Justice Michael Burke leads a good discussion of the balancing considerations that are the foundation of much of the constitutional doctrine regarding the 2nd Amendment. 

Burke (R-Elmhurst), the sitting 2nd District IL S Ct Justice, is running for election in the Fall in the 3rd District, due to the Dems’ redistricting of the IL Supreme Court’s five districts. He discusses with show host Berkowitz the basic laws and mental health issues that relate to any meaningful discussion of the July 4th Highland Park, IL tragedy and what might be done to make similar tragedies much less likely in the future in IL and across the country.

In “Breaking news,” Burke gives a detailed and thoughtful exposition of the elaborate and complex undertaking of the Illinois Supreme Court, seemingly to try to “bail out” IL’s legislature by addressing some, but not all, of the problems created by the so-called “Safe-T” Act. Two such problems apparently not able to be addressed by the Supreme Court, at least so far, are that the Act eliminates all cash bail and bars any detention for a number of violent crimes.

We would bet the ranch that even those generally informed about important public policy issues have heard little, if anything, about the IL S CT procedures and guides, in the making, for lower court judges and others that are discussed in this week’s show.

Burke’s closing comments regarding what the IL Supreme Court can and cannot appropriately do to deal with public policy issues should be quite helpful for voters in the 3rd District and the public at large to learn about and reflect upon prior to the November election.

Finally, this fall’s two IL Supreme Court races, as noted in Burke, Part 1, are of tremendous importance: If the GOP wins both the 2nd District Curran-Rochford race and the 3rd District Burke-O’Brien race, the Republicans will have the majority (4-3) in the Il Supreme Court for the first time in 58 years.  

This pair of two IL Supreme Court fall races has been assessed as among the Top Four items on this November’s ballot in IL. 

Burke, Part 3, focusing on pensions, will be posted by Friday of this week and will start airing on Cable in Chicago next Monday night in our regular CAN TV slots- Ch 21, 8:30 pm and midnight.
