Knowing What to Ban has Never Been a Requirement for Gun-Grabbers

U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “It is clear that we must crack down on deadly, military-style assault rifles, which is why I voted to pass Senate Bill 1657, which holds gun dealers accountable by ensuring dangerous criminals and those with a history of mental illness or domestic violence cannot get their hands on a weapon,” Illinois State Representative Fred Crespo claimed in a letter to constituents. “I also support House Bill 1469, which would prohibit the sale and possession of high capacity magazines which turn regular firearms into fully automatic weapons”.

    Gov Rauner (RINO-scum) issued a veto for SB 1657. The IL senate turned around and created a new bill, somewhat watered down, but a new bill none the less, amendment 3 (I think) of SB 334. Both the IL house & IL senate have passed the new bill.
    The IL Gun Dealer Licensing Act will do NOTHING to curtail violence. It will drive the majority of IL FFLs out of biz. My local FFL, who works from his home (legal here in IL) has told me he’ll be driven out of business by this bill because of its compliance costs. But that’s not the most insidious part.
    The record keeping portion of the bill puts no limits on how long FFLs in IL must retain transfer records. In other words, the records might have to be kept in perpetuity !!! Back-door gun registration.
    The pol-FUCKS in IL can suck it.

    All the blah blah blah legislation does absolutely no good unless the people who CHOOSE TO MISUSE any firearm are taken from the streets. To me, an automatic NO PLEA BARGAINING sentence of 20 years minimum would do far more to curb crime. Prison overcrowding occurs – death row prisoners receive their just due, with the convicts with more heinous crimes brought to the head of the line.

      The problem for us is it really not about safety, it is about the end game. Remove the means of resistance and the statists will have a free hand to do as they please. It is about control, control of us.

        The problem for them is that they’ve been showing us the kind of shit they’re willing to pull on an armed populace. It only takes about three extra brain cells beyond the usual progtard ration of one or two to extrapolate to what they’d be doing to a disarmed populace.

          And yet here we sit complaining about it instead of doing what we need too so we can counter it…

        Exactly right the thing is man the right just can’t get it through their heads that we are at war and if we don’t start fighting effectively then we will be crushed…

      It works here in the formerly-great state of Florida. 10-20-Life, first time use a gun in a felony – auto 10 years, second time – auto 20 years, third time – auto life.

      Problem is the fucking state attorneys dropping charges and taking plea bargains because a plea agreement on a misdemeanor is just the same as a court case with life, and takes a whole lot less work.

      Mandatory laws only work if the Prosecutors can’t circumvent them. Cops can load them up with everything under the sun to ensure the criminal is behind bars until the heat death of the universe, and good charges that will stick, but if the prosecutor rolls over like a dead possum, well, ain’t nuttin we can do about it.

      Especially considering the chief prosecutor or head state attorney in an area is an elected official, who is pandering to get elected by the same group he/she/it is supposed to be prosecuting.

    Criminals, ie: bad guys or evil people, will always find a way to get their hands on a weapon and/or, a firearm. I propose what could be at least one solution to the problem of guns “being in the wrong hands”. For example, “thugs”, street gangs, or just stupid people who have no business having a firearm in their hands, there should be an IQ test given to every person who tries to purchase a firearm. If you can’t pass a simple IQ test, which would of course have an established “numeric” value attached, then you don’t qualify for a firearm. That would at the very least prohibit stupid people from obtaining a firearm. Who wants to bet that most if not all the shootings you hear about in Chicago for example, are committed by those with an IQ of less than 80? But there again, those in Chicago are by and large the criminal element that wouldn’t get a gun legally in the first place.

      You have fallen into the same trap so many others have and that is giving away control to an entity who does not have your best interest at heart and will at some point in time be used against you…Time to wake up and think outside the box the gov. controls…

    Strangely enough, Rep. Crespo’s district is in Cook County. Who would have figured?

    “high capacity magazines which turn regular firearms into fully automatic weapons”

    That’s an interesting trick…where can I get one of these magical magazines? :)
