    I wish the oppressed people of Illinois the best. How they put up with that, I'll never know.

    I really feel for the people of Il. Until they throw the bums out of office I can't see this happening anytime soon. Although you never know - even in WI after a Republican Governor & Legislature were voted in, some Dems voted for the Concealed Carry Law. That made us the 49th state to get concealed carry. We even got the Castle Doctrine. I never thought I'd live to see it.

    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    I sure do share your comment. We in Wisconsin had the same situation with past political parties in power. Change in leaders worked for Wisconsin could work for Illinois.

    My wife was born and raised in Springfield, IL, the REAL Capital, not Chi-Town.

    However the massively corrupt big ol' Chicago political machine is still running the show and unless very large numbers of Illinois voters across the state really do get out and vote some representatives in office that will challenge and overturn what Chicago thugs have put into place, then the answer is NO, the citizens of Illinois will be clamped down by them.

    Many residents outside of Chicago are gun enthusiasts and really want to see "hope and change" but it may take an armed revolution to oust the people who really run things from the town on Lake Michigan.

    If you search around, you will find a lot of horrid stories about the crime in Chicago. It's bad. Apparently, it's normal though - because for so many murders, it doesn't seem to get any nation-wide coverage. But if the same amount of murders in a day happen somewhere else, say ... Maine, it would certainly be national news. Why a government set up "for the people" would take self-defense weapons away is very beyond any logic. Why would I even want to drive through their crime-ridden city?

    I am really glad this attorney is taking a stand to this. It's admirable when people stand up for righteousness against all odds.

    Unfotunately. this is only one of the state attorneys. Unless the others follow him, citizens are still in legal jeopardy if they violate the laws he wants to ignore.

    Well, it's nice to be the very last to do something. It's a wonder every criminal in the Country has not moved to Illinois for a better work environment.

    I wish the lawyer in the post the best of luck, he's swimming upstream!
