Illinois guvernör skjuter förbud mot "Assault vapen,""Hög kapacitet"Ammo tidskrifter

As Democratic lawmakers can’t figure out why shootings and murders have erupted with renewed vigor in Chicago this summer (hints: bare-bones Chicago Police Department, gun-related laws already on the books but not enforced, and shooters not going to jail or for too short a stint), they’ve resorted to pushing more gun “control” laws on law-abiding constituents who have had nothing to do with the outbreak in violence. From a press release on the Illinois Government News Network website Sunday:

Governor Quinn Fights for Stronger Gun Laws Across Illinois
Congresswoman Kelly Joins Governor to Urge General Assembly to Pass Illinois Public Safety Act and Take a Stand Against the Violence

CHICAGO- Governor Pat Quinn, joined by Congresswoman Robin Kelly, today visited the site a recent fatal shooting in Chicago’s Morgan Park neighborhood to urge legislators to stand with families and communities and take action against gun violence. The Governor pushed passage of the Illinois Public Safety Act, legislation that would ban the sale or delivery of assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines in Illinois and require background checks for the transfer of guns. Today’s action is part of Governor Quinn’s agenda to make Illinois neighborhoods safer.

“The recent epidemic of violence in Chicago is unacceptable and we must join together to fight back,"Guvernör Quinn sa. “Public safety is government’s foremost mission and Illinois should not wait any longer to act. There are too many victims of a war being waged on our streets, a war fueled in part by the availability of deadly, military-style assault weapons that have no purpose other than killing.

“We must work together to protect the lives of those we love and stop what’s happening in our communities. I urge the Illinois General Assembly to take a stand and pass this legislation that will save lives and protect communities.

The Governor today was joined by Congresswoman Robin Kelly who recently released the Kelly Report on Gun Violence in America, the first-ever Congressional analysis of the nation’s gun violence epidemic that offers a blueprint for ending the crisis.

Senaten Bill 3659 – the Illinois Public Safety Act – was introduced during the recent spring Legislative session by State Senator Dan Kotowski (D-Park Ridge) and supported by Governor Quinn. It bans the possession, leverans, sale and purchase of assault weapons, large capacity ammunition feeding devices such as magazines or clips, och .50 caliber rifles and cartridges in Illinois. Valid Firearms Owners Identification Card (FOID) holders who possess any of these devices at the time the law is enacted would be allowed to keep them, but could not transfer or sell them except to a family member. The legislation also requires background checks for the transfer of firearms except to a family member or at a gun show

(Redaktören: Fetstil till för betoning)

Självklart, the bad guys kommer inte obey what’s stipulated in the Illinois Public Safety Act if it becomes law. But here’s what’s really messed-up about the bans the Democrats are pushing.

According to Federal Bureau of Investigation statistics, so-called “assault weapons” and .50 caliber rifles are rarely used in crimes- particularly murders- around the state of Illinois.

From Table 20, “Murder by State, Types of Weapons, 2012” on the FBI’s “Crime in the U.S. 2012” web page (last year I could find pertinent data available for):

Illinois (“limited supplemental homicide data were received”)
Total murders (“Total number of murders for which supplemental homicide data were received”): 509
Total firearms: 439
• Handguns: 429
• Rifles: 4
• Shotguns: 2
• Firearms (type unknown): 4

439 firearm-related murders in Illinois in 2012. With a rifle (type unknown) definitely used in only 4 of those homicides.

Ban “assault weapons” and .50 caliber rifles. Ja, that will solve the rampant violence.

Something tells me these Democratic politicians are trying to dupe voters into thinking they can end the ongoing carnage in this election year with such legislation.

Not going to happen, as the so-called Illinois Public Safety Act doesn’t even come close to getting to the root of the problem.

Seehintsabove.

Republikanska kandidater för Illinois guvernör Split på "Assault vapen" förbud?

I November, ett val kommer att hållas för guvernören i Illinois. De fyra republikanska kandidaterna för kontoret- Statliga senatorer Bill Brady, Kirk Dillard, Ange kassör Dan Rutherford, och affärsman Bruce Rauner- fick nyligen kampanjen frågeformulär av Associated Press, var en av frågorna i vilka pistol rättigheter.

Enligt AP, två av de fyra kandidaterna kan stödja ett förbud mot så kallade "assault vapen."

Från i tisdags:

I en kampanjenkät för Associated Press, de fyra kandidaterna — ange Sens. Bill Brady och Kirk Dillard, Kassör Dan Rutherford och affärsman Bruce Rauner — alla sagt pistol rättigheter måste skyddas utan att några offentliga garantier bör finnas.

Fyrana skilde sig över assault-stil kanoner — hög kapacitet vapen som har använts i några av de dödligaste massavrättningar. De för närvarande inte är olaglig statewide, och föreslagna statewide förbud backas upp av demokratiska Gov. Pat Quinn drogs från behandling förra året i Springfield…

Dillard, i Hinsdale, och Rauner, av Falun, båda lämnade öppna möjligheten de skulle stödja ett förbud. Rutherford, av Chenoa, Brady, över Bloomington, motsätta sig ett sådant förbud

(Redaktören: Kursiv stil för betoning)

Emellertid, den Chicago Sun-Times hemsida rapporterar att endast en av fyra kandidater kan vara öppna för ett "assault vapen" förbud. Natasha Korecki skrev i torsdags:

Tre av fyra republikanerna tävlar i guvernörsvalet primära säger att de tror att alla Illinois invånare har rätt till egna assault vapen.

Illinois kassör Dan Rutherford av Chenoa, staten Sen. Bill Brady Bloomington och riskkapitalist Bruce Rauner i Winnetka sade torsdag kväll att de tror att det är en rättighet…

Bara Dillard kringgås frågan — säger han trodde det var bättre kvar upp till den federala regeringen att besluta…

(Redaktören: Kursiv stil för betoning)

Så vad om Rauner? Associated Press tyckte att hans enkät svar var "mer vaga" än Dillard. Vända tillbaka till sin pjäs:

Rauner gav en mer svävande svar, säger han stöder bakgrund kontroller att hålla kanoner från brottslingar och personer med psykisk sjukdom.

“Utöver vad som kräver en mycket noggrann avvägning mellan att främja allmänhetens säkerhet och skydda konstitutionella rättigheter,” Rauner skrev…

Om inte Kirk Dillard och Bruce Rauner faktiskt kommer ut och säger sig vara emot en stat AWB, Jag skulle krita dem som eventuellt stöd för ett "assault vapen" förbud om de politiska vindarna blåser i den riktningen.

Highland Park, Illinois, Sued For Banning ‘Assault Weapons’

Tidigare i år, a number of Illinois municipalities passed “assault weapon” bans.

One of these towns was Highland Park, on Chicago’s far North Shore. From a July 2 pressmeddelande:

The Highland Park City Council passed an ordinance banning assault weapons within City-limits at the June 24 City Council Meeting, after hearing from many residents, interest groups and individuals offering perspective on all sides of the issue, in writing and in person. The ban, modeled after Cook County’s assault weapons ordinance, would amend Chapter 134 of the City Code. The ordinance was effective July 8, 2013. Residents have 90 days to comply with the provisions set within the ordinance

Having worked closely with a number of Highland Park city hall staff some years back as the assistant to the mayor of a neighboring town, I remember thinking to myself, “I wonder if those guys are going to miss all that money that could be pissed away in the coming lawsuit.”

Fast forward to the other day, when the Associated Press reported the City of Highland Park is being sued for its new “assault weapons” ban. From the website of Chicago ABC affiliate Channel 7 på December 20:

A gun rights group has filed its first lawsuit against one of the Illinois communities that rushed to pass an assault weapons ban before a state law allowed people to carry concealed weapons in public, and the group strongly hinted Friday that the lawsuit will not be its last.

I am not at liberty to talk about (other possible lawsuits), but let’s just say we’re always working,” nämnda Richard Pearson, the executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, which joined the lawsuit filed by a Highland Park pediatrician against the well-to-do community north of Chicago. “We are going after them wherever they are.

In the lawsuit, the rifle association and Dr. Arie Friedman, a pediatrician and owner of semi-automatic weapons, contend that that Highland Park, where Friedman lives, did not have a legal right to ban the weapons that he says he keeps for the lawful purposes of target shooting and self-defense.

Further, the lawsuit suggests that by lumping in the kinds of semi-automatic weapons Friedman owns with fully automatic assault weapons, the ban infringes on the rights of people to possess one of the most commonly ownedsporting rifles” i USA.

Ownership of firearms that are commonly possessed by law-abiding citizens for lawful purposesis a fundamental right under the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution,” according to the lawsuit

Legal representatives for the City claim the ban passes constitutional muster.

Uppenbarligen, that’s not up to them to decide anymore.

Under tiden, I’m guessing legal fees for time and work spent on the issue will add up while other Illinois towns that enacted regulations/bans on these so-called “assault weapons” nervously monitor how the lawsuit plays out for the Lake County community.

Chicago-området lagar om självförsvar verktyg

(UPPDATERING: Revised to reflect City of Chicago’s passage of Substitute Ordinance SO2013-6015 on September 11, 2013, regarding personal safety tools)

From my research, I’ve noticed that quite a few Chicago-area residents wanting to find out more about the legality of their personal safety tools in their communities, County, and the state of Illinois often have a difficult time locating that information on the Internet easily.

Which is a shame, considering the amount of changes that have been made recently to state and local laws concerning firearms and other self-defense tools. Till exempel, not only is concealed-carry now on the books at the state-level, but the City of Chicago and Cook County have tightened their gun “control” measures and there are a number of new “assault weapon” bans in effect in several metro-area communities.

Så, in my “local” post for the day I thought I’d share with Chicagoland readers some links on the Internet where a bunch of this info can be found.

Enligt min mening, I’d approach general queries from the state level down to the municipal level. No use trying to find out if something is legal in your community if the state bans it and they supersede local laws in a particular area.

Endast 7 Illinois Municipalities Pass ‘Assault Weapon’ Bans By State-Imposed Deadline

On July 1, JAG skrev the following concerning new “assault weapon” bans being considered by a number of Illinois municipalities:

Illinois guvernör har Pat Quinn endast fram till juli 9 att underteckna Illinois House Bill 183 (so-called “Firearm Concealed Carry Act”), diskussion och genomförandet av "assault vapen" förbud i Chicago-området kommuner har pågått. Tillbaka på juni 21 I mentioned an e-mail I received from the National Rifle Association’s Institute for Legislative Action that pointed out:

HB 183 innehåller en bestämmelse som tillåter vissa orter upp till tio dagar från datum för antagande att stifta lagar om förbud mot så kallade "assault vapen" innan denna lagstiftning förbjuder lokala regeringar från att göra det vid ett senare tillfälle.

Väl, Illinois House Bill 183 is now law, and the deadline for enacting new “assault weapon” bans has passed. From the NRA-ILA yesterday:

Illinois: Many Local Governments Rush to Enact Last-Minute Gun Bans, But Few Succeed in Circumventing Statewide Regulation of Firearms

With enactment into state law of concealed carry legislation, House Bill 183, a new fight for gun rights in Illinois was started. A clause included in this new law allowed home rule local governments to enact their own so-called “assault weapon” bans within ten days of House Bill 183’s enactment. In the days preceding and immediately following enactment, a flurry of city council meetings were scheduled to discuss or pass a ban on popularly owned semi-automatic firearms.

Approximately sixty different local meetings were scheduled in total, and many Illinois NRA members and gun owners attended those meetings and contacted their local officials in opposition to these hastily crafted restrictions. Due to the efforts of those law-abiding citizens defending their Second Amendment rights, only seven new “assault weapon” bans were enacted throughout the state (listed below) before the deadline – Friday, Juli 19.

If you or anyone you know have been arrested or harassed under a local ban or ordinance, please contact the NRA Legislative Counsel’s office at (703) 267-1161.

Localities with new bans:

• Calumet Park – (No language available)
• Dolton – Assault Weapon Ban (No language available)
• Evanston – Assault Weapon Ban (Sida 11)
• Highland Park – Assault Weapon Ban
• Melrose Park – Assault Weapon Ban (No language available)
• North Chicago – Assault Weapon Ban
• Skokie – Assault Weapon Ban (Sida 50)

Other local governments passed ordinances pertaining to firearms storage and transportation. Those localities include:

• Country Club Hills
• Deerfield
• University Park
• Winnetka

Thank you to all members who attended local meetings and voiced their opposition to bans or unreasonable regulations on firearms commonly owned for self-defense. While Illinois now has concealed carry, continued vigilance is necessary to ensure protection of our rights. Your NRA-ILA will continue to fight unreasonable restrictions and will keep you updated.

Next up for these 7 municipalities concerning this issue?

Lawsuits, I suspect.

Chicago-området "Assault vapen" förbud: Highland Park, Melrose Park rösta ja medan andra förorter diskutera

Illinois guvernör har Pat Quinn endast fram till juli 9 att underteckna Illinois House Bill 183 (så kallade "skjutvapen dold bära Act”), diskussion och genomförandet av "assault vapen" förbud i Chicago-området kommuner har pågått. Tillbaka på juni 21 JAG nämns e-post jag fick från National Rifle Association's Institute lagstiftningsåtgärder som påpekade för:

HB 183 innehåller en bestämmelse som tillåter vissa orter upp till tio dagar från datum för antagande att stifta lagar om förbud mot så kallade "assault vapen" innan denna lagstiftning förbjuder lokala regeringar från att göra det vid ett senare tillfälle.

Lagstiftare i staden Highland Park och byn av Melrose Park röstade därefter för att förbjuda så kallade "assault vapen" i offentliga utfrågningar hölls på juni 24.

Gun förbud förrättningar förväntas också diskuteras ikväll i staden av Lake Forest, Byn Skokie, och byn Wheeling.

Ett antal andra förorter har också sparkat kring idén om en lokal AWB ordinance, men har avstått från att agera så långt.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel Proposing Stricter Gun ‘Control’ Laws

The last two weekends in the city of Chicago have been particularly bloody:

Juni 21-23 (1st weekend of summer): 6 dödade, 31 wounded by gunfire

Juni 14-16 (Father’s Day Weekend): 8 dödade, 39 wounded by gunfire

Under tiden, City Hall touts “crime is down” based on what some claim is questionable data.

The other night, after watching the news about last weekend’s carnage, I turned to my girlfriend and said:

Just wait. This week Rahm Emanuel will announce more gun “control” in Chicago on law-abiding residents since he can’t do anything about the idiots who don’t care about the law and are doing all the shooting and killing.

It didn’t take long for my prediction to pan out. From Channel 9 Chicago news this morning:


“Mayor Emanuel proposes stricter gun laws”
Kanal 9 Chicago Video

He’s the one they call Dr. Feelgood.

Here’s another ground-breaking prediction for you:

The shootings and killings will continue to mount this summer in Chicago because it’s not law-abiding gun owners that are the problem.

It’s the criminals who don’t give a rat’s ass about gun “control” laws that are shooting up the place.

Chockerande, Jag vet.

Fines? These criminals can’t afford no stinking fines.

And jail? More like a lecture, a hug, and a pat on the butt, mer sannolikt.

Trots allt, this is Chicago (spoken in an accent like the GEICO Gecko says “this is New York”).

Flera Chicago förorter anser "Assault vapen" förbud av statliga undanhållit Carry lagstiftning

Flera Chicago-området kommuner överväger förbud mot så kallade "assault vapen" till följd av undanhållit carry lagstiftning som är gått av Illinois generalförsamling och väntar på underskrift av guvernör Pat Quinn. Från ett e-postmeddelande fick jag igår från National Rifle Association's Institute lagstiftningsåtgärder för:

Illinois: Localities försöker anta anti pistol förrättningar i väntan på skjutvapen förköp lag

Din NRA-ILA har lärt sig nyligen att vissa orter i Illinois hastigt att överväga förbud mot Populära halvautomatiska vapen medan House Bill 183 väntar övervägande av guvernör Pat Quinn (D). Om antagen lag, House Bill 183 kommer att innehålla omfattande förköp av pistol-relaterade lokala förordningar för någon med en FOID kort och förbehåller sig regleringen av alla lagar om den dolda bära av handeldvapen till staten. Det ger också skydd till dem som reser med skjutvapen genom att tillhandahålla omfattande förköp av lokala förordningar som tillämpas för personer med en FOID kort som transporterar skjutvapen enligt alla statliga regleringar. Skjutvapen förköp förhindrar lagliga dold carry licenstagare och skjutvapen ägarna fångas i ett nät av förvirrande lokala förordningar och lagar som de går om deras dagliga rutiner. Emellertid, HB 183 innehåller en bestämmelse som tillåter vissa orter upp till tio dagar från datum för antagande att stifta lagar om förbud mot så kallade "assault vapen" innan denna lagstiftning förbjuder lokala regeringar från att göra det vid ett senare tillfälle.

Quinn har beviljats en förlängning av trettio dagar av en federal domstol att överväga att underteckna HB 183, lämnar gott om tid för localities att anta anti pistol förrättningar.

Några av dessa localities är:

Buffalo Grove
Evanston
Highland Park
Orland Park
Wheeler (Redaktören: Jag tror att NRA-ILA innebar Wheeling)

Medan pistol lagar kommer att förbigås för dem med en FOID kort enligt HB 183, dess språk av senaste förbud mot "assault weapons" kunde inkluderar populära och vanliga handeldvapen och kringgå denna skjutvapen förköp. Allvarlig oro kvarstår om de potentiella kryphål och juridiska frågor i huset Bill 183.

NRA medlemmar uppmanas att kontakta din lokala regeringstjänstemän och respektfullt uppmana dem att motsätta sig någon förrättning som skulle begränsa laglydiga Illinois medborgarnas rättigheter eller hindra deras rätt till självförsvar. Håll ögonen öppna för NRA-ILA för uppdateringar.

Illinois Right-To-Carry Deadline Extended Again

Juli 22. That’s the new deadline set by the U.S. Supreme Court for Illinois to put a concealed-carry law in place. From an Associated Press-authored piece in Statlig tidning-registret Igår:

USA. Supreme Court granted an extension Tuesday for Illinois’s attorney general to decide whether to appeal a court order permitting the state’s gun owners to carry concealed firearms.

Justice Elena Kagan granted a delay until July 22, essentially a second 30 days of leeway that allows Attorney General Lisa Madigan time to craft a response.

USA. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois’ ban on concealed-carry back in December 2012 and set a June 9 deadline for the state to have a CCW law on the books. The appellate court subsequently pushed that back to July 9 at the request of the Illinois Attorney General, saying it wouldn’t allow another extension.

Seeing that both chambers of the Illinois General Assembly passed the concealed-carry legislation (Illinois House Bill 183) with more than the three-fifths vote needed to override Illinois Governor Quinn if he offers changes/vetoes the bill, it’s suspected by some that the extensions are no more than stalling tactics to give Illinois municipalities the chance to pass so-called “assault weapon” bans before the CCW legislation awaiting the Governor’s signature prohibits it.

Illinois undanhållit Carry senaste: Attorney General Lisa Madigan Asks For Second Extension Of Deadline

I tisdags, JAG bloggat about the status of concealed-carry in the state of Illinois. Jag skrev:

Last December, USA. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Illinois’ total ban on concealed-carry- the only state in the Union that has one- and required Illinois to put a concealed-carry law in place by June 9. Here’s the latest on the right to carry in Illinois:

• On Tuesday, Juni 4, the federal appeals court granted Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan’s request for a 30-day extension with the understanding that Governor Pat Quinn would have more time to review CCW legislation (Illinois House Bill 183) passed by the Illinois General Assembly the prior week. According to an Associated Press-authored piece in Statlig tidning-registret (Springfield) samma dag, the court said it wouldn’t allow another extension past the new July 9 deadline

“The court said it wouldn’t allow another extension past the new July 9 deadline.”

That hasn’t deterred Attorney General Madigan from asking for another one. From the AP’s John O’Connor on Statlig tidning-registret (Springfield) website earlier Monday:

Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan has asked the U.S. Supreme Court for a second monthlong extension of time to decide whether to appeal a lower court order allowing citizens to carry concealed guns.

Madigan requested a delay until July 24 to take action on a 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that sent lawmakers scrambling this spring to adopt legislation allowing the public possession of concealed firearms, according to a petition filed late Friday but made public Monday.

One reason for the requested extensions could be to give Illinois municipalities the chance to pass so-called “assault weapon” bans before the CCW legislation awaiting Governor Quinn’s signature prohibits it. Sara Burnett of the Associated Press wrote on the Peoria Journal Star’s website back on June 9:

Lt. Gov. Sheila Simon is urging Illinois communities to consider banning assault-style weapons before new legislation is signed that could prohibit local governments from doing so in the future.

The General Assembly approved a measure last month that would end Illinoislast-in-the-nation prohibition on the concealed carry of firearms. The legislation, prompted by a federal court ruling that found Illinoislaw unconstitutional, also prohibits future assault-weapons bans. It allows existing bans, such as one in Chicago, to remain in place

Simon said if the bill is signed into law as written, cities with so-calledhome ruledecision-making authority would have just 10 days to prohibit assault-style weapons.

Illinois State Rifle Association’s Synopsis Of Illinois Concealed-Carry Bill

Interested in finding out what’s in the Illinois concealed-carry bill that was recently passed in the Illinois General Assembly (now awaiting Governor Pat Quinn’s signature) without having to pour over all the legalese?

Väl, this morning I came across a synopsis of Illinois House Bill 183 (as amended) from the Illinois State Rifle Association on the shooting sports news website AmmoLand.com. ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson wrote Wednesday:

Many of you have been asking what the bill contains – below is a brief outline. This synopsis of HB1083 is not legal advice.

Regulations:

• One statewide shall-issue licensing standard.
• With regard to concealed carry licenses, preempts local authority of governments to regulate handguns and ammunition for handguns, including licensing, registration, and transportation.
• With regard to FOID card holders, preempts local governments from regulating the transportation of all firearms and ammunition.
• Not preempted are AWB enacted prior to or within 10 days of the enactment of this legislation – after that date, new AWBs would be preempted. Local governments could still regulate rifles and shotguns, but not handguns.
• Grants “safe haven” protection for people carrying concealed while in their vehicle even in prohibited areas.
• Upon exit from their vehicle, the firearm must be locked in their vehicle. If they wish to lock their firearm in their trunk, it must be unloaded before exiting the vehicle.
• License to be issued by the Illinois State Police.
• $150.00 fee for 5 år.
• Requires 16 hours of training, including range time. Upp till 8 hours of credit will be recognized for those who had hunter safety, was honorably discharged from the military, or had other CCW training. Vid denna tid, states with shorter training time, such as Utah, may only be credited 4 timmar. The administrative rules of what the allowances will be, have not yet been determined.
• Private property owners can post their property prohibiting concealed carry. “Safe haven” still applies to their parking lots.
• Restaurants with 50% or more of their receipts from food, but still serving alcohol, are legal to carry in, but are still subject to private property posting by the owners or operators.
• Law enforcement may object to a person they believe to be a “clear and present danger” to themselves or others. Applicants can appeal that decision to the Concealed Carry Licensing Board.
• The State Police have 180 days from the effective date of this bill to be set up to begin processing applications.
• Within 60 days of the effective date of this bill, the Illinois State Police shall begin approval of firearm training courses and instructors.
•There is no reciprocity, but “safe haven” applies to out of state concealed carry permit holders.

Jesse Jackson Calls For Department Of Homeland Security To Patrol Streets Of Chicago

“State lawmakers, Rep. John Fritchey, 11th, och Rep. LaShawn Ford, 8th, are calling for Governor Quinn to deploy the Illinois National Guard to Chicago’s violent areas… 113 people have died in Chicago so far this year.”

-NBC Chicago website, April 26, 2010

113 murdered in Chicago from January to late April 2010, and some state legislators were calling for the Illinois National Guard to be deployed.

506 “official” homicides in 2012, and it’s the Department of Homeland Security that’s now being requested to patrol the streets of Chicago in an attempt to put a halt to escalating “gun violence.”

Den februari 1, the Chicago-based Rainbow PUSH Coalition (RPC) announced in a press release:

Chicago, IL (Fredag, Februari 1, 2013) — Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. and Rainbow PUSH Coalition call for immediate Federal Intervention and Homeland Security in Chicago as January homicide totals exceeded 45. I morse, in Chicago, a woman’s van was riddled with bullets as she was executed on a major highway. Two days ago, a 15-year-old Dr. Martin Luther King College Prep honor student, who had recently performed as a majorette at the President’s inaugural ceremony, was killed after trying to seek shelter from the rain less than a mile away from the President’s home. Another student was shot but survived. The gunman is still at large. Days before these tragedies, seven people were killed, 6 from gunshots, all in one day; most of their murders have been unsolved. Reverend Jesse Jackson reaffirms that gun control reform is critical and the ban on assault weapons paramount.

Reverend Jackson repeated his call for federal intervention before a march on the South Side this Saturday. Renita Young reported on the Reuters website that same day:

Civil rights leader Jesse Jackson and relatives of victims of fatal shootings in Chicago urged President Barack Obama on Saturday to come back to his hometown and address the gun violence plaguing the city.

Before a march on the city’s South Side, Jackson, a former Democratic presidential candidate, said America’s third most populous city needed more help than Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police superintendent Garry McCarthy could offer.

When the president shows up, it shows ultimate national seriousness,” said Jackson, a Chicago resident. He also called for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago.

“America’s third most populous city needed more help than Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police superintendent Garry McCarthy could offer.”

Sounds like even the Reverend Jackson recognizes the Chicago Police Department could use some more manpower these days.

“He also called for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to help patrol the streets of Chicago.”

When I hear calls for the National Guard, Homeland Security, or some other entity to descend upon the “City By The Lake,” I think of Bruce Willis’ line as General William Devereaux from the 1998 film The Siege:

The Army is a broad sword, not a scalpel. Trust me, senator- you do not want the Army in an American city.

Obama Gun ‘Control’ To Extend Beyond Gun, Ammunition Magazine Bans?

This should keep the panic buying going for a while longer with anything firearms-related. Philip Rucker reported on the Washington Post website this Saturday:

The White House is weighing a far broader and more comprehensive approach to curbing the nation’s gun violence than simply reinstating an expired ban on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, according to multiple people involved in the administration’s discussions.

A working group led by Vice President Biden is seriously considering measures backed by key law enforcement leaders that would require universal background checks for firearm buyers, track the movement and sale of weapons through a national database, strengthen mental health checks, and stiffen penalties for carrying guns near schools or giving them to minors, the sources said.

To sell such changes, the White House is developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses. White House aides have also been in regular contact with advisers to New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg (JAG), an outspoken gun-control advocate who could emerge as a powerful surrogate for the Obama administration’s agenda.

The Biden group, formed last month after the massacre at a Newtown, Conn., elementary school that killed 20 children and six adults, plans to submit a package of recommendations to President Obama this month. Once Obama’s proposals are set, he plans to lead a public-relations offensive to generate popular support.

Väl, som jag bloggat tidigare idag, Chicago Democrats tried pushing “far broader and more comprehensive” gun “control” on Illinois residents två gånger in the last couple of days. And failed. This in a state where “The Machine” is incredibly-influential in state politics and even got their man- Pat Quinn- elected governor in 2010 despite him winning endast 4 av 102 counties in the state. I’m sure the Chicago Democrats currently wielding power in the nation’s capital are fully-aware of the gun “control” debacle in their “home” state by now. In light of these latest developments, it will be interesting to see what exactly the “Biden group” ends up proposing.

En sak till. Regarding what Rucker said about the White House “developing strategies to work around the National Rifle Association that one source said could include rallying support from Wal-Mart and other gun retailers for measures that would benefit their businesses.” I have a feeling retailers who are caught “playing ball” with the gun “control” crowd will be punished by many in the firearm community. Dessa dagar, I routinely encounter comments from visitors on gun-related websites, Bloggar, and forums declaring that they will no longer be buying anything from Dick’s Sporting Goods and Cheaper Than Dirt after the two retailers suspended sales of firearms in the days after the Newtown, Connecticut-shootings. Other retailers possibly considering such an alliance with the Obama White House on gun “control” will almost certainly be watching to see how these decisions made by Dick’s and Cheaper Than Dirt pan out for them.

Gun rättigheter 2, Gun ‘Control’ 0 In Illinois

Gun “control” legislation has been shot down again in the “Land of Lincoln.”

Kurt Erickson reported this morning on The Southern Illinoisan (Carbondale, Illinois) hemsida:

A push to ban semi-automatic weapons in Illinois fizzled again Sunday.

Two days after the Illinois Senate failed to act on a ban, the sponsor of a similar proposal in the House announced he would not be calling the controversial measure for a vote in the waning days of the legislative session.

Statligt Rep. Edward Acevedo, D-Chicago, said he will instead re-introduce the measure this spring

Meeting in a rare Sunday session as the clock ticks down on the current General Assembly, the possibility of a vote on legislation that would have limited what kinds of weapons could be owned by Illinoisans brought a number of gun rights activists to the Statehouse.

When the decision was announced that supporters would not proceed with the legislation, opponents gathered in a House committee hearing room and cheered and chanted in favor of the Second Amendment.

“They clearly don’t have the votes for this bill,” said Todd Vandermyde, who represents the National Rifle Association.

Vandermyde said a furious lobbying effort kept the gun control supporters from “sneaking” the bill through during the lame-duck session, which ends at noon Wednesday when a new General Assembly is sworn in.

And from the Journal Star (Peoria, Illinois) hemsida i natt:

A House judiciary committee on Sunday was scheduled to vote on limiting assault weapons. But state Rep. Elaine Nekritz, D-Northbrook, the committee’s chairwoman, announced at the start of the meeting the vote was called off

The House feels that if the votes aren’t there to pass something between now and late Tuesday in one of the chambers, then there’s no reason for us to act on that as well,” Nekritz said.

As it stands right now in Illinois, gun rights 2, gun “control” 0.

I suspect additional statements in support of more gun “kontroll” in Illinois could be coming from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Governor Pat Quinn after this latest setback.

Illinois Democrats Now Attempting To Ban, Register Guns And Magazines In State House Of Representatives

No doubt about it- the fight for the preservation of gun rights will be an ongoing one. Especially here in Illinois. From the National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action website today:

Anti-Gunners Seek to Exploit Tragedy to Advance their Anti-Freedom Agenda to Ban and Register Guns and Magazines – Contact your state Representative TODAY

Yesterday when Senate President John Cullerton was unable to garner thirty votes in the Illinois Senate to pass legislation banning firearms and magazines, he postponed the floor votes on these bills until next week. Now Governor Patrick Quinn and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel have shifted their anti-gun focus to the state House of Representatives in an attempt to ban your guns and magazines during the Lame Duck session on Sunday through Tuesday.

As a way of distracting attention from his failure to control and reduce out-of-control violent crime in Chicago, Emanuel is once again actively seeking to restrict your Second Amendment rights. Emanuel is infamous for saying “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” Convenience should never be used as a factor. No time should ever be considered a good time to attack the law-abiding public and strip it of its rights and civil liberties. Som tidigare rapporterats Här, the Illinois Senate recently attempted and continues to try to pass two extreme anti-gun bills which, om antagit, will ban, tax and require registration for semi-automatic firearms or detachable magazines, impose severe restrictions on shooting ranges and create a myriad of new laws that will easily turn an entire class of law-abiding citizens into felons. After their efforts stalled yesterday in the Illinois Senate, thanks to your efforts to call and e-mail your state Senators, it appears that Emanuel and Quinn are still hell-bent on exploiting recent tragedies to achieve their goal of making YOU a felon by shifting their anti-gun focus to the state House. So they are now looking to introduce similar gun and magazine ban registration language in the House when it convenes on Sunday for the last few days of their lame duck session.

Representative Edward Acevedo just filed an amendment to Senaten Bill 2899 which would accomplish this. This bill is currently scheduled to be heard by the House Judiciary I – Civil Law Committee on Sunday afternoon and will be considered by the full House soon after. It is critical that you call your state Representative TODAY and respectfully demand that he or she oppose any and all anti-gun initiatives, especially Senate Bill 2899, and stand up for your rights!

While details are still emerging as to the particulars of this legislation, one thing is for certain: Anti-gun politicians are attempting to sacrifice your constitutional rights as a scapegoat for the criminal acts of violence in Chicago by gangs and drug dealers. While it might be convenient right now, it is irresponsible for these anti-gun politicians to launch an attack on your rights as a consolation prize just because they lost in their attempts to flout the Constitution and deny Illinois citizens their right to keep and bear arms.

They may not have not achieved success in courts or in the Senate thus far, but they are still determined to go after your rights. Don’t let them succeed in banning your firearms or magazines as an excuse for stopping criminals and lunatics from misusing them. Criminals — per definition — violate laws, especially gun control laws, including often: murder, rape, rån, drug-dealing, gang violence, firearm theft, carrying concealed firearms without a license/permit, federal gun-free school zones. They do not obey gun bans, register their firearms, or get subjected to any gun control schemes (like the lone state ban on carrying concealed firearms for self-defense) that only affect and penalize law-abiding citizens like you. Your telephone calls TODAY to your state Representatives will determine the outcome of this very serious assault on your Second Amendment rights.

The NRA-ILA will continue to send legislative updates as details become available. Emellertid, it is of the utmost importance that you act NOW to stop this gun and magazine ban. Call your state Representative IMMEDIATELY and respectfully express your opposition to banning firearms or magazines, and urge them to vote against any and all measures that do so, particularly Senate Bill 2899.

To reach the main line for the Illinois General Assembly, Ring 217-782-2000.
