    The problem is not with Larry Sefferin or the Cook County board. They're doing what will get them votes so they can keep their jobs. It's the people who live in Cook County who don't support gun rights. Cook County didn't ban handguns in Chicago, Morton Grove, Niles, Skokie, Evanston, Glenview etc. - it was the local town, village, and city governments that did that.

    I was a member of the Morton Grove American Legion pistol team the day 25 years ago that Morton Grove banned the ownership of handguns. Other towns in northern Cook County followed suit. Banning handguns put gun stores out of business, because it's almost impossible to make a living only selling long guns. Cabela's is big enough, and with their mail order and internet business may be the exception. The other gun stores just went out of business. John's Trap Guns in Libertyville, Illinois has been hanging on, but they are only open by appointment.

    Apparently there aren't enough people in Cook County who want to keep their guns. Unless the Constitutionality of these bans is successfully challenged in the Supreme Court, the ISRA isn't going to have any more luck with this bill than they did with the 2006 assault rifle ban that passed and is the law today.
