approved by Illinois lawmakers

Original Article

A bill passed on Wednesday by the Illinois House would require gun owners to be fingerprinted and pay more for identification cards. The state Senate still must approve the bill before it could be signed into law. Democratic Rep. Kathleen Willis of Addison, citing deficiencies in the state's current Firearm Owner's Identification system, said the bill comes in response to a shooting at a factory in Aurora where six people, including the gunman, were killed, according to The Associated Press.

Bad idea- this will make law abiding citizens go out of state to purchase gun.. no law abridging right to own gun. A finger print scan in data base is a very bad idea.. and, I am sure all the South Side Chicago gun carrying individuals will comply- (s)

If you still live in Illinois, you’d be wise to rent a U-Haul and get the heck out of there while you can.

FTA A convicted felon, Martin never should have obtained the FOID card he used to purchase a .40-caliber Smith & Wesson handgun So? Fingerprints or not, the state issued him an FOID card. They screwed up here. Too bad you didn't get the higher $20 fee when he received it.

Interntionally lying statistic quoted at the end of the article. In order to inflate the "deaths by gunfire" whenever they are talking about crime, the anti-gun folks routinely include suicides as part of their "gun violence". This is absolutely dishonest, but everything about the anti-gunners is dishonest, always.

Poll taxes for voting were struck down as unconstitutional long ago, yet somehow it is OK to charge someone for the FOID card just to exercise a clearly stated 2nd amendment right?

I guess that if you are a gang-banger and going to shoot someone with your legal, registered and fingerprinted firearm in Illinois, and want to get away with it, you should be sure to wear rubber gloves when loading your magazines or otherwise handling your ammo, to prevent being identified by fingerprints on the ejected cases. Either that or take the time to gather your brass before leaving the scene, or use a revolver and not do a reload on the scene.

The FOID card in itself is an invasion of privacy but I doubt that requiring fingerprints is unconstitutional. In Indiana, fingerprints are required for a concealed carry permit.

In Texas you are fingerprinted if you apply for a concealed handgun license but not to purchase any handgun or rifle. Glad I don't live in Illinois. Next up will be a requirement for a million dollar insurance policy for all gun owners!

#3, I've been advocating for fingerprint technology for voting for years. It could be searched across state lines, and ensure only 1 vote per person, only those legally eligible would be able to vote, and makes it difficult to vote the dead too.

Trump: American Shogun 16 replies

Japan has a new emperor, and so do we. Donald Trump isn’t merely president. He wants to be America’s shogun. Already Trump has repeatedly made his contempt for his Cabinet officials and staffers plain as he routinely forces them to line up and sing his praises. Now, in an episode that is more redolent of H.M.S. Pinafore than Top Gun, TVSG, or The Very Stable Genius, is enmeshed in an embarrassing brouhaha over the USS John S. McCain, which was inconveniently parked off the shores of Japan, where Trump might see it. Klaxons apparently started sounding in the White House over Trump’s Memorial Day visit to Japan.

Markets thrive on competition. Unfortunately, this doesn’t just apply to real economic markets. It also applies to markets for bad ideas and political pandering. With approximately 200 Democrats now running for president (we lost count a few weeks ago), the bidding to bribe Iowa caucusgoers is becoming intense. This is unfortunate not just because it is unseemly but also because the offers are coming at the expense of the nation’s well-being and the environment’s health. The worst pander so far comes from Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn. When she is not privately belittling her staff in ALL CAPS 4 a.m. emails, Klobuchar is attempting to gain

The very first and purportedly only press conference by special counsel Robert Mueller had the feeling of a Mount Sinai moment for Washington this week. Indeed, his message seemed to be the same as that of Moses, which is have faith and do not question. Mueller spoke some 1,200 words before virtually admonishing the press corps that “I hope and expect this to be the only time that I will speak to you in this manner.” After refusing to answer questions, he went back to the place from whence he came. Last week, I wrote that it has become sacrilegious to question the motives or performance of Mueller. His press conference

Kim Hyok Chol was executed in March at Mirim Airport in Pyongyang, along with four foreign ministry executives after they were all charged with spying for the United States, the Chosun Ilbo reported, citing an unidentified source with knowledge of the situation.

Ever notice how, in the last decade or so, we quietly stopped just having storms and started having “extreme weather events”? It feels like no temperature drop or seasonal downpour is too small for the media to slap a scary name on it and issue minute-by-minute warnings. Well, now some news outlets and campaigners are trying to do the exact same thing for climate change itself. “Global warming” isn’t scary enough to push through the expensive bills campaigners want. Instead of “climate change,” The Guardian has now decided to call it “climate emergency.” And the British newspaper isn’t alone: Democratic presidential candidates including Beto O’Rourke and Kamala Harris use similar language,

On Sunday, May 19, New York Times finance editor David Enrich got a request from a producer at MSNBC to appear on Rachel Maddow’s show the following night. Enrich had a red-hot front-page story for Monday’s paper, about anti-money-laundering specialists at Deutsche Bank flagging suspicious transactions involving Donald Trump and Jared Kushner, and Maddow wanted to bring him on air to talk about it. Maddow is MSNBC’s ratings queen, jostling with Sean Hannity every night for the crown of most-watched time slot in cable news.

After a historic 20 rounds, eight competitors were named co-champions of the Scripps National Spelling Bee. Sixteen kids had advanced to the finals Thursday, pared down from 50 competitors after 5 1/2 hours of competition in Oxon Hill, Md. The winners were Rishik Gandhasri, 13; Erin Howard, 14; Saketh Sundar, 13; Shruthika Padhy, 13; Sohum Sukhatankar, 13; Abhijay Kodali, 12; Christopher Serrao, 13 and Rohan Raja, 13. The finalists spelled their way through challenging words, often relying on the Greek and Latin roots and word origins to identify the correct letters, in an effort to win $50,000 in cash and prizes.

Robert Mueller had perhaps his final say on Wednesday but Hillary Clinton apparently had not. Mueller said that he couldn’t prove Trump was innocent. Meanwhile, Hillary, the person who did commit crimes, is demanding accountability. Welcome to Alice in D.C. land. Robert Mueller, the special prosecutor, told us Wednesday that he could not say if Donald Trump committed a crime. When I was in law school, I took a criminal procedure class. If I had said, the prosecutor could not prove that no crime was committed, I would have received an “F."

One way of envisioning the Democratic obsessions with Donald Trump is as an addiction. We have seen the initial impeachment efforts; the attempt to get him under the emoluments clause, the Logan Act and the 25th Amendment; the Russian collusion hoax; the Mueller investigation; the demand for his tax returns; and the psychodramas involving Michael Avenatti, Michael Cohen and Stormy Daniels. Relentless progressives have needed a new Get Trump fix about every two months. More practically, their fixation also substitutes for a collective poverty of ideas. The Democratic Party has no plan to secure the borders other than to be against whatever President Trump is for.

If there were any doubts about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s political intentions, his unprecedented press conference on Wednesday should put them all to rest. As he made abundantly clear during his doddering reading of a prepared statement that repeatedly contradicted itself, Mueller had no interest in the equal application of the rule of law. He gave the game, and his nakedly political intentions, away repeatedly throughout his statement. “It is important that the office’s written work speak for itself,” Mueller said, referring to his office’s 448-page report. Mueller’s report was released to the public by Attorney General William Barr nearly six weeks ago. The entire report, minus limited redactions

Bob Mueller decided to shoot up the town before he rode off into the sunset. It is fair enough to observe that in his short but explosive speech, delivered at the Justice Department Wednesday morning, the special counsel did not say anything that wasn’t already set forth in his report — a point being emphasized by the White House. The sprawling report is 448 pages long, however. In his nine-minute address, Mueller quite consciously highlighted the portions of the report that fuel the Democrats’ calls for impeachment. Mueller was adamant that he did not make a finding on whether President Trump should be charged with obstruction of justice

“Bombshell” best describes David Garrow’s lengthy piece “The Troubling Legacy of Martin Luther King.” The article not only obliterates what we think we know about one of the most beloved figures in American history, it, like a bombshell, hurts people. This includes the many admirers of Martin Luther King but also the various figures, including alleged paramours still alive, named in the article. The manner in which the government assembled the derogatory information on King — gathered with the approval of Democratic officials, including Attorney General Robert Kennedy, all feigning support for the civil rights leader — sickens in a literal sense.

The Clintons plan to build a pipeline of film and television programs that focus on stories about women or are created by women. The yet-to-be-named company is one of a number of business opportunities Hillary Clinton is considering.
