    WOW!!! That's an empressive violation of the 2nd Ammendment. Perhaps the authors and contributors should be charged with violation of the 2nd Ammendment of the Constitution which should be a felony with life in prison. Michael and Jane

    If that passes, I hope people in Illinois have the balls to defy this tyranny if it passes, just like people did in Commiefornia by refusing to register their guns. It's estimated that there is 80% non-compliance there, leaving a huge number of guns out of reach of the government. Same as in Canada, where the non-compliance was so great the registration scheme failed, and even some rural police were refusing to enforce it.<br>
    <br>
    The line in the sand is being drawn. How many have the balls to step over it?

    It would be nice to get a little help from the NRA. I remember seeing them at Sparta, collecting money, so I think they know where the state of Illinois is at.

    I have had people sit at the local gun club with gun in hand and bad mouth the NRA and say they would never be a member. When I asked why it was because "the NRA pushes Republican candidates" I explained that the NRA grades the candidates and unfortunatly few Democrats make the grade. I was told that making a living comes first so they had to vote only for Democrats. When I asked then to elaborate on what the Democrats had done to help them make a living no one was able to come up with an answer. I also said that when I was a union worker all the literature that came from the union said to vote straight Democrat, but I still belonged even though I didn't vote for Democrats. Hard to argue with logic like that because they are not smart enough make an intelligent debate but sure heats up the old gun club.
    I contend that we all have the right to vote but many have no idea what they are voting for as they only vote for a party.

    In fact, there are over 22,000 gun laws on the books. They've run out of ideas, so it's logical that gun prohibition is next.

    I just got a "legislative alert" postcard from the NRA yesterday. I have been a voting member of the NRA for a while. I would still like to see a little more action from them here in Illinois. Thank you, Rodbuster.
