MANIFESTING SINCE FEBRUARY 27 AT 1:38 P.M.
Of course, to support their argument, they trotted the usual concealed-weapon theory.
Let’s do the math.
I have a concealed weapon, but of course the law says I have to leave it in my car. Johnny Deranged comes in and starts blasting away, and kills two. He’s going for more, but I get back in time to stop him.
Fug it, I’ve never been good at math. Let’s ask the presidential candidates.
Barack Obama spoke since he was a former constitutional law professor at University of Chicago. I didn’t find anything from Billary or Huck-a-gee (I think I can win), and John McCain, dodged this one quietly. Any questions from the press, and his conservative detractors about his purported pro-gun control agenda, may have outshone his East Coast victories.
Since he has been in Congress, McCain has voted yes on key issues concerning gun control, yet he maintains he is not pro-gun control. Dr. John Lott , former University of Chicago professor and author of More Guns, Less Crimes, writes McCain “has support central positions of gun control agenda” even in some case authoring the proposed legislation.
Surprisingly, not one of the blogs and websites I read had one strong, Democratic or Republican, opinion involving the candidates.
I guess crazy doesn’t need a political party.
I did find online petitions to allow concealed weapons, a state bill (IL HB1304 ), and how many counties are passing resolutions for concealed weapon rights (69). When the House reconvenes on Feb 20th, I wonder what representatives Jim Durkin, and in particular Aaron Schock , (R-92nd district and co-sponsor of HB1304) will have to say.
