He's not even being charged for it! All those laws that he's being charged with are exactly the same as if the gun ban wasn't there. This is absolutely stupid.Circuit Judge Donald Panarese set bail at $600,000 for Hammond, of the 7300 block of South Claremont Avenue. He faces a sentence of up to 30 years in prison if convicted of aggravated battery with a firearm, aggravated battery of a victim over age 60 and unlawful use of a weapon.
Also, there's a law to protect victims over age 60? Equal protection?! How is attacking a 59 year-old any better than attacking a 61 year-old?
