So, it's bad enough some out of touch Judges feel they know better than the people of Illinois and Chicago. Now the Republicans, in direct opposition to the health and safety of their constituents, have voted to put guns in the hands of Terrorists:
Republicans on the House Judiciary panel shot down a proposal Thursday to prevent weapon sales to suspected terrorists.The Gun Rights of Terrorists and Criminals are more important to Republicans than the safety of regular Americans. Republicans are scum.
In a party-line vote of 21-11, the committee Republicans killed an amendment from Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.) that would have blocked firearm purchases by those on the FBI's terrorist watch list.
But, it would be bad enough that Republicans are helping Terrorists they also want those Terrorists carry their weapons of mass destruction concealed.
Illinois House Bill 148 the concealed-carry bill, failed to clear the House last week, as it needed 71 votes but only garnered 65. State Representative Daniel Biss (Democrat of Evanston), who voted against the bill, put the sights squarely on the NRA Gun crazies, "By definition, the easier it is to carry guns, the more opportunities people will have to shoot each other." But, the bill is far from finished and could be back up for consideration by May 20th.
What exactly are Republicans doing? Obviously, Illinois Republicans hate police officers and law abiding citizens. Because the voting record of Illinois Republicans is designed to ensure some Copper in Illinois is going to come upon a most wanted Terrorist who will produce a hidden firearm to gun down that officer.
But, the Republicans and Gun Crazies are hoping enough deluded citizens will fantasize that they are Charles Bronson in Death Wish and will gun down the bad guy, when the more likely scenario is the nervous and confused person is going to unload 12 rounds and not only not hit the perp but mow down some innocent bystander in the process.
The arrogant Gun Crazies are banking on the fact that most people don't understand the Constitution. The Second Amendment begins, A well regulated Militia, but Republicans hate the Constitution and hate public servants and hate regular Americans.
Republicans and Gun Nuts would rather see Terrorists waltzing around with multiple concealed firearms on their person and frontier style gun battles waged daily than protect their voters and uphold State and Federal Law.
