Daley gun control plan has new twists [Barf Alert]
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 2/20/08 | FRAN SPIELMAN

Posted on 02/20/2008 8:26:17 AM PST by kiriath_jearim

Moved by the shooting deaths of five students at Northern Illinois University, Mayor Daley today unveiled his annual package of gun control legislation, even as a state senate sponsor acknowledged that none of the bills could have prevented the tragedy.

Once again, Daley wants to ban semiautomatic assault weapons and .50-caliber military-grade rifles, use the State Police to license gun dealers and limit handgun purchases to one a month per person.

I could have sworn the NIU perp used a shotgun.

Why does anyone who supports the 2A live in Chicago? (or even IL for that matter)

Isn’t his city already covered by all these laws? I know the gang bangers in Chicago respect him for his stance on gun control, his banning of firearms in the city has made them feel so much safer when they are out and about terrorizing the decent people who live there night after night.

Nothing like openly admitting that what is bad for individuals is good for Democrats. They are like vultures feeding off the dead.

That’s one of the few bad things about Chicago. It’s a great city otherwise.

And once Obama is in the White House with a fillibuster-proof senate the first time one of these mass shooting happens I would not be at all surprised if there is legislation passed and signed into law that bans all manner of weapons, mandates storage requirements, limits purchases, puts a national registration into effect, etc., etc. And the courts will sustain it because they will have been packed with activist, leftist judges.

And it would make me wait 2 months to get into Cowboy Action Shooting as you need 2 six-shooters!

It may be the OLNY ONE but it is enough that I would never live there.

Why would you submit to having your RIGHTS taken from you?

Chicago is a beautiful city, I'll give Daley some credit for that. But the local government is out of control as well as local taxes. I used to visit chi town regularly, but taxes, parking, and admission fees to the various venues and museums are now cost prohibitive.

Proof they are using the NIU shooting for political effect. Enemies foreign and domestic.

I thought all dealers were federally licensed. What is state licensing going to do?

But, because it was an AK-47, she didn’t have a chance. The weapon pierced brick walls and it shot up several homes on the block,” Reed said.

Sure it did.

Well...I recently bot a .38 Special Rossi

And I wouldn't have been subject to Daly's new rules.

Because I bot it off a LEO friend...no papers, no registration.

What's gonna stop the CROOK, MURDERER, RAPIST, ROBBER from doing the same?

NOTHING!!!

Remember that Barack Obama is a product of the Daley political machine. You know the saying about he acorn not falling far from the tree.

The last round of new restrictions was implemented by Cook County, so everybody living within a few dozen miles of Chicago was subject to the new ban. And Daley's latest proposals he is trying to get passed for the entire state of Illinois. He'd try to eliminate the CCW and ban handguns in Indiana too if he could, but even Blago's clout doesn't extend quite that far. Chicago is the fundamental reason Illinois not only doesn't have any provision for a carry permit, but it's actually a Felony for the serfs to be caught with a concealed weapon. Meanwhile, Aldermen can carry, and Daley has a whole squad of personal bodyguards.

That was the 90mm caliber A&BP* AK-47 sabot round, with a depleted uranium tip for those REALLY tough brick walls.

The 30 round clips are really, really heavy...

why do we “suffer fools” who wish to abolish the second amendmetn via regulation?

WE should not be the onese haveing to accomodate these fools gladly.

THEY have to come to the majority view of thise issue.

We majority need to brand these buffoons like daily as simply socialists and have their anti-second opinion discredit them from the public discussion.
