    November 28, 2012 (SPRINGFIELD, Ill.) -- A proposed assault-weapons ban that Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn announced in August with great fanfare has fizzled without discussion in the Senate.

    The Senate voted 49-4 Wednesday to override Quinn's amendatory veto that rewrote legislation to prohibit the sale or possession of semi-automatic rifles, high-capacity magazines and .50-caliber guns.

    My Comments: Oops... I guess even Progressive Liberals are still somewhat 'moderately... (Play on words)' interested in what all political faction, right or left, think about 'gun laws'. We are a 2A society, tough, in Ill, apparently a little more now then when a certain sitting President was there in the Ill Senate and voted Anti-gun... you decide...

    The original bill was to allow ammunition buyers to mail order ammunition from in state vendors. Governor Jello added the ban language in his veto. The original bill now goes to the house where it needs a 3/5 vote. That is, if the speaker lets it come up. Remember that all of the power in the state of Illinois lies in the hands of Mike Madigan, the house speaker. They don't call it Madiganstan for nothing. My money is on it not passing or even being voted on.
    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.

    From what I've heard Quinn is an absolute moron.
