Default Violent Crime Down, Gun Sales Up

Maybe Illinois... I mean Chicagoland will get the hint that law abiding citizens carrying firearms for self-protection is a good thing.

Sorry, Edge, it's great news, but extremists will never let

common sense, history, logic, or what is proper get in the

way of their sacred opinion...

To quote the article:

"NSSF estimates the [gun] industry is responsible for

approximately 180,000 jobs, and has an annual impact

on the economy of $28 billion. (Yas, as in BILLION, with a "B"...)

Mr Obama could honestly take credit for this jobs program,

economic boost, and the reduction in violent crime that has followed

the spike in gun ownership on his watch.

Instead, he's silent about his greatest positive accomplishment."



Well, talk about things which make you go "hmmm"...

1. Politicians LOVE high crime because it gives them reasons to spend more of your money, make new laws, and usurp power for the government (even if it's a local government).

2. Politicians LOVE gun control laws because it results in higher crime and it decreases the danger posed to themselves when and if the populace ever wakes the hell up.

Don't hold your breath. Liberals aren't inclined to let reality or logic intrude on their political positions.

I have a good feeling about it this time. CCW is in legislation in ILL right and with the way politics have been handled in Illinois as of late we have grown tired of the Democrats rule. I know a lot of people that will be voting Republican this election, myself included.

The real issue lies with Chicago!
