Breaking News!: Gun Ban Off the Table. For Now.

Illinois Senate lame-duck session danger is largely over... Read it here at Quad-City Times:
In a setback for gun-control advocates in the wake of the killings of school children in Connecticut, the Illinois Senate was poised to adjourn Thursday without voting on two pieces of legislation aimed at limiting access to certain kinds of weapons and bullets.
Although the two proposals could emerge again when the legislature reconvenes next week, the lack of action shows the General Assembly remains divided on how to balance Second Amendment issues.
"Molon Labe", Bitches! 20 Proposed Felonies!
Good... Apparently the vote was 2 short! So close!

Thoughts and best wishes go out to our friends in the "Empire State" dealing with the same bad legislation... Soon we'll all be dealing with Carolyn McCarthy's misguided "magazines ban bill".

While I try to keep WIILSHOOT out of politics as much as possible, I think it is important for folks to get involved the right way: get to know your reps, senators, city & county officials, etc.

Democracy truly favors those who bother to show up!

I leave you with a quote from Ronald Reagan:
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.
