Our spies tell us that Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez is the major roadblock preventing Illinois’ gun owners from legally practicing the “bear” part of the Second Amendment. The anti-gun politician’s scheduled a press conference for Tuesday, and you can bet Dido’s White Flag will be running in the back of her mind. No surprise there. To quote Ms. Alvarez from the video above (2:25) “I would favor a law that no one could ever buy a gun.” We strongly advise interested members of the public to contact Ms. Alvarez at statesattorney@cookcountyil.gov with their views on the subject.

  1. So there’s a for real Gun Grabber. I think people who have never been around guns, or, to be fair, have had only negative experiences with guns, have a sort of visceral, emotional reaction, perhaps akin to the reaction many conservative Christians might have to a gay porn movie. It just seems freaky and wrong!

    We’ll never reach this woman, bless her, but there are a lot of liberals (or whatever you want to call us) on the fence, or indifferent about the issue. That’s your target audience. Pun intended.

  2. Why should we be surprised, that state is full of commie loving morons. I bet our resident trolls will love this whacked out puppet master.

  3. It would have been nice to at least hear her try to explain why people shouldn’t own guns. All she said was one line about children. Forget the stats, forget John Lott.

    She reminds me of an old Seinfeld episode – “No guns for you!”

    NCG hit the nail on the head. She will never be reached, unless she has a “Damascus road” experience.

  4. Let the good people of Chicago and the rest of Illinois continue to be like lambs led to the slaughter. As that great philosopher Bill Parcells once said, “you are what you are.”

  5. The Mighty RF said “To quote Ms. Alvarez ” and also “contact Mr. Alvarez”. Apparently the Great and Powerful RF performed gender reassignment surgery while typing this post.

    • Maybe she goes both ways. Not that there’s anything wrong with it. I think it’s what the pollsters call “undecided.”

  6. Interesting explanation for why firearms aren’t needed to defend against murder – she stuttered and stammered and she said she “understands that”. Apparently murder is an acceptable cost of making us safer. WTF?

  7. How can one woman who is only the Cook County States attorney have the power to stop the whole state from Getting the people the Constitutional right to conceal and carry a weapon ? Once again its corrupt Chicago Politicions Mafia group Ruining this state and keep it behind the times. From Daley , Raum Dead Fish Emmanuel, Blago, That idiot Gov Quinn. Lisa Madigan. the list goes on and on. And they all are from the Chicago area. I am sick and tired of it.People need to wise up and vote the right people to governer. Look at the idiot Desicions they made for this state and they are going to make a descision on OUR right to CONCEAL and CARRY !! we have strength in numbers people !!

  8. Leave it to the progressives to Gerrymander the state. So that some 10% of the geographical territory determines for all. As for Anita…. she is a typical Chicago Communist. Those who call themselves Progressive, should know that the term Progressive is the 21st century relabeling and remarketing of the Communist tenants. But again go figure seeing hw she come from “Jim Jones” country… remember that communist who left Ci-Town to go to a more socialist city and state like San Fran CA. ? Oh crap even they were not communist enough I forgot he moved to Guana…. Until he finally decided to force everyone to “Drink the Koolaid” – They shouldn’t call Chi-Town, Obama Country. They should call it Commie Country. – Just saying. Leaving Winn County was the best move I ever made in my life!!!!!

  9. I sent this:

    Ms. Alvarez,
    In your opposition to the legalization of concealed carry in Illinois, I urge you to reconsider your position regarding the common-sense gun rights that the Supreme Court has ruled are possessed by every American. District of Columbia v. Heller is quite clear about this: “Putting all of these textual elements together, we find that they guarantee the individual right to possess and carry weapons in case of confrontation.” (p. 19)

    Even Justice Ginsburg has acknowledged the right to carry firearms in her dissent to Muscarello v. United States: “[s]urely a most familiar meaning is, as the Constitution’s Second Amendment . . . indicate[s]: ‘wear, bear, or carry . . . upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose . . . of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person.” (p. 143)

    And finally, Justice Stevens too understands this reality in his dissent to Heller: “Given the presumption that most citizens are law abiding, and the reality that the need to defend oneself may suddenly arise in a host of locations outside the home, I fear that the District’s policy choice may well be just the first of an unknown number of dominoes to be knocked off the table.” (p. 46-47)

    The right to carry firearms is a fundamental right in the United States of America, and Illinois is bound to respect that fact no matter how fervently some may disagree. Opposing a fundamental right is not a realistic option, no more than it was for those who wished for African-Americans to second-class citizens forever. Freedom of choice and action always win in the end, and I urge you to align yourself with the forces fighting for, rather than against that principle.

    Respectfully,
    [Me]

  10. How is it that someone who doesn’t believe in the rights of an individual to protect themselves , can become a States Attorney??? Cook county need to wake up and get someone who respects The Constitution Of The United States Of America.. Not just take an oath and then not follow what the oath says…This state need to wake up and get rid of politicians who don’t want to give the people of Illinois the right to defend themselves..Cook County States Attorney should never have been elected with her view on the rights of American citizens….. Shame on her , Let Illinois residents carry and protect themselves…

    • Par for the course for C(r)ook County.

      Cook County and Chicago are bastions of anti-2nd Amendment rights. Which part of the state demographic do you think got her, Lisa Madigan and Pat Quinn elected? Smart money would bet on Chicago, Cook County and the misguided residents of the collar counties around Chicago.

  11. Blago went down. Next up, his sister in law and father in law (the Madigan Mafia). This chick is now on the list. Let’s dig up dirt on her.
