Migrating TO Illinois

Well, well, well, some people ARE coming back!

 

State passes law, takes money away from entity tasked to enforce law, making criminals of gun owners

Well, here’s a new one. Illinois passed what is called the FOID card registration for gun owners. In short, you must have one of these cards to purchase ammunition or firearms in the state of Illinois. Ok, fine.

The Illinois government gives the job of processing the FOID cards to the Illinois State Police. Ok, fine. They allot money in the budget that goes to the State Police to process and get these cards mailed out to applicants. There is a background check and the like to make sure you are not a jerk. If you are a jerk, you will not be allowed to purchase a gun. I suppose they are weeding out the dangerous sorts. Ok, fine.

Recently, the Illinois state government purloined $30 million from that special fund that the ISP use to support their work of processing the FOID cards, without which you cannot purchase a firearm or ammunition. The ISP also processes the conceal/carry cards for those qualified for that.

Can you see where I’m going here? People are waiting months to get their FOID cards  after they have expired. So does this make them criminals since they don’t have the FOID card, that the ISP can’t process because Illinois took all their money? Is this a back door way of accomplishing what the lefties really want, which is to hinder and frustrate gun owners and get rid of all guns? Yep, folks, that’s what it looks like. Some lame brain in our state government came up with this scam recently, I’d say.

Do not ever assume your government is looking out for you, the little guy. That is over in our country. They are actually looking for ways to: 1. get more money from you to cover their misspending so they don’t have to change; and 2. take your guns from you so you can’t fight back if they get more repressive. We the people have lost our power. BUT, I don’t think it is too late. President Trump being elected gives me hope. Government by the people, for the people and of the people is coming back, you just wait and see.

And how about that newly elected Democrat Virginia assembly? They allocated more money in their budget (from the citizens’ taxes) to cover expected new expenses of jailing law-abiding gun owners in that state when their newly hired enforcement team comes to confiscate the weapons the assembly plans to make illegal. How about that? Take the guns AND make the taxpayers foot the jail bill and the pay for the guys to do it ? That’s just so insulting on so many levels. Can anyone say Boston Tea Party? I guess they think citizens are just going to lay down and take it, otherwise, why would they push on the people like this?

Watch Virginia.

Concerning other matters…

The Horowitz report…it finally came out December 9, 2019 and Mr. Horowitz himself testified on Capitol Hill on December 11.

The House’s “impeachment” of President Donald Trump on two rather vague charges…abuse of power and obstruction of, wait for it, Congress. Speaker Nancy Pelosi decides to hold those charges close to her vest and not send them to the Senate. What is she waiting for? More evidence? Exactly. Charges first, then we find the evidence. Uh-huh.

The Texas church shooter, who killed two at a church service the last weekend of December, but got clipped in the head by armed security team member Jack Wilson (see below)…that didn’t work out well for the shooter. Apparently the guy was upset because the church wouldn’t give him any money. The video of the whole event is on the internet. And now the incessant 24/7 media conversation turns to guns in church…

As an afterthought, or maybe not, how many of you knew John Kerry’s (former Sec. of State in the Obama administration) daughter married an Iranian national and physician, Dr. Brian (Behrooz) Vala Nahid, who has extensive family ties to Iran, according to the Daily Caller. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was also Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations during the Obama administration. Cozy crew, eh? Sort of gives new perspective to the idea of being “in bed” with the Iranians.

Well, anyway, it’s looking like it will be an exciting year.
