New Background Check Law Will Make IL Safe
 
Yep, thanks to their anti-gun governator, IL residents will be subject to mandatory background checks when they buy a gun from a private citizen. Surely the criminals who voted for Quinn and Rahm Baby will abide by this law. Yep, this feel good crap will make Chicago "safe. :D

Quote:

Private gun sales in Illinois now require background checks after Gov. Pat Quinn signed tough new legislation intended to close a federal loophole that prevented law enforcement from tracking who was buying guns on the street.

“Guns are a plague on too many of our communities.… This common-sense law will help our law enforcement crack down on crime and make our streets safe,” Governor Quinn, a Democrat, said in a statement released Sunday.

As soon as a politician utters the words "common sense laws" when talking about firearms, it's a given they have no clue what they are talking about.

Why won't the rest of the voters wake up and get their heads out of their collective hind quarters?

I look to see something like this on a federal level, probably in two years or so.

How many guns have you seen with a criminal history?
If you answered none, it is because It's the people not the gun.

I feel safer already, OH wait I don't live in a anti-gun combat zone like Chitcago.

Because they believe it'll keep us safe, too.


I went to a get together Saturday night. It's a group of us who get together regularly to play board games. This past time it was also a going away party for one of the couples who go to "game night". They are moving to Georgia. I had to listen to them tease me all evening about the gun laws in the state they are moving to. :(

Because the voters that they are getting have absolutely no idea who they are voting for, all they know is they get a free gift card of their choice for voting for them . Thanks for your vote :confused:

Absolutely correct...if it is fair, be sure it will be unfair. If it is reformed, be sure it will need reforming, if it is "smart", but sure it will be the dumbest thing you ever have seen.

To be a politician and to make your living from the votes of the community ensures that you must dupe the electorate into believing they will be better off by electing said person. It is my opinion that elected officials are actually actors. Not on the big screen per say, but they are acting, not showing you their real personality and motivations.....just using their best snake-oil salesmanship to sell you something you are sure not to want...it often entails lying.

Any competent businessman or woman could make our country better than it is today. I know I could. Business people tend to be good, not look good (think Billy Crystal)...politicians focus on looking good...(you look marvelous! SNL). All image, no substance.

Politicians mostly know diddley squat about running an enterprise. The smart ones, who are actually focused on making the country a better place surround themselves with people smarter than themselves and let them run the business side.

The radical politicians surround themselves with like minded people and work on getting reelected and maintaining power. Our current President is an actor and a great orator. People wonder why he is still campaigning and traveling the country and some read into it some great intellectual feat of distancing himself from scandals and such....not it...the real reason he is campaigning is because that is the only thing he is good at and he is very good at it...make no mistake about it! He is just doing what he does...and he is incompetent on things related to security and budgets and has drunk deeply the kool-aide of socialism.

Politicians say citizens need to be engaged and interested in the country's business.....we really need to be watching our backs and piggy banks. Most of us are too busy just living and can give a rat's arse about what politicians do...and the actors in Washington take advantage of it slowly turning up the heat of the water.

People will just be people and change will occur when the pain of maintaining the status quo is greater than the pain of changing....never take away the pain! Our government has been buying votes and taking away the pain of their crappy decisions by virtue of printing money, running up huge deficits and rolling out various social programs designed to hide the true state of affairs. Our two party system and institutional corruption has put us in a place where the normal checks and balances no longer work...not sure where we go from here but I hope Americans start looking for candidates that don't "fit" the stereotype of a common politician. A gross generalization...politicians are not smart, but they are cunning.

The reality cops always get their man....eventually.

This is another of those unenforceable laws which will get 'honest' people in trouble and have no effect on the criminals!!!:mad:
Just remember, the progressives know what is best for 'us'!!:rolleyes:

Their mind set is:
"We are better than you therefore we know what is best for you"!:(

Remember folks, Illinois is the crookedest state in the union. Not only have a couple of governers been tossed into the lockup, but 2 or 3 chicago mayors as well with Blagovidich (or how ever its spelled) being the latest for trying to sell obozo's senate seat. Sooooooooo i guess the king crook comes from the crookedest state also.

Now what really pi$$es me off with any law that potentially affects all of the american public, obamacare, all the proposed "gun control" issues, or any other you can name, If they affect us as American citizens those bills should be brought to a public vote. IF we are smart enough to supposedly put the best politicians in office we should be smart enough to decide whats best for us as a public entity.
