i like the line that 119 assault weapons were recovered from criminals
OK were there 119 arrests? prosecutions ? WTF??

and even better the line "the seller had pretty good idea the gun was destined for use in crime"

they better get after the auto mfg. they have pretty good idea the auto will be used in a DUI
last i looked there were more drunk driveing deaths than guns

Prepare guys, we will be duking it out in Springfield this year no doubt about it.

Get ready indeed! I feel like Paul Revere,"The liberals are coming,the liberals are coming!" We all need to start making contacts at work, friends etc. If and when they try to push their views, we need to have thousands at the capital. The problem is not the guys on this site, it is our friends and neighbors that agree with us but won't help. Apathy is deadly!

"The tide is turning in America, and smart leaders are going to be fighting to make it harder for the bad guys to get guns," said Sarah Brady, Chair of the Brady Campaign united with the Million Mom March. "



Yeah, it is. AGAINST gun control.

Half truth from the Brady Bunch, as usual.

(Checks calendar) Almost time to give King Daley his annual downstate ass-kicking.

They gave him a little tv air time today to whine, and it looked like Cullerton was standing behind him...literally. These guys never learn, and always want to blame inanimate objects for crime, rather than poor parenting/supervision/upbringing.

The picture that I saw showed Cullerton in the background. The article in the today's SJ-R quoted a few of the lawmakers. The downstate Dems seem to be shying away from this antigun crap, like they usually do. It would appear that some of the Chicago area Repubs could cause problems. Dillard indicated that he would be in favor of banning "some" firearms, but only after careful consideration. I'm so glad that weasel doesn't represent me.

You can find the legislative info at www.ilga.gov/ as it's posted. This is a new webpage. You can search by bill number or keyword "firearms". Spend a minute to register and you can build your own bill list that is automatically updated. Each day you can cruise through and check all of the days happenings in a few minutes.

You can also build a query with the parameters that you set up. You can do this every once in a while to view anything that might slip through the cracks. I view all bill activity from a given time period. Sometimes that takes awhile.

To register, you have to give your e-mail address and dumby up a password. I don't worry that this is some type of way to track gunowners. I figure that's what my FOID, yellow forms, and hearing witness slips are for. We're already known, so let's be heard.

As this gears up, we'll get bill numbers. It'll be the same old bills that we've been seeing, just new numbers. Once these bills have been submitted, you can get free copies from the House and Senate Bill Rooms. Get some copies and drop them off at your gunclubs and shops.

I find that alot of guys at the club like to stand around and jabber about gun control. They talk all of the talk, the "cold dead hands" talk, "it'll never happen here". Then ask them which District they live in and who their Rep is. The same guy that was strutting for all to see a minute ago is now silent. Hand him a copy of the bill that has the exact wording of how he will have his guns taken away and how much prison time he might get. At this point, he might start to fidget abit. Now, it's a little more real for him. The next time you see him, he may know who his Rep is, maybe he even called him. Others will blow it off, and we'll have to carry their load as usual.

Let the games begin!

Hey GreenDragon, good to see you back. Did you break down & buy a new computer?

Pic I saw in the local paper had Daley in front of a Cobb? 50. cal rifle ( bolt action, single shot). He was quoted as saying that it was an example of a "50 caliber assault rifle". You guys got a whole bunch of wackadoos down there.

Well California banned .50 bolt guns, obviously we should be next. Once again, may I point out, who is on the never ending tyrade of Socialism and gun grabbing?

Daley?
Lockeyer?
Blago­?
Dillard?
John Kerry?


The Babyboomers.

Well, I called my State House and Senate reps, they heard about it and are a big NO for it. Both are republican and pro-gun. All we can do now is wait and watch. I intend to be at the hearing for the AWB bill when they schedule it. I am willing to carpool with anyone else who would be interested in going when the time comes. Oh, I live in Kane Co. Just north of the Fairgrounds.

Colt Shorty,

It's good to be back, hopefully for good this time. I wiped out the system the day that I saw you, and just got it running again a few days ago. It's the same computer. I hope it will hold up until summer. If you don't hear from me for a long time, you'll know what happened.

For the people that are wanting to attend the hearings, be prepared for the run around. They like to postpone hearings at the last minute, especially if they sense a large turnout is coming. A couple of times, the hearing was still on track as of 10:00 for a noon hearing. Then they postpone. Or, they may delay the hearing for 3 hrs. It's a real bitch for the guy that leaves at 8:00 to be there. Last year for the IL AWB, they had the hearing on time, but they didn't call the bill. That was good news for us.

I live close to the Capitol, so it's not a big deal for me to go, depending on work. For those of you that live 3 or 4 hrs away, it's a tough call.

Every morning, they have a daily calendar that they release for the days business. It's not 100%, nothing in that building is, but it is a good indicator of what's going to happen. I've never found the daily calendar on line, but I've also never really looked for it.

When the time comes, if any of you are coming to Spfld, let me know. I can give you a few pointers on where to park.

The ISRA seems to keep abreast with events pretty well. Keep tabs with them. Does Friz still post their updates?

YES!

Does Daley even listen to what he is saying!!!

Today the big news was the double homicide at the Allure Night Club. Somebody pulled out a hand gun during an arguement at the club and started shooting...wounding several people and killing 2.

Daley was on the radio saying that .."this is the exact reason we need gun control...we cannot have people randomly shooting like this...we are going to send some very strong ideas to the state legislature."

What stonger legililation can you have than a total ban??? The laws in Chicago pretty much ban all handguns??? Did their ban stop this shooting???

When will they realize that criminals are criminals becuase they have no regard for the law???

This is like getting an "A" on a test in school, and getting a slap in the face because another kid in the class got an "F".

Well that's the good old Daley. What do you expect from him? He always says that when someone gets shot. Daley is a moron.

Daley is more arrogant than a moron. Refusing to admit his policies are not only wrong, but catastrophic failures. Only the most arrogant of men can never admit they are wrong.

We'll have to ban knives too.
