My uncle actually supports this and gun control but he claims he supports the second amendment.

Here in Virginia, we usually send our former Governors to the Senate. There in Illinois, they send them to Joliet.

3. Have spent a few years designing presentations. Lesson from the Society of Illumination Engineers- Red type on a black background= illegible. As does Canary Yellow on white. Try Bright yellow against Royal Blue.
Thank you for the feed back, I'll play around and go with mess w/ those suggestions!

And I envy you - I wish Illinois would allow us to send Governors packing after 4 years.

How about these Big City Mayors ? Bloomburg is Anti Gun yet Drives in a Hardened,Bomb Proof, Bullet Resistant up to .50 Cal SUV w Run Flat Tires w a Team of PSD Detectives carrying 5k in Rounds, MP-5's plus Handguns in 2 SUV's, he claims Central Park is safe and threatens anyone carrying a FA will do 3-5 w/o exception... I could safely stroll thru Kabul using pages of the Koran as Toilet Paper w his PSD team, how unrealistic !

I think if you are a politian that supports and tries to pass any form of FA banning or regulation type legislation you should banned from firearms. You should not be allowed to have armed bodyguards while you disarm your citizenry. You should have EVERY gun you own confiscated. And you should wear a sign that reads, "I am the mayor/Representative/Senator. I am unarmed and unprotected. I want to take your freedom away." Then they should walk through the most dangerous part of town alone, just like in the Die Hard movie.

Bloomberg is one of the numerous idiots who inherit big money, then consider themselves to be a superior species worthy of special priviledge and "rights" that us riff-raff are not worthy of. After all, his life, wealth, and power are all that matter. It's why the Universe was created 13.7 billion years ago. He and his cronies are the beneficiaries it was all designed for.
The dynasty in Chicago is much the same. Nobody but the dignitaries are worthy of any rights, safety, self-respect, or freedom.

I think, that if you ban guns from citizens, take them from LE too. Because, after all, why would they need guns if nobody else can have them?

Oh wait, what was that?

Criminals will still have guns? WHAT!?

I would guess that one of the reasons criminals migrate to Chicago is that they know their prey will be unarmed and defenseless. Chicago has long been dedicated to keeping the streets safe for criminals.
