    Pike County passes resolution opposing gun control

    PITTSFIELD, Ill. — The Pike County Board adopted a resolution Tuesday opposing any legislation that infringes on the right to keep and bear arms.

    "What we are trying to do here is protect rights we already have," board member Robert Kenady said.

    A standing-room-only crowd of mostly gun enthusiasts applauded several speakers and the 7-2 vote on the resolution, which will be forwarded to state legislators and all other counties in Illinois. Neighboring Brown County already has adopted a similar resolution.

    "We have to stand up," said board member Mark Mountain, who proposed the resolution. "We have to voice our opinion. As an individual, it doesn't mean much. As a county, it means more. As three or four counties, it means a lot."

    "You gentleman have just made history here," said Pike-Adams Sportsmen's Alliance President Richard Metcalf.

    Resolution supporters claim that pending state legislation would ban many common firearms used for hunting and threaten rights guaranteed under the Constitution, the enjoyment of safe forms of firearms recreation and its economic benefits to the county.

    "This is about freedom," Metcalf said. "This is not a political issue. I'm not here as a conservative, a liberal. You're not here as a Republican, a Democrat. We're here as Americans." ...

    This is a case of downstate counties trying to keep their rights under the Constitution, not Chicago politics. Stupid comments are plentiful enough from our politicians without us adding our own..

    I visit Pike County often. Relatives near Milton. Rumor has it that Pike County, IL has some of the biggest deer racks in the country. I have heard that hunters travel quite far for a chance at a trophy buck. That true? Nubs Wagner.
