    There is a difference between real Democrats and the Socialists posing as Democrats.

    I couldn't agree more! The most visible and vocal arm of the Democrat party is thinly veiled Socialism. There are a bunch of real Democrats that are "for the people". Many if not most of these Democrats are from rural areas.

    Amen to that! Most Democrats today do not realize in general the Democratic party as it stands is not the true Democratic Party that our grandfathers belonged to. They are Progressive Socialists. And I believe with intent to destroy our Democracy and focus on a socialist country. That is why today I am a hard core independant and will vote for the person who stands up as a true American way and our freedom without giving the farm away for free. And also our Second Amendment Rights. God bless state representative Beiser. At least on Dem in Illinois has some B--ls!

    Freddy,

    I hate to say! But you are probably absolutely correct. In my opinion with the corruption of Chicago which ran over into the Whitehouse (The whole staff is attorneys) it most likely won't. I have been involved with the weapons manufacturing business in Illinois for a long time. Not to mention aging myself in Chicago with the Military during the 1968 Democratic Convention riots. But reference the weapons business. Springfield, Rock River Arms, Less Bear, Armalite, DSA and all of the weapons manufacturers who unfortunately are located in the Peoples Socialist Republic of Illinois have to be diligent. *In Chicago the progressive socialist rule not the rural Illinois citizens who are great folks and real Americans! Of course now they have maintained Chicago's corruption and also moved their agenda to the Whitehouse. Anyway, the companies had to got to Springfield, Illinois the Capital as a group at least twice or three times per year with all the corporate attorneys to defend the right to sell any AR or similar weapon in Illinois and to produce weapons. Costing the companies thousands and thousands of dollars every year to defend against the constant anti gun attacks. Finally Less Bear just moved across the state line into Iowa~ Moral of the story to get anything done up there will be like Moses parting the water. But when the government develops the giveaway programs like up there and other places in the us. How do you think they are going to vote! Not against their free ride for sure! Why do you think the are pushing this amnesty program so hard. More free rides (Socialism) and more votes to keep the food free food stamps, housing, medical and utilities!!! It is one thing to help people but another to establish a socialist agenda to control people and our vote! Sorry for the soap box approach but as stated unfortunately you are in all probability correct.
    As you can tell like many others here on the FTF. I am one pis___d off American! And hopefully Americans will wake up before it is too late!

    Interesting interview.........

    Here is a podcast of an interview on the radio station I listen to. Paul Green is a political scientist professor and he is very anti-gun. Greg Jarrett is the radio personality who puts up an excellent argument for conceal carry. Paul Green shows his ignorance on the subject and definitely doesn't have his facts together.

    I can't que this up for you exactly but the subject of conceal carry starts a little more than the halfway point. Please take the time to listen and see what a fool Paul Green makes of himself and how well informed the radio personality is.

    Professor Paul Green. - WGN Radio

    I was reading in the paper today (Bradenton Herald, page 2) that your Governor, Pat Quinn, stated on Tuesday, he is opposed to concealed carry legislation, and will veto the bill if it passes. He said, "allowing private citizens to carry loaded weapons is dangerous and would be detrimental to public safety".

    I'd like for him to show the statistics and proof on that one.

    ^^^oops didnt see that last post Car54

    i'm pretty sure Quinn went on record yesterday and today saying he would veto it citing how "unsafe it would make illinois due to road rage for example......" in his typical clueless mumbling manner...

    it took a simple majority to pass it in the house, and i think they need 3/5 to over ride the veto.

    we'll see.

    I don't know how the politicos can keep saying that it's dangerous. Can't they see the statistics in all the other states that have conceal carry? The facts are right there!!

    They don't care about what works, it has nothing to do with lowering crime whatsoever. It's about control, it's always about control.

    I'm not ready to conceal carry yet but if this passes I am going to try to qualify for a CC permit. I just want it.
