MoveOn.org: Keep Illinois Concealed Carry Free! Gun Control by Dan Zimmerman | Nov 20, 2012 | 58 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments Joe Grine says: November 20, 2012 at 16:07 They should change their name from the “Stop Concealed Carry Coalition” to the “Enable Criminals Coalition.” Reply Mr Pierogie says: November 20, 2012 at 19:45 lemme see… “We must take a stand against the violence that is terrifying neighborhoods across the country.” Who are the violent people in your neighborhood? Is it the law abiding citizens or perhaps criminals who don’t seem to care that murder, rape, robbery etc. are already illegal. If these criminals want to obtain guns illegally, guess what, they will. But by all means, keep the law abiding citizens unarmed and helpless. I mean, just look at all those other states where CCW is allowed…those licensed individuals are just killing people left and right for no reason at all, right? I guess there’s no cure for stupid. Reply Eastern Oregon Guy says: November 20, 2012 at 23:41 Your comment there is no cure for stupid pretty much explained the whole problem in one sentence ! Reply DavidT says: November 21, 2012 at 09:19 There really is a cure for stupid but we have, as a society, decided to protect people from their own stupidity. Stupid moves used to be at least painful, if not lethal. flyboy says: November 20, 2012 at 16:09 Maybe they should start by finding the source of the violence. Instead of blaming the tool, blame the person holding the tool! Wow, what a concept! They’ll never do it because that means that individuals would have to be responsible for their own actions. Libs don’t believe in personal responsibility…unless they’re blaming the conservatives. Reply usmc says: November 20, 2012 at 16:23 I agree with you up to your last sentance. Personal responsibility is on an individual basis, and the failure to be accountable transcends all political parties and philosophies. Regardless, moveon.org and the FCCC can FOAD. Reply Mark N. says: November 20, 2012 at 18:56 And you kind of have to recognize that not one of the perpetrators in the listed incidents was a concealed weapons licensee. Reply Brad says: November 21, 2012 at 07:54 Mark – that’s irrelavant to these monrons. The 15 y/o kid in FL that killed the 13 y/o girl was carrying concealed as far as they are concerned. http://www.wsvn.com/news/articles/local/21009116234489/boy-charged-in-fatal-shooting-on-florida-bus/ They don’t want concealed carry banned, they want guns banned. And this is just the first step to that end. Reply Scott D. says: November 20, 2012 at 16:10 It kind of defeats your own purpose when the last line mentions all of those “gun-free zones” where concealed carry MAY have made all of the difference in the world. Reply Totenglocke says: November 20, 2012 at 18:42 Not to mention not one of those people had a CCW permit…. Reply Nathan says: November 20, 2012 at 18:48 For the sake of accuracy, I will point out that the Sikh temple in Oak Creek was technically not a “gun-free zone” there are no restrictions on carrying weapons in religious facilities in Wisconsin nor was there any sign at the temple banning firearms. But in all other aspects, +1. Reply Sammy says: November 20, 2012 at 16:10 What do you expect from Soros? Reply Kevin Morency says: November 20, 2012 at 16:10 This is one of the main reasons why I am leaving Illinois. We cannot even protect ourselves. Reply Kaliope says: November 20, 2012 at 16:19 That’s funny, the places they listed were all gun-free zones… And mayhap they should look at the fact that blood certainly doesn’t run in the streets when you allow concealed carry. Too many people have a fascination with tasting their own rectums. Reply barnslayer says: November 20, 2012 at 16:21 Welcome to Illinois where we can guarantee only the criminals have guns. Feel safe yet? Reply DavidT says: November 21, 2012 at 09:23 Even if those criminals are elected to office. Reply Average_Casey says: November 20, 2012 at 16:42 Seriously, those people should rename themselves the Coalition for Tyranny. Reply John Boch says: November 20, 2012 at 16:44 Jesus H. Crikey. Reply ST says: November 20, 2012 at 16:51 The typical Illinois urbanite would not feel out of place living in Tehran Iran.As such a Chicago resident should be considered a citizen of a foreign nation not affiliated with the United States of America. Reply ExNuke says: November 21, 2012 at 13:44 There are no “Citizens” in Illinois there are only residents. “Citizens” have rights that the government is required by law to respect (even if the government routinely violates those rights). Mere residents are sometimes allowed minor privileges as long as they don’t irritate their rulers or their ruler’s private select militia. Reply Greg Camp says: November 20, 2012 at 17:16 Moveon.org admits the reality of America: “Illinois is the only state in the U.S. that still does not allow people to carry concealed weapons.” Uh huh. Notice how concealed carry hasn’t been a problem? Some people have an extraordinary talent for avoiding the real world. Reply Fyrewerx says: November 20, 2012 at 17:45 a) In none of the example locations cited were the weapons “concealed” b) In there slogan, “in action” should really be ONE word … “inaction” That certainly is not an example of democracy (unless it has become a synonym for dictatorship) Reply jake45 says: November 20, 2012 at 17:52 The 2 previous Illinois governors are both in prison. The current one is a panty waisted puppet. That is why I moved to Wisconsin. Scott Walker is a rock star! Moveon.org is one of Obama’s favorite leftie troublemaker causes. He came from Chicago, Illinois. Need I say more. Reply pat says: November 21, 2012 at 02:50 Lib(tard)s reap what they sow. Theories that work on paper only are foisted on society through the power of ‘Big Gov’ by the use of propaganda on feminine emotion…….to protect the children (us) from ourselves. Reply John Boch says: November 20, 2012 at 17:56 Imagine that… the advocates of diversity, equality and the working man advocating for racist, classist and sexist gun control. It’s kind of bizarre, is it not? Why is it leftists hate freedom so much? Reply Fyrewerx says: November 20, 2012 at 18:05 Too hard to control a truly free man. Reply Brad says: November 21, 2012 at 07:57 + infinity Reply JPD says: November 20, 2012 at 18:07 Fear Reply Don says: November 20, 2012 at 19:22 Maybe it’s just that the caricature of so-called leftists you’ve been trained to believe in isn’t nearly as universal as you’ve been made to believe and this petition is just one of thousands of user created petitions on signon created by an anecdotal example of that caricature? Reply Jamie in ND says: November 20, 2012 at 21:53 No, I’m 100% certain John Boch is spot on. But thanks for playing the propaganda game, Don. Reply Chris says: November 20, 2012 at 18:56 My understanding of MoveOn is that it allows members to send messages to other members using their email list. I’m not surprised that someone has used it to broadcast their irrational fears in Illinois, it happens frequently in my area. Reply Don says: November 20, 2012 at 19:10 If you want you can make a “pro concealed carry” petition on signon just like some nobody made this anti one… -D Reply Don says: November 20, 2012 at 19:27 http://www.signon.org/create_start.html?source=homepage Here you go. Make a pro concealed carry petiton for Illinois and get signatures. If MoveOn blocks you from doing so, then THAT’S a story. Maybe they will, maybe they won’t. Reply Ralph says: November 20, 2012 at 19:15 MoveOn is owned lock, stock and barrel by George Soros, so what did you expect? Reply You Spot Fashion is a registered Fashion Design Agency.

I would like to apprentice at the same time as you amend your site, how can i subscribe for a blog website? The account aided me a applicable deal. I were tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright transparent concept Reply John Boch says: November 20, 2012 at 19:59 Someone snuck through your spam filter. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: November 20, 2012 at 19:54 Poor ole Abe Lincoln must be doing back flips in his grave. His once great state has been taken over by a bunch of low life COMMIE scum. Reply Not Too Eloquent says: November 20, 2012 at 19:59 An actual woman reads this site? That’s a bigger story than us pro 2A men shooting fish in a barrel over a stupid petition. I’ll have to watch my behavior around here knowing an actual woman is around. Reply JSIII says: November 20, 2012 at 20:01 This is why all “progressives” and their orginizations are an enemy to gun rights and gun owners. One way or the other Illinois will be getting CC be it through legislation or litigation. Reply Jamie in ND says: November 20, 2012 at 22:01 Damn straight. Reply JOE MATAFOME says: November 20, 2012 at 20:06 “Thanks for contacting MoveOn.org. We welcome your comments and suggestions. We get a lot feedback, so please don’t count on a personal reply. But all mail is read and carefully considered. Sincerely, MoveOn.org Support” I just received this reply from the MoveOnCommies and I’m pretty sure they didn’t read what I had to say because I let them know how I really feel about their gun hating COMMIE wasteland. Reply Not Too Eloquent says: November 20, 2012 at 20:19 Joe: I agree with your sentiment, but you might as well try to stop the sun from rising tomorrow. Reply Greg in Allston says: November 20, 2012 at 20:08 Dear Lee Goodman, What a simple tool and fool you are. You are neither good, nor a man, in the classical sense of the terms, of course. What a truly and profoundly pathetic specimen you are. Sincerely, Greg in Allston Reply Not Too Eloquent says: November 20, 2012 at 20:21 Lee is probably making good bank off the gun grabbers and values greenbacks over 2A. Reply Greg in Allston says: November 20, 2012 at 20:46 No kidding. Some people have a price for their soul, rationality and morality notwithstanding. Reply Lance says: November 20, 2012 at 20:52 Joe said it. They want mass shooting to happen more. Reply Jamie in ND says: November 20, 2012 at 22:08 +1 Reply Aharon says: November 20, 2012 at 20:57 Jessica W., thanks for sending this to TTAG site and to Dan for posting it. I’m glad that you’ve seen through MoveOn’s ignorance and narrow-mindedness., and walked away from their organization. Reply Steve says: November 20, 2012 at 21:00 I will keep this simple: F—Soros F—Move On.org F—Stop Concealed Carry Coalition F—Violence Policy Center F—Cease Fire: A Comprehensive Strategy to Reduce Firearms Violence. F—ACORN or whatever they are called nowadays F—Mayors Against Illegal Guns Reply Eastern Oregon Guy says: November 20, 2012 at 23:45 Steve very simple and to the point. I agree 100% ! Reply ensitu says: November 20, 2012 at 21:09 Crypto-Commie-On.Org Reply Matt in FL says: November 20, 2012 at 22:10 Illinois is the only state in the U.S. that still does not allow people to carry concealed weapons. Well, that should make it really easy to compare your violent crime statistics against everyone else in the country, shouldn’t it? That way you can see how well citizen disarmament is working for you. Here’s a hint: It’s not. Reply Scott says: November 20, 2012 at 22:34 Like I commented in the feedback section when this was e-mailed to me: How’s that lack of concealed carry working out in the cesspool known as Chicago? I live in Central IL, won’t go near the place. Des Moines, Indy, St Louis, Louisville? No problem. I refuse to enter the People’s Republic of Cook County. Reply DerryM says: November 21, 2012 at 02:13 In reading the “petition” I was interested to note how many “fear-monger” buttons the writer managed to push in barely seven paragraphs. What’s truly disturbing/disgusting is to realize how many people out there in Illinois will nod their heads in agreement their chests tightening fearfully as they visualize the images he conjures, sign the “petition” and probably send a check to this jerk’s organization to fund more of his scare propaganda. It must be a bitter thing indeed to live in such abject fear and loathing of the vast majority of your fellow humans that you would accept all this guy’s crap as gospel truth. We all know there are evil scumbags out there that would kill another person for a few dollars or just out of spite, but they are far fewer than the greater majority of decent people. But, then, I own guns, so as per the progressive gun grabbers, I am a ravening mad dog Barbarian…so, what do I know? Reply Kelly in GA says: November 21, 2012 at 07:33 I wonder what people like Soros or Bloomberg would say if they, or maybe their daughter, had their lives saved from a knife wielding rapist by a CC guy (or gal). The irony would be painful. Reply chuck morris says: November 21, 2012 at 08:16 It doesn’t look like moveon.com has much support on this page. Reply TWINKIES for ALL says: November 21, 2012 at 15:39 HEY, Someone needs to infiltrate or join Move….( to get the mailing list) and see about maybe sending a message w/ link or directing those ( on the list) that might want to carry, where to sign a separate PRO CCW petition. I would think set up a separate petition for Move list to sign, then add it with a Petition for the masses to see and sign.
