Although the bill wasn't much, the governor couldn't sign it, saying in some articles I read that he was afraid that it would encourage people to buy and hide handguns in communities that currently prohibit their possession and lead us down the path to CCW legislation.www.suntimes.com/output/news/cst-nws-guns21.html

"But backers of the proposal said they have the votes to
override the governor's veto this fall and accused
Blagojevich of declaring war on law-abiding gun owners
throughout the state."

Let's hope they carry thru with the veto override.

Right. Why don't they cut the crap and clamp down on the minorities in Chicago? Anyone else in Illinois see anyone BUT Blacks and Hispanics causing problems? I'm sure I will get my weenie slapped by the moderators for saying that but I could give a shit. The problem is now, and has always been Blacks and Hispanics in Illinois. Cut the crap.

Hey guys, I used to live in IL. Sorry the guv is an anti. I hope they can override his veto, but I doubt it.

Baloneybitch is doing to us exactly what the Dems and antis want to do to the rest of the US. What else should we expect from a Lord Daley buttboy? I am going to go the the local cemetary this year and make damn sure that no dead Democrats vote in the presidential electon. If this shit gets any worse, I'm moving.

No wonder the state is in such sad shape... It's not the state, it's not the people, it's the nitwits running things!! Oh well this we be a test to see if the veto can be overturned.

This guy can be described in one simple word from our native home Illinois itself. JAGOFF.
I already have the right to defend myself. I don't need some dirt worshipping hippy liberal Babyboomer to enact a law to allow me to defend myself. There are two ways in and out of this house for bad guys. Alive and dead.

The real test is gonna be if Petka has the balls to bring back the bill
during the fall veto session. This is politics after all, and the people who
voted for it when Winnetka and Mr. Demarr were big news might fade away
in the hopes of not losing their share of Budget Pork.

We need to stay on Petka and everyone who voted for the bill
and pressure them to bring it back and override Blago.

The Blagojevich administration justified the governor's veto, saying Senate Bill 2165 could pave the way for Illinoisans to carry concealed weapons and would water down local control

Funny how they see those two things as bad and I see them both as good.

Stupid Commies!

This is just like in star wars... with the disbandment of the Imperial Senate, an officer asks Governor Tarkin "How will we keep the local systems in line?" He replies "The local governors will use fear to maintain control... fear of this battlestation!"


A previous poster stated the major problem in Chicago is minorities. Now, he has a right to his opinion, and I may be forced to concur. However, I've been driving truck for 7 years, and am often in the most pleasant neighborhoods, plus I used to visit my cusin while he attended IIT often.

There are enough dirtballs to go around... not just blacks and hispanics. But, I must agree, it seems it's the blacks that are "looking for trouble" ie. coming up to my truck "Hey man, wanna buy..." "Hey man, any spare change?" or my favorite...

3 AM, Cicero Ave. at a stop light, "Hey man, what you haulin?" "Who, me sir? Oh, nothing but a bunch of big screen tv's and computers. Boy! This here is a beeg city y'all got!"

Huh... I don't think so!!!
