Illinois Dems advance ban on
most modern firearms

Fox News, by Barnini Chakraborty

Original Article

Posted By:Mr. Know-It-All, 1/3/2013 2:58:03 PM

Illinois Senate Democrats advanced legislation late Wednesday to restrict semiautomatic weapons and high-capacity magazines, pressing forward with new gun control measures in the waning days of the session over the objections of firearms groups. Amid the developments, the Illinois State Rifle Association issued an “urgent alert” to its members warning them that Democratic legislators were trying to push through last-minute anti-gun legislation.

Can´t let a good crisis go to waste, doncha know. This will make Illinois just SO much safer. /sarc

Illinois Dems also want to increase taxes, want to increase the price of gasoline, want to shut-down oil and coal development, want to change America - which means they don´t like it, right?

Chicago had over 500 deaths in 2012 from gun violence, and it has some of the toughest gun laws in the nation.

Mexico does too, and it hasn´t stopped bad guys from having guns there either.

Let´s assume they are able to outlaw guns and survive a leagl challange. Will they included the guns that Obambi and Holder run into the state to support the drug lords in Chciago? Or is that differnt?

It´s the disarming of the populace that creates the real crisis. And that´s when the real wealth redistribution can get going. It´s worked so well in Cuba, North Korea and Detroit, why not try it in Illinois too?

Like other high crime states where the citizens live in fear, Illinois is only semi- American. Intelligent people with common sense should move out and leave the democrats to stew in their own juices.

For a state so far in debt why waste all that money? This must be to help out some constitutional law buddies of the state government. Just think of all the billable hours this will bring...sheesh

I hate Illinois Nazis.

Those of you in Illinois please call and write your State Senator and Representative in opposition to this legislation.

Meanwhile, Mayor Rahm closes mental care centers across the city and lays off Drs and therapists to save a few bucks which leaves patients without a place to for assistance.

Variations of this happen every year....the Chicago gang are particularly upset right now because the 7th Circuit is forcing the Legislature to write a CCW law to forestall IL going to Vermont carry. They hijacked a couple of bills and moved them out of a committee they control totally...actually getting this passed by the Senate is going to be a lot harder.

Oh, I´ve done so, believe me.

Dunno what planet these people live on. Because the South and West Sides of Chicago are rife with thugs and gangs, the rest of the state should be disarmed?

In Colorado, efforts to recall a third anti-gun politician ended this morning with the news that Senator Evie Hudak, who represents the communities of Arvada and Westminster, will resign. Hudak apparently decided that the election, which if lost could have flipped control of the state’s senate, was not worth the risk.

RALEIGH, N.C. – After a year and a half behind barbed wire as a prisoner in World War II, 2nd Lt. David C. Cox had just about reached his breaking point. Deliveries of Red Cross parcels to Stalag VII-A had all but ceased, and the U.S. Army bomber co-pilot and his fellow POWs were subsisting on scanty rations of bug-infested soup and bread. Outside the wire, Adolf Hitler´s forces showed no signs of giving up.

Gov. John Hickenlooper signed bills Wednesday that place new restrictions on firearms and signaled a change for Democrats who traditionally shied away from gun control debate in Colorado - a state with a moderate streak and pioneer tradition of gun ownership and self-reliance. Hickenlooper´s signature of the bills comes exactly eight months after dozens of people were shot in a movie theater in suburban Denver, and on the same day as the executive director of the state´s Corrections Department was shot and killed at his home.

My favorite memory of Ed Koch is a moment from one of the Democratic presidential primaries of the Eighties. He was in his hey-day: mayor of New York, omnipresent media yak-in-the-box, grand rebbe whose hand had to be kissed by any presidential candidate hoping to score with Jewish voters not only in NYC but Florida as well.

'Cooling Out’ the Voters

Confidence men know that their victim — “the mark” — is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone. So part of the confidence racket is creating a period of uncertainty during which the victim is not yet sure of what is happening. This delaying process has been called “cooling out the mark.” The same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton first surfaced, he flatly denied them all.

This has been a presidential election that should be held up as a cautionary lesson for the future. The lesson? How low American politics can stoop, and how to avoid it ever happening again. The 2012 presidential race is fraught with confusion and failed expectations, so much so that it is surprising that any reasonable voter would feel comfortable pressing the button for either President Barack Obama or Gov. Mitt Romney.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud. The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa´s panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her

Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes. The $12 billion federal student lunch program, which serves 30.7 million kids, is losing participants fast — more than a million just last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.
