    Illinois man left seriously injured after vicious bowling ball attack

    Police in Illinois are on the hunt for a suspect who was caught on video smashing another man's head with a bowling ball Wednesday night, an attack that briefly left the victim in a medically induced coma.

    Damante Williams, 28, was involved in a fight at Town Hall Bowl in Cicero when another man picked up a bowling ball and threw it at him, striking Williams in the head, according to CBS Chicago

    Investigators say the suspect fled the scene in a 2018 Range Rover with Wisconsin license plate AFS3400.

    The Demoncrats need to put forth legislation that all purchasers of bowling balls need to subject to a universal background checks. That a 30 day waiting period is put in place between the purchase and the delivery of bowling balls. No high capacity bowling balls. All purchasers need to have a BBOID card. Bowling Ball Owners Identification card. Lastly, no assault bowling balls and no bump stock bowling balls.

    Lastly, no one can openly carry a bowling ball accept in their home, their personal vehicle or at the bowling lanes.

    I suggest the introduction of legislation for a National Bowling Ball Act!

    Was it a black bowling ball? With tactical finger holes in it?

    What would happen if you put the same amount of trust in God that you do in the brakes on what your driving on the highways?

    Think about it.

    I'll start the GoFundMe account. Whether ANY of the funds raised ever reach the victims will be entirely up to me.

    All bowling alleys should also be closed. There are lots of people that go to them, and there are numerous bowling balls. Also, the bowling pins make excellent cubs and can be thrown easily. Bowing alleys are disasters awaiting to happen. If they re allowed to stay open anyone who want to bowl should have to undergo a background check. I am safe. I do not bowl.

    Most likely covered in Dave Chappelle's latest Netflix release, or not.
