Illinois State Senator: Maybe It’s Best to Just Grab All the ‘Assault Weapons’ After All

Courtesy senatorjuliemorrison.com

Illinois state Senator Julie Morrison is the sponsor of Senate Bill 107. The bill would ban most semi-automatic firearm and accessory sales. Current owners of the banned guns would be required to pay a fee and register their so-called assault weapons. The fee would be $25 per firearm and failure to register them would be a felony.

In a recent town hall meeting with Morrison, Mike Weisman, vice president of the Illinois State Rifle Association was in the audience. When Weisman asked Morrison why paying a “fine” to register a firearm is necessary, she allowed as how maybe it would just be simpler if the state just grabs all of the scary guns her bill would outlaw.

Constituent: You have a SB107 to take away my semi-automatic firearms.

State Senator Julie Morrison: To clarify, I’m not taking your gun away from you. You just can’t buy any new ones.

Constituent: You want me to turn it over to the state police.

Sen. Morrison: You can’t buy new ones.

Constituent: Unless I give you a fine. Unless I pay a fine for each firearm and register them, then I get to keep them. So, if I get to keep it, if I pay a fine and register it, how dangerous is it in the first place? Why do you need to pay it at all?

Sen. Morrison: Well, you’ve just maybe changed my mind. Maybe we won’t have a fine at all. Maybe we’ll just be a confiscation and we won’t have to worry about you paying the fine.

        It’s hardly the first time liberals have blatantly said that confiscation is the end game. Here was Dianne Feinstein said when the assault rifle ban was passed in’94. ~ CBS’s 60 Minutes, Feinstein said, “If I could’ve gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them — Mr. and Mrs. America turn ’em all in — I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.” So we all knew back then that Feinstein’s and the Communist Left’s ultimate goal

Get them in your corner. Enlist them. Speak to them, approach them with your grievances, convince them of the folly of unconstitutional laws. Sound too idealistic? Maybe…maybe not. Think about it.

However, as the centuries rolled by and European royalty evolved into pansies, their kings stayed behind in the safety of their castles/forts and ruled by military diktat instead of example.

      Not a single one of our Dear Leaders here in CA (Sacramento) would ever be part of the actual enforcement of gun laws they foist upon us. They pass their laws, high five each other for a job well done, and retire to their fundraising parties as they require others to endure the life-endangering step of enforcement.

  20. Paternalism is action that limits a person’s or group’s liberty or autonomy and is intended to promote their own good. Paternalism can also imply that the behavior is against or regardless of the will of a person, or also that the behavior expresses an attitude of superiority.

  21. THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LIBERTARIANISM
    Paternalism
    Paternalism refers to the practice of interfering with a person’s freedom and personal autonomy for his or her own good. The term evokes the idea of a family led by a benevolent father who looks after his wife and children, even if that should involve sometimes defying their desires and forcing them to do what he knows will best secure their welfare. Although individuals may treat one another paternalistically, such as a doctor who lies to a patient about a life-threatening illness to save her from grief, the term is typically applied to government legislation aimed at forcing people to make certain choices for their own good. Laws against drug use, mandating the use of seat belts, and the prohibition against voluntary euthanasia are generally intended to keep individuals from harming themselves, whether they like it or not. The view that such laws are legitimate is called legal paternalism or narrow paternalism to distinguish it from broad paternalism, which includes the private application of paternalistic coercion.

  22. THE ENCYCLOPEDIA OF LIBERTARIANISM
    Paternalism

    Legal or narrow paternalism comes in a number of varieties; soft paternalism is often distinguished from what has been called hard paternalism. The hard paternalist supports laws that prohibit or mandate that individuals make certain choices. The soft paternalist leaves open some space for choice, but deploys coercion more subtly, manipulating behavior through propaganda, by encouraging and discouraging choices through subsidies and taxes, and by throwing up impediments to voluntary action, such as the requirement to acquire a license or undergo a waiting period before undertaking a certain activity.

    I wonder if State Senator Morrison has considered that there might be just a “little” resistance and non-compliance should she get her bill enacted, or attempt confiscation? And I also wonder how many of Illinois’ sheriffs and other LEOs would enforce her new wonder law.

    Which brings up my belief that most members of legislative assemblies (up to and including the U.S. Congress) keep deluging us with proposed and enacted laws simply to justify their own existence, as they are professional politicians, one and all. I think Texas, in which the state legislature meets every two years, has the right idea. I’d also support limiting the emoluments of any legislators to allowances for travel, lodging and food, and that’s it. Otherwise, go out and get a real job and quit pestering citizens with all your brilliant ideas. The citizens are quite capable of handling their own public affairs and don’t need nanny’s in various levels of government telling them what to do. Also, people don’t obey the law because it’s the law, but because it makes sense. When legislatures pass laws that are in practise unenforceable or useless, they won’t obey them, and they disrespect the legislature for passing them. Remember the 55 mph speed limit that Congress enacted years ago, and pressured states to enact by threatening to cut off transportation money? How well did that work? ‘Nuff said.

      Every one of these bills in the Illinois legislature exempts police and retired police. Mike Weisman from ISRA, the NRA state affiliate, will never mention that, because ISRA, like NRA, is full of traitors that sell out their members to the police unions. The first time I ever laid eyes on Mike Weisman almost twenty years ago, ISRA executive director-for-life Richard Pearson introduced him to the room as their new photographer. Pearson also stated that Weisman “had experience infiltrating radical groups on campus.”

      If you attend the Gun Rights Policy Conference sponsored by Alan Gottlieb and SAF, you will see Weisman glued at the hip with Valinda & Mike Rowe. He appears to be their handler, and the de facto intelligence chief/eyes and ears for Richard Pearson. Weisman’s function is to attend every single possible political event/town hall meeting in northern Illinois to see if NRA & ISRA rubes have woken up to the fact that NRA & ISRA are the traitors who placed Duty to Inform in state Rep. Brandon Phelps “NRA backed” concealed carry bill in 2011-2013. Weisman many times has professional grade tripod mounted video cameras recording meetings. He appears to be recording ISRA & NRA members and 2nd Amendment activists, not the opposition.

      Weisman never made a peep about Duty to Inform in Phelps’ concealed carry bill, because Richard Pearson and ISRA negotiated the DTI behind the backs of their membership. The Duty to Inform language was supplied by Phelps’ pet rat Donald Todd Vandermyde, without a doubt one of the lowest forms of scum to ever foul this planet.

      Vandermyde personally negotiated the DTI with the anti-gun IL Chiefs of Police, along with Valinda Rowe from (southern) Illinois Carry and John Boch. Vandermyde, Rowe, and Boch were all personally in the room with the IL Chiefs lobbyist and signed off on the Duty to Inform in 2010-2011. Weisman is part of the problem in Illinois. Like NRA, ISRA has been selling out to police unions for twenty years. The problem in Illinois is not politicians like Julie Morrison, it’s the rats and traitors in the “pro-gun” ranks.

    2. avatar User1 says:

      There shouldn’t be regulations on cars. I should be able to buy a cheap new foreign car, import it without penalty and drive it on roads I paid for. I shouldn’t be required to give it to the government for a serial number, pay a fine for using it, forced to pay a corporation to drive it on socialist roads and get a permission slip that is used to track/identify me.

      Your right to travel unmolested is being infringed upon. There is no resistance because the government was successful at indoctrinating people into thinking you don’t have a right to own property and to travel. Now you will need a Real ID or passport to get on a plane, you need to be facial scanned for international flights and you must be searched by government/TSA.

      Of course the government wants to extend such tyranny to gun ownership. It’s a natural progression in enslaving the people.

      They are making it difficult to even say that on the corporate internet. They want to extend hate and dangerous speech laws so they can stifle education.

    Excuse me, are you THREATENING me?! Because it sounds like you just threatened to steal my property…. And not break-into-my-house-while-I’m-at-work steal it, but point-guns-at-me-and-murder-me-if-I-don’t-comply steal it. That is what you’re proposing, isn’t it? Forcefully take property from people who have shown no hostile intent whatsoever, and murder by them if they resist. Take a good long look at yourself, Julie, because whatever your intentions, YOU are a violent sociopath (and to any cops in the room, so are you if you don’t arrest her right here right now). Anyway, I dare you to come knocking on my door with a confiscation order, because if you do, I guarantee that one of us is going to die.

    1. avatar User1 says:

      When people consider modern weaponry as sporting rifles or hunting rifles. When licenses are required to exercise human rights. When gun owners view their tools as toys. When Americans dare not even think of using firearms against the government. When people spend more time looking at gun than using guns.

      They don’t need to take all the guns. They just have to make all the gun owners docile and passive. What is a tool if the operator is unwilling or mentally unable to put it into service?

      There’s a philosophy that states: the weapon isn’t the thing in our hands, it’s the thing in our heads. A man is as dangerous as his mind allows him to be.

    1. avatar Dude says:

      Well that has happened in CA, but more over taxes and cost of living. Instead of changing, they accelerated in the same direction since there were less people there to oppose it. Of course there aren’t as many millionaires and billionaires in other states like in CA to pick up the slack.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        If one is warned of rocks in the path of their ship but fails to change course and instead merely accelerates on the original course they still hit the rocks do they not? Ultimately they are forced to deal with the problem of those rocks, one way or another. [Perhaps that’s not the best analogy since it’s possible to sink the ship and lose all hands but historically that doesn’t happen in politics.]

        California is headed for disaster and there are two possible outcomes of that course. Either as they near the rocks they decide the officers on the ship are incompetent and select new officers that change course, or they hit the rocks, decide that it didn’t work and then change things.

        The question isn’t the outcome IMHO. It’s how much pain has to be felt before the outcome occurs. Dumb kids might touch the hot stove more than once but eventually they’ll figure out not to keep touching it.

        People often say that the arc of history bends towards tyranny and dictatorship. That is entirely based on the myopic view of history that they’re taking. My analogy would be that they’re “day trading” rather than investing over the long term because over the longer course of history things bend towards getting better and more free and the interwebz have only accelerated that trend. That’s not to say that there are no failures or steps backwards. Surely the direction doesn’t always point towards more freedom but, like daily stock fluctuations, but the overall trend of the line does head in the preferred direction.

        The Dark Ages are a historical example of this. Five centuries of stagnation and even regression but, ultimately, things in 1800AD were a hell of a lot better than they were in 200BC and things now are better than they were in 1800. Clearly things would have been better if the trend continued without the losses the Dark Ages represent but that doesn’t change the fact that the Dark Ages were, ultimately, a temporary setback for humanity.

          I disagree that things are better today, that history tends to improvements. The truth is that history bends towards tyranny and dictators. Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, etc. It is only better in the USA, and the USA is losing the morality to keep things better. The truth is that a Republic can only stand when its citizens are moral. But the USA has rejected God, and in doing so, has lost the ability to think. “Professing to be wise, they became fools.” (Ro. 1:21). These globalists, like her, who think that dumping God and the constitution will usher in utopia are all fools. If they get any more power, all of the USA will feel the effects of their foolishness. It won’t be pretty. Mao killed 100 million of his own. Stalin killed perhaps 27 million of his own. Hitler, Pol Pot, and all of the other commie dictators killed millions of their own people. It is what foolishness does. And the people do not have a gun to stop it. The government first confiscated all of the guns to ensure that it could not be stopped.

    3. avatar User1 says:

      Just like how the North Korean dictator changed his mind… Venezuela is turning their banana boat around after witnessing many of their citizens running away to other countries.

      Even if you leave the state, the system is setup for the federal government to give them other states’ money and the Federal Reserve can print as much as they need (which is simply stealing from your pocket without you knowing via currency devaluation). You can run but you can’t hide.

      The only thing they fear is death. They control everything else.

      1. avatar strych9 says:

        I don’t see this as correct at all. Venezuela will, if it continues it’s current course, completely collapse and a new nation will emerge.

        It’s not a question of if things will get better, they almost certainly will. The question is how many people have to suffer and die before that happens.

        Were a state within the federal system to fail, such as Illinois or Cali which seem to be racing each other towards oblivion, yes, they’d likely get bailed out (assuming that’s legally possible which I tend to think it probably is) but while that sucks in many ways it’s also an opportunity because that bailout can and should come with strings attached (assuming the rest of us aren’t stupid).

        Those ponying up the bailout can set the standards under which the failed state gets bailed out. The rest of the nation gets to act like a bankruptcy judge and approve or disapprove their plans before they get out of Chapter 11. So, if this happens the states to which it happen cause a headache for the rest of us but ultimately they lose the control they currently have and (assuming the rest of us are remotely intelligent about this) cannot repeat what they’ve done since they lose the authority to do those things in exchange for the bailout. Economically they will have beat their swords to plowshares and then they will plow for us.

        1. avatar User1 says:

          The entire country can collapse but that won’t stop the politicians. They will continue to behave like they always have. They will not be personally affected unless attempts are made on their life. They will live fat and happy while the people starve in the streets and become constant victims of violence. This is how kingdoms existed for centuries. They only need to feed a few mouths that will follow their orders, as long as those people are happy they will enforce the law. For those enforcers all that matters is the money and privilege given to them by their masters.

          They [Democrats and Republicans] do not feel remorse as they plunge America into debt, a debt the people cannot pay. When this socialist country collapses the constitution is be burnt by the ignorant and angry. This is how communism rises.

          You can’t really vote with your dollar or feet anymore because they made sure that doesn’t have the effect it once had. Now they are moving to take the guns because that is the only power the people still have control of. Voting still matters but mostly locally, that is an uphill struggle because they control the socialist educational system and the corporate internet.

  41. avatar Vlad Tepes says:

    Looking at reality if you have a huge collection of military style weapons especially assault rifles it might be a good idea to dump them now and get something for them rather than wait for the ax to fall after the 2020 elections. The Republicans have so outraged the average citizens with their tax rape law and Trumps tariffs that are driving up prices that it just might result in the Dems taking over both houses of Congress and capturing the Presidency as well. If that happens look out the big confiscations will happen over night and if you have followed the history of the power mad Supreme Court and their sanctioning of most gun laws they will not do a damn thing to overturn any new gun ban laws. The Corrupt Supreme Court follows public opinion and which way the stench of political wind takes them which means every gun owner will take a huge financial hit and no, there is not a damn thing you can do about it if you want to go on living and breathing. Look how easy it was for the Aussies to melt down millions of guns and do it in record time. So you think the U.S. has too many guns to ban certain types. Guess again, it takes less than a few minutes to melt down tons of them and they will do it one category at a time as to not cause too much panic and outrage and gradually pit gun owners against themselves telling them “if you do not own this type of weapon do not support those who do”. Its divide and conquer and it works every time because the naked ape looks out for his own self-interests not the other guys.

    The smiling jack booted robotic storm troopers will soon be visiting your neighborhood with loud speakers giving you 5 minutes to throw your weapons out the window and onto the street as front end loaders and dump trucks stand by to load up and cart them away to the nearest smelter complete with news camera crews filming and crowds of people cheering. Those few fanatics that resist will be made an example of as helicopter gun ships burn down a persons house with the people in it and then Waco style gun down the screaming people on fire that come running out of the house. Remember too that the Waco people did not have a church that was BATF approved. The haunting specter of Janet Reno lives. History is not on your side.

    Time grows short and the end of an era is upon the condemned gun owners who will soon be only a dim historical memory written about in some old dusty book forgotten on a Library shelf in a dim and dark section of the Library and soon to be tagged in a dollar book sale. A young man of the future will stumble upon this ancient book at a yard sale and wonder how these strange people called gun owners could have been so barbaric as to want to own weapons. He will think “Thank God that now when people are born they have mind control chips embedded into their heads to suppress the ancient Neanderthal urges for greed, violence, aggression, and the lust for rape, pillage and conquest”.

    The current self-imploding of the NRA due to graft , blind greed, and corruption could not have come at a worse time in history for gun owners. The gun owners last chance of survival is being flushed down the drain as the NRA will soon become extinct leaving the gate to the medieval city wide open for the hordes of the gun grabbing army ready to rape, pillage and destroy all the guns they can find. Remember “Follow the Money” and there will be no NRA money to pay off the Republican Congressional Prostitutes who will then “go where the money is”. i.e. with Michael Bloomberg.

    Freedom is a fleeting thing. The Greeks once had it with true democracy while the Americans were only duped into thinking they ever had it and when the truth finally dawned on them it was to late to ever get it.

    Looking forward to the 2020 elections, I assure you your election will be in good hands, our Socialist hands and we will guarantee it and our ultimate victory my fellow comrades. For a Socialist tomorrow vote Bernie.

Not to mention such a bizarre scene would lead to enormous collateral damage. Now this entire discussion may seem silly, but I do think in the not too distant future, robotic military beings like terminators will be reality. Especially if they are self aware.

    SB 107 is also an attachments ban for all semi auto rifles. You just have to read the SB 107 and find the clause for this. But, SB 107 makes it a felony to own any attachment for a semi auto rifles. The other parts limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds for pistols and rifles. There are also other Senate Bills that would make parts and parts kits, and accessories felonies if you own them if these Senate Bills pass in Illinois.
    10 (2) A person who knowingly delivers, sells, purchases,
    11 or possesses or causes to be delivered, sold, purchased, or
    12 possessed in violation of this Section an assault weapon
    13 attachment commits a Class 4 felony for a first violation
    14 and a Class 3 felony for a second or subsequent violation.

      When will Republicans figure out it’s a bad idea to stop felons from owning guns once they finish their sentence?

      In the future there is going to be a lot of Republicans convicted of felonies. They won’t be able to vote nor exercise their right to own firearms.

      Republicans better plan ahead, they need to be proactive, that is if they are not complicit. Red flag laws show which ones are complicit. Whom do you think they are going to raid using those red flag laws?

    If you think about it, the left wing liberal socialistic DEMOCRAPS are just trying to gain total control of the people just like many other socialistic countries just look down south,, which is what will happen if we don’t watch out. To ‘Disarm’ the public is their aim which is a way to control the peoples. To hell with the bill of rights!! What second amendment??? If we don’t watch it , it’ll be gone if they have their way. Instead of fixing the problem, which is the CRIMINALS which do not obey the LAWS in the first place, you know that is why they are called criminals!! Oh by the way, who is going to protect the peoples, not the politicos, they are to busy gaining power and money to look out for us little people…

    This twit was overheard speaking with a colleague after the meeting stating, “After we confiscate “Assault weapons” we can go after “A-pepper weapons” next.

    By her showing her true colors, she actually polarized Illinois gun owners. She doesn’t just want to take black scary rifles but every gun in the State. That doesn’t sit very well with people in Illinois. The word is out and spreading like wildfire. I imagine that her boss Mike Madigan is not very happy with her, she let the cat out of the bag. She will need his approval to get her bill passed and his money to get re elected. She will likely get neither.

    Its the same with Kathleen Willis. She attached a bunch of trailer bills to a Senate bill that had already passed. Madigan put her into office giving her $600,000 to get elected. The problem is Madigan and Pritzker know what they can get away with when they sneak BS under the radar. When it becomes exposed then they have problems.
    The IL senate would not even bring Willis’s bill up for a vote, there are too many Dems that barely got elected. They do not want to be voted out of office.

    Fortunately for Illinois citizens these two stupid bitches spoke of their secret Nazi agenda. That doesn’t bode well for them. The fact that Pritzker got a whole bunch of taxes passed that will effect the average Illinois citizen and not the rich means he will be a one term Governor. He ran on the platform that the rich would be taxed but that got tabled so that the rich could move or get their money out of the state. That doesn’t sit well with Joe Average and in a week gas is going to shoot up 19 cents, effectively doubling. Come January 1st a bunch of other taxes go into effect that affect the poor and middle class. The Dems screwed the pooch, they over reached.

    If Madigan manages to live long enough, he will see the State of Illinois turn solid red. As it stands now more then 95% of the counties are red but Chicago is the third largest city in the nation and is solidly blue. Why do think that Chicagos mayor Lightfoot and Pritzker immediately were outraged about Trumps ICE agenda and basically said they wouldn’t comply with it? To garner the illegal alien vote. For those who don’t know illegals vote in Illinois even though they shouldn’t. Years ago it was the dead and now it’s illegal aliens voting in Illinois elections.

    J.B., Lightfoot and most of the Dems will need it come election time. Madigan will make sure Morrison and Willis don’t get any money for their re elections so all in all by them opening their mouths the effectively screwed themselves.
    Bye bye Kathleen. Bye bye Julie, you two exposed the TRUE agenda.

    Having read through page, there are a few worth while & intelligent comments but it seems it is necessary to educate the commentators-
    Soviet communism & socialism are not the same thing, in Soviet communism is gone now: we won.
    Socialism is not opposed to capitalism and the countries with current highest standard of living and the happiest people are all capitalist/socialist countries because they spend their taxes at home helping their citizens and this strengthens their societies.
    These are the kind of countries have mandatory armed services laws for all adults and, some even require households to own guns by law incase of a need to defend the country.
    This country has been moving strongly to the right for decades, there is only 1 political party at highest levels and it is the corporate party and, it is under that stewardship that we lost the highest highest standard of living in the world, millions of jobs, most of our manufacturing capicity……. while the populace has lost its wealth, seen it workload increased and, had their benefits whittled to nothing wages have been stagnant for 50 years but productivity & corporate profits are at all time highs.

    If you are still talking about the scary commies, the nursery state &, libtards you either a dinosaur or part of the problem-
    Mitch McConnell is not your friend, that man is the current star of the GOP and that has made his career robbing the people to give money to his corporate masters. The Clinton’s are his friend, think NAFTA & rolling back the Glass-Steagal act.
    Obama is his friend, sure was nice of him to not do anything when he had democratic supermajority in congress and he even let Mitch stuff his supreme Court nominee for 2 terms as president……. Divisive party politics keeps the people from uniting against the actual enemy.

    I am a progressive independent, a staunch supporter of the 2nd amendment and, a gun owner.
    I will be there to join you saying MOLON LABE and I don’t want to increase your taxes, I want to see the taxes collected spent helping Americans here in America rather than bombing other countries to make rich people richer.

    Not taking away our guns, just our ability to buy another one, that makes zero sense lady, and equates to the same thing, just over a longer period of time. But then, you know that. Let us forget about that for the moment. How about, “…shall not be infringed?” Whatever scheme you plan infringes that constitutionally recognized right. No way around it.

    Alcohol control didn’t work and neither will firearms prohibition.
    If she cared about the people, state and nation, she’d focus on getting the illegals out =of here.

    She ought to be forced to resign for violating the Oath of Office. When oh when can we expect ANY AG to start taking these Oaths seriously and deliver repercussions for those that violate them?
    IL is a shithole.

  67. avatar Lynn K Chitty says:

    Yes Illinois is a shithole and unless the demons (democrats in office) are excised it always will be. She can start by disarming gang members, wannabe gang members, crooks and the ISIS style training groups in Illinois and let me know how that works out for you and until then and only then have you earned the right to ask me for mine. When I graduated in 1969 you had 4 choices for a immediate career path, 1. Having parents with enough money to buy a college deferment. 2. Run to Canada, 3. Join the military. 4. Wait to be drafted (for a war that wasn’t a war) I chose #3. 1 Month later they taught me how to clean, assemble, maintain and shoot a M1 Garand (automatic rifle) a Colt 1911 (45. automatic Pistol) followed 3 weeks later by a Browning automatic rifle and the “fun”dementals of caring for and firing a 50 cal machine gun. So now tell me just how qualified are you to tell me how to live and to protect myself. Keep in mind that the second Amendment was meant to protect us from assholes like you in government.

  71. avatar Michael says:

    Time to start a petition to remove Illinois state Senator Julie Morrison from office. Its time to say enough of the BS from the Democrats. Vote a Straight Republican ballot and lets get rid of these isiots from the left..

  72. avatar A thinker says:

    By her own way of thinking and using her own logic (or lack thereof) then anyone who is afraid of what she MAY do should just shoot her. Now I don’t advocate it at all, but I’m just saying that if you use her own line of reasoning, that if we can’t get her to listen to reason. Can’t effectively vote her from office or bunt her ability to propose bills, then violently removing her would be ok. See this is the warped logic that people who are afraid of their own shadow uses. Instead of addressing the root causes they latch onto totally unrelated issues that are scary looking and say that is the problem. Why won’t they address the actual issues? Easy. If they address the actual issue then that means they have to admit that everything they believe and everything they advocate is actually the cause of the problems. God forbid if they have to do an honest assessment of the effect of their policies. It is unfortunate that the left for the most part, only believe that the only way that things can get better is if they deny the rights of a certain group within our country. They fail to realize that if they take away the rights of one group because they believe it is expedient, then they can have their rights curtailed and taken away by some other person if it seems expedient for their purposes. It is an extremely slippery slope that she treads. They never believe that what they do can never be done to them because they tend to believe that they are ordained by God to do what they are doing. So they don’t think they will ever either be held accountable nor will they think that they’ll also come under the same situation.

    Well senator, why don’t “We The People” just declare it open season on your personal property as well, you can have my assault weapon and I’ll take your car, your house and anything else you have bought that I happen to take a liking to, or is grand larceny to be a reserved right only politicians are allowed to commit?

    1. avatar Dennis says:

      Don’t know if it’s still the sting of being denied the White House or just a mental aberration, but we seem to have an overwhelming number of “elected” officials who have God complexes. We need to relieve them of all their stress in November!

  75. avatar Shawn W Gehling says:

    Assault rifle, military firearm that is chambered for ammunition of a reduced size or propellant charge (rifle caliber) and that has the capacity to switch between semiautomatic and fully automatic fire. This removes all of the weapons that they are calling an assault rifle. (Just because you think a weapon looks scary, or looks similar to a military style weapon. DOES NOT MAKE IT AN ASSAULT RIFLE). If we make that assumption about weapons, does that apply to everything else in life? Most of the weapons on their ban list are pistol caliber or shotguns. neither of which fit the category… Unless you want to just make shit up and then well we can make everything that is scary to someone illegal. You might want to go back and read the Constitution. They wrote it so this wouldn’t happen. So which amendment is next, 1st, 3rd, 4th?

  76. avatar Danny says:

    This is northern Illinois. The real people living in southern Illinois are sick of those liberal idiots trying to dictate the whole state. If the stupid gay, liberal, victim mentality people of northern Illinois would stop voting for dictators this shit would stop. People are getting tired of this shit. The whole country is on the edge of a major revolt.
