I've done what I could. I've emailed, called, left messages, etc since I found out about these bills. Not a single one of these scared ****less Democrats of Illinois has the ideological fortitude to stand up for what they believe in and respond to any of my correspondence. They're all cowards, and one day, God willing, they'll learn the lesson full force of why Gun Control only creates victims and emboldens criminals.

Representative Edward J. Acevedo (D)
Representative Ann Williams (D)
Representative Greg Harris (D)
Representative Barbara Flynn Currie (D)
Representative Maria Antonia Berrios (D)
Representative Karen May (D)
Representative Carol A. Sente (D)
Representative Deborah Mell (D)
Representative Marlow H. Colvin (D)
Representative Kelly M. Cassidy (D)
Representative Luis Arroyo (D)

Anyone besides me find it odd that EVERY REPRESENTATIVE listed above has a (D) next to their name? These are the same people whose security uses the same weapons that they seek to disarm from us...and refuse to give us a reason other than "it's for your own good".

This state is a JOKE.

What the hell is "high capacity ammunition"? This is why I will never go to Illinois.
