Re: Illionois new Anti gun laws

Kaney,

No whining going on here, just stating facts. I put in my .02 worth directly: my state senator lives 1/4 mile away & I guarantee you he's aware of who I am & my position on 2nd Ammendment issues.

My state rep lives @ 20 milies away, but I sat with him & a couple of others at last fall's Friends of the NRA Banquet & had a nice talk over dinner. Both are NRA rated A+ !!!

Talking about those issues with many politicians from northern Illinois would almost be a waste of breath....

Keep the Faith!

Kaney,

If by being vocal, you mean persistent [img]images/icons/mad.gif[/img]
, hard-headed [img]images/icons/blush.gif[/img] , & obstinant [img]images/icons/tongue.gif[/img], then I'm already there!!!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Our banquets are usually in October, just enough time to get everyone fired up before the general elections....

My significant other always says ( I'm sure glad there aren't two of you)I guess she's wrong. And you hit it right on the head. Maybe we should hook up sometime, for some serious shooting.

posted 02-23-2003 06:49 AM Profile for Kaney Email Kaney Send New Private Message Edit/Delete Post I live in the occupied state of ILL. All i can say is don't whine about it, Bombard your senators and congressman with letters.It only takes a few minutes of your time,I orient mine around the issue of (We do'nt need any more new laws you just need to enforce what's 0n the books)I guess i'll be finding how big a lying BAS---D Balog. really is , as i kept every reply his office sent me when he was running for office( Gun Control Issues)It's time people quit voting for there social security checks and vote for there CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS


I'm not sure if people are whinning, people are voicing whats happening I would think, buit I tend to aggree with you on some poeple, they whine, and NEVER VOTE.

the Republicans are not after the SSI checks of the elderly, thats liberal media propaganda...

Alot of us so voice our opinion, but the liberal media through the last 30 years has brainwashed MOST people to think guns are for "crooks" "killer" or "white redneck racists", people just seem to say or think "I like guns somewhat, but don't need one" then 10 years later after all the liberal media brainwashing, they tend to believe the liberal way and think

"Hummm, I've never needed a gun yet, why now, and look at all the nice things the liberals are doing for us, My black friend at work, they are ttying to help them out, and help our union!"

the Truth is, the liberals do not want piece, they want the guns taken away so civil unrest skyrockets, so they can say "vote for us, we'll fix it" same for black rights, the Democrats don't want EQUEL rights for everyone, give the blacks EXTRA rights OVER whites, and it will cause more problems, but they make you think they are trying to help, and when matters get worse, they say "Vote for us, we'll fix it!".. a chain reaction, it's helped them for many years


the general public believe the liberals are for them for the poor, you can send a billion letters to your state rep, he doesn't care, he's got HUGE organizations on his side getting him/her the votes...

Try moving to San Fransico, and sending letters to your state rep saying you think "gay rights" is bullcrap..
I don't care how many lettes you would send.. you wouldn't change anything..
Complaining to them is a waste, (THEY ARE SET IN THIER LIBERAL WAYS!) VOTING against them and getting more poeple to vote against them "will work"

The anti gun reps are starting here in Indiana now with a Class A mistamener domestic assault
as grounds to not allow for firearms..

I've never had Domestic Assault, but I know some good people who have on simple groud of a
dope dealing neighbor startinhg a fight with him, and he beat the tar out of him...and was charged...
The problem is the police can charge you with ANYTHING, the liberal judges are on there side.. a Good citizen who defends himself can't own a gun anymore LEGALLY...
if your EXTREAMLY wealthy and can afford a Lawyer or live in a better neighborhhod with less crime, you don't have to worry about those laws...
As you can see this law is another small step in disarming the people, starting with the poor and middle class...

it will get worse.

Re: Illionois new Anti gun laws

Kaney,

I get up that way once or twice a year to shoot near New Windsor, between Galesburg & Rock Island. I met LRH member Tim Courtney up there last year & had a blast.

The range there hosts 1,000 yard matches - the only 1K range in Illinois that I know of. Bad thing is, it's 6+ hours from here & you have to chase cows off the firing line occasionally!

Re: Illionois new Anti gun laws

SPEEDBUMP I've got a 400yd. range a couple of miles from me that's the same way.Rock Island is only about an hour and a half from here , What's the name of that range.I've been going to Lodi Wisc. there in the process of setting up a 1200 yarder, but those guys up there seem to stick there nose in the air to outsiders.DONHAM I agree with you all the way
