That man has abandoned the 2A totally - he should be thrown out for constitutional rape."Hoffman Estates jumped ship, and Daley won't stand for that. This is yet another example of Mayor Daley looking to extend his power and control beyond Chicago's city limits," Pearson said earlier this month.
Absolutely - the as ever not-so-hidden agenda. It is sickening.If the ban on retail gun sales becomes law, "it just wouldn't pay to stay in the retail firearms business -- and that's precisely the intent of this legislation," Pearson said.
My friends that still live there tell me that hardly a day goes by that Daley or one of his cronies (which includes Comrade Blago) isn't involved in a federal corruption investigation. With luck they both will end up in Club Fed. :twak:Captain Crunch said:I agree that this is deplorable. It's a grandstand play, pure & simple, by politicians pushing their own agendas on the people. We can voice our outrage over this, but the fact remains, nothing will change in Illinois until the voters throw Blag what's-his-name, Daley, and all the other anti-gun pols out of office.
Sorry, but I don't see this happening anytime soon. The Daley political machine's stranglehold on Chicago/Cook County is too strong, giving Daley far too much power in the city, as well as the rest of the state. So goes Chicago, so goes Illinois. Blagojevich is nothng more than Daley's lap dog.
We can sympathize with our gun owning brethren in Illinois, but let's face it, they are a voting minority, thus they are powerless to upset the apple cart. As long as Illinois remains a "blue" state, the situation can only change for the worse. Without change, the pols will eventually succeed in taking away the right to keep and bear arms in Illinois completely.
