Quote of the day—Dan P. Eldridge

Instead of making it difficult for law-abiding gun shop owners, fully prosecute straw purchasers, felons in possession of a firearm and people who unlawfully use a weapon. Incarcerate more criminals, and you’ll get less crime. Make it harder for law-abiding citizens to protect themselves, and you’ll get more crime. Which goal is Sen. Harmon trying to achieve?

The gauzy misdirection and untrue smears of an anti-gun-rights activist
[It’s a rhetorical question but I’ll answer anyway. Senator Harmon, Democrat, has a vested interest in getting votes. As there are over twice as many Democrats in prison as all other political affiliations combined and convicted felons are not allowed to legally vote the senator wants fewer of his constituents sent to prison. Furthermore the more crime the easier it is for the senator to spin the story that he is needed to protect them from the crime. If people realize they can, and should, protect themselves from crime then they will have less, imaginary, need for him. He does not want this.

So, DUH! The senator wants to make it harder for citizen to protect themselves and fewer violent criminals going to prison.—Joe]

  1. Harmon’s a fricking moron. Listen to him debating his bill tells you all you need to know.

    At the same time, straw purchasers are being let off w/ probation or not prosecuted at all by the AG office.

    The whole point of this bill is to shut down as many FFL’s as possible.

    IL residents need to file slips in opposition to this bill: http://illinoiscarry.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=65679

  2. It is as simple as the criminal class protecting their own, and they will instinctively recognize their own. They also recognize their natural enemies; those who love liberty and therefore oppose coercion.

    I refer to it as The Alliance of the Dark Side, but it’s no more complicated than “birds of a feather flock together”. It doesn’t take but a brain the size of a pea to make it work.
