    The Chicago Democrat used his amendatory veto power to gut a bill related to ammunition sales and add language prohibiting the manufacture, delivery, sale and possession of semi-automatic assault weapons and attachments. Illinois lawmakers could accept or override the changes, or not call a vote at all.

    Springfield Armory, Inc. is one.

    Illinois government could care less about jobs. Just give everybody food stamps and welfare.

    Typical liberal response to the problem. Never really tackle the real issues at hand. Always strip the honest citizens of their rights and create more kill zones. Then they scream they need more money for more police. Liberals are so flippin stupid its pathetic. I hope criminals hit his house.

    The liberal lawmakers that make these stupid moves have nothing to worry about from criminals, Dan - they ALL have very well armed men guarding them and their families.
    Being unarmed victims of crime is the job of us little people, not our benevolent leaders.

    Gun restrictions in Illinois have proved to be a major success, clearly evidenced by the 38% murder rate increase in Chicago:

    28 and a wakeup. Me and mine are outta this state forever. Somebody dies, somebody gets married, we'll send flowers - but I will never set foot in Illinois again.

    A couple have already moved. I suspect this will make the rest follow ! But, WTH, what's the loss of skilled jobs and tax revenues when PCism stands to the fore ? (Bureaucrats always think their jobs are invulnerable ) ! >MW

    The Chicago thugs (politicians) have a long and proud history of ignoring or violating the Constitution. They have ignored their Constitutionally mandated responsibility to fund their share of the teachers retirement pension fund for so long they are billions of dollars in arrears. The interest alone on the money they have to borrow to pay their retirement obligations amounts to 35% of their annual budget, and all they can come up with for a fix is hand-wringing, finger pointing, tax increases and threats of cutting Constitutionally guaranteed pension benefits, insurance and cost of living adjustments for teachers who, in good faith, paid their share for, in most cases, 38 years of service, longer than any other civil service occupation.
    Their attitude is to make the cuts and let the teachers file law suits letting the courts decide on the Constitutionality of the move. Meanwhile, the money they will save by not contributing their share will line their pockets. The Federal Government needs to step in and make them follow the Constitution, but I forget, Obozo learned all his tricks from the Chicago Democratic Machine.

    Come over the line here in Missouri, we'd love to have ya here. We're shall issue on CCW, a lot of the cities are starting to have bowhunting inside city limits on deer, and we can hunt deer with a rifle that has a max of a ten round mag. Them dang vehicle inspections are a small price to pay IMHO!
