Are things getting better here in IL?
 
We all know that Illinois has some of the worst gun control laws in the US, but are they getting better or worse. In the last couple weeks we have seen lib. law makers try to introduce two new laws, the registration garbage and now an ammo tax. Are these the last attempts by a desperate Dem party or are they going to get their way? Last time around CC missed by just a few votes, this time there might be enough to get it to pass (although our dictator...err Governor says he will veto). Just trying to get things going in this section.

Gotta love illinois still say they should just take everything north of I-80 and call it the state of chicago we'd have CC in two minutes. I don't see the registration garbage passing 50/50 on the ammo tax you know how illinois loves to tax ****. I hope CC passes though it'll get veto'd we can hope the veto gets overturned though doubtful. Wish i could make it to IGOLD on march 7th but i have to work. just keep hoping or move if u can ;)

HEY, I'm 2 miles north of I80, I don't want to be part of Chitcago! How about just Crook County.

Another vote for Cook county seceeding from the state of Illinois.

i'm kewl with just Crook county just figured that way they might not complain about not enough land. that or u can move ur house :p either way works. question for u guys how much of that 50 cent tax will go to the actual trauma centers?? My vote is 10 cents at the Most rest will line the pockets of our friendly politicans

The main problem I see is that we are a silent majority, my brother is a great example. He is a hunter and a fisherman, but he really does not car about gun owners rights. Call him lazy or whatever, but it is people like him who need to take a stand, vote and be heard. 99% of the people I know do not feel the same way as the gun control people. So why is it they get to make the laws? Well because they are vocal and vote.

Illinois is a Anti-Gun Blue State to it's core....

Exactly! They take almost all the money then say we need to tax this and that now because we r broke. Give me a break. The coats on they're back cost more than all my assets put together. Pussies.

No just Chicago and cook county. Look at the voting results and listen to what politicians from down state are saying. Most of the state voted red last time, but the Dems know how to get the minority votes.
