for undocumented immigrants to have guns.
00:28
The judge pointed out that Carvajal Flores's arrest was nonviolent.
00:33
He had no felony,
00:34
violent crime or weapon convictions because of this.
00:38
She said he shouldn't be deprived of his second amendment rights.
00:42
So obviously right wingers are mind blown right now.

Carvajal Frode said that he bought the gun in self defense during

protests. So the ruling follows the Supreme Court's decision in June

01:11
comply with the second amendment.

So the test is very broad nowadays.
01:17
Yeah, this image is really testing me.
01:20
Look at you like you're about to get shot right now.
01:23
Ok. So let's move on to our next story.
