    Cook County IL Bans More Firearms

    Just thought I'd post this in case anyone didn't already find out. Here's the article. DEADLY WEAPONS DEALER CONTROL ORDINANCE

    Luckily(?), I never got around to buying any of the banned firearms, so I don't have to get them out of the county in 90 days. They just sort of passed it with no publicity, no notice to anyone - typical. Another indication of stupidity from the Daley/Blagojavich machine.

    Still trying to get out of here and into Arizona!

    Angry Nothing Grandfathered In

    I guess they avoid the Theft Of Private Property By Omnipotent Idiots In Local Government charges by allowing "American Citizens" (in the land of the free and the home of the brave) a certain amount of time to get those "prohibited" firearms out of Cook County (the land of the willingly oppressed and the home of the beaten and whipped)

    I would have be looking at Cook County for the last time in my rear view mirror.

    That's totally pathetic.

    Unbelievable!

    Some of the provisions included in that ultra long list are amazing - almost a total ''catch-all''. I can just imagine the expressions of evil pleasure as the committee drew up that list!

    So - what is Cook County's address then now? Cook County, N America? Cos it sure can't be U.S. of A. Or change name to ''Constitution Dead County'' - a term applicable to some other places we know too.

    Thumbs down

    Boy, that'll keep the criminal element unarmed for the future! Yaaay, a win for the good guys! Not.

    Any rifle that has the ability to accept magazines of greater capacity than 10rds is classified as an "assault" rifle? As if the crime of murder/robbery/assault isn't enough, the inanimate object itself makes you the criminal. Smart people, those folks!

    Illinoise: legal teeth clamping onto the good guys, helping to create a free-fire zone for the bad guys. What a country.

    Elwood had it right (paraphrased): "We're 106 miles from Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and getting darker all the time (back in Chicago)."

    Whats next? Don't make a fist, no slapping? Have they not noticed criminals don't obey the law by definition?

    I apologize to those who live in Illinois, but this is just another reason for those who don't to avoid going there (which is a personal shame, since my mother was born there)....
