I’ll believe it when they go into East St. Louis and rip the guns out of the hands of all the gang-bangers.
They’re allowed, true, but it’s really stupid, and means that I won’t be taking any jobs in Illinois if I can help it.
an army of robocops couldn’t disarm south side chicago.. these libs are a bunch of loons.
Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Wisconsin and Iowa Governors would be well advised to send in their state police to seize the Illinois legislature and state house crowd and imprison them for an indefinate period. What Illinois is proposing to do is a clear and present danger to everyone in the surrounding states.
To my brothers and sisters in Illinois:
Leftist wingnuts just don’t or won’t accept the fact that the American citizen has a fundamental right to firearms.
They would be laughable if they were not so terribly dangerous in their intentions.
Time to move to Texas or any other decent midwest state that is solidly Conservative...
Hat tap rstark56! If someone knows about an Illinois ping list, let me know, please.
“Nationally the House will stop any of this crap from going through.”
Would you bet the lives of your children on that?
Has the house stopped anything at all from going through?
Is it possible that it is you who is the moron?
The house members lost their members this week and their butts are very sore, so they will not stand in the way.
I guess you don’t get it. They want law abiding folks to turn in their guns. The gangs would be their shock troops. Legalize all drugs thus converting the gangs to the new homeland security department.
I’d not be surprised if MN follows suit, or tries.
To them, these are laboratories of dhimmitude rather than
laboratories of democracy.
I hope the democrats in Illinois pass this bill into (unconstitutional) law.
Let’s light this candle...
Someday, maybe, you’ll find this statement of yours again and think “God what was I thinking?” and it was an off the cuff emotional response.
At least I hope so. Because I’d hate to think you clearly thought it through in light of all the caving the GOP does and then posted it.
That would be a level of stupid that most cannot fathom.
Disarm law abiding citizens of Illinois... And that somehow will make everyone safer?
Good job by the State Legislators helping to continue to convince out-of-staters to NOT move there. Not to visit. Not do set up shop there. To simply watch the socialist mayhem slowly work it’s way towards abject failure.
Heck, when I land at O’Hare for a layover... better believe I don’t stray far from the airport as it is.
Unbelievable how fast things look like to be racing to this point. People are getting pushed to the breaking point by Obama and the ruthlessly corrupt MSM.
I've just done that.
While they’re at it, they ought to ban drugs as well. That way, Illinois will be free of both guns and drugs. Oh wait, . . .
That is definitely the case.
Have any links to the fun stuff?
If this becomes law there should be economic consequences for every person and business that doesn’t proactively fight against this tyranny.
Sometimes these hysterical headlines upset the stressed out instead of inspiring constructive thought and actions.
People in IL, not known for mental acumen, will truly support this sweeping bill. They want to be “protected” by the government.
The bad guys just won in Illinois. No surprise, though, considering the trash that has come out of there!
How about moving to Colorado instead...??
You can’t even drive through there or fy over there with your guns. I recently went hunting in SD. We stopped for gas in my plane in IL. The line guy told us horror stories of TSA hanging at the airports during hunting season and inspecting airplanes stopping for fuel. If they found “bad” guns per IL. law it was hell for the hunters/pilots. We skipped IL. on the way home.
Moronsville at work! You could pass his bill and the thugs would still be killing each other. They, obviously, do not care about any gun law, let alone the statute book in general. There is no reason to live in Illinois, thanks to the Democrats.
That is a recipe for concentrating 2A proponents in more concentrated areas for easier disarming.
Instead, I think it better to resist everywhere possible, and reserve moving for other reasons. We need to deal with the disarming stupidity EVERYWHERE it raises its unconstitutional head.
Welcome to Texas. Got your CHL yet?
Ain't that the truth? I was last in Chicago in 2005, when I had to be there (estate settlement). Vowed to never come back to that state...and I haven't and never will.
This is a trial run at the state level for Feinstein’s bill or zero’s EO. Let’s see how they will go after the resistors. If enough resist, they can’t SWAT team everybody??? Gun owners might also consider buying some warehouse space in WI. If gun owners dare to go down, they might want to make a stand with all their weapons and friends at one location and ambush the SOBs.
Second and fourth amendment are up in smoke in ILL.
How about moving to Colorado instead...??
They are planning to ban guns here too...
Why? Why hasn’t the 2nd amendment been “incorporated” along with other sections of the Bill of Rights judges arbitrarily prefer?
It’s all political. The leftists don’t want people they disagree with to own guns.
The citizens of Illinois can always refuse to cooperate. Their defense is the Second Amendment.
I knew they would try something.
Odds are, it’ll probably pass.
I have thought the exact same thing recently. I have looked into it, and they are very nice weapons, and moderately priced (~$200, plus $60 per additional cylinder). And a .44 caliber bullet is quite formidable, whether propelled by black powder or modern propellents. Worked for a lot of guys in the West back in the day... And you don't get on anyone's list, since these are not considered worthy of background checks, etc. Quite a perk in my book...
HaHA! When is turn in your drugs day!
Funny thing The rest of the modern world will move forward and Chicago will be killing people with Knives, Swords, Poison, Baseball bats, Cars, Plastic bags, Tire Irons, and any other blunt force item of questionable nature, and rocks! Hell we’ll just continue to shoot em!
Sorry for the new post but Question!
Wasn’t the first 45 cal ACP pistol minted in 1909?
If the IL RATs are dumb enough to pass this bill, its enforcement will be enjoined immediately by a federal judge (or by the 5th Circuit), which would be the third time in three years that IL is b1tch-slapped for its gun-grabbing by the federal judiciary.
If you ban every semi-auto with no grandfathering, why would anyone need a 10 round magazine?
I don’t think this or anything close to it will pass or survive longer than 2 minutes without a successful court challenge, but...
Mr. Cullerton, there are at least 1.4 million legal gun owners in Illinois. There are about 3,600 employees (note, that’s employees, not patrol officers) of the Illinois State Police. How do you plan on collecting the firearms from those 1.4 million people? Do you really expect the State’s Attorneys of Illinois to spend the time and money to prosecute them all if they refuse to become defenseless?
