A 23-gun Salute for Extortion in Chicago

When not allegedly extorting businesses into retaining the services of his property-law firm, Alderman Burke is an active campaigner for and supporter of gun control. That made one item in the courthouse reporting extremely curious: The FBI found 23 guns in Alderman Burke’s office, and he was ordered to hand them over as part of his bail conditions.

Researchers Credit Right to Carry Law With Reduction in Chicago Property Crimes

...Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel maintained that “gun control is essential,” and that the new concealed carry law would result in an increase in crime.

Recently, two researchers disproved at least some of Emanuel’s prognostications and added to the growing body of evidence that allowing citizens the right to defend themselves with guns outside their homes can lead to a decrease in crime...

Gun-Control Fails in Chicago.. but Do Democrats Care?

...For years Chicago politicians said that guns were the problem and that was why they couldn’t allow concealed carry permits. Oddly enough, the crime rate in Chicago has fallen now that concealed carry came to Illinois. That is consistent with a nationwide report from the American College of Surgeons. The report said concealed carry and permitless carry didn’t increase murder or violent crime. Gun control was a placebo. That political sugarpill let Chicago politicians keep innocent victims disarmed for years. The Chicago voters didn’t care....

INDIANAPOLIS -- A house bill that's been introduced in the state legislature would protect Hoosiers who shoot someone in self defense and cleared of criminal wrongdoing from lengthy civil lawsuits.

State Rep. Jim Lucas (R-Seymour) has introduced HB 1284, which would require a judge to decide early during the pre-trial process to decide whether a civil lawsuit brought on by an individual or family of someone who has died from the result of a shooting where the defendant was found justified in using deadly force.

IL Woman With Concealed Carry License Who Shot Robber Called A ‘Hero’

CHICAGO (CBS)– Residents are praising the 25 year-old woman, with a concealed carry license, who shot and killed a man who was trying to rob her at a bus stop.

Surveillance video shows the woman waiting alone at a bus stop at 103rd and Wallace around 5:45 a.m. Tuesday. Police say a 19-year-old man, in a light colored hoodie, pulled a gun on the woman in an attempt to rob her.

IL Gun enthusiasts back sanctuary

“Chicago and their draconian laws should have nothing to do with Kankakee,” Wheeler said. “When you reach my age, a senior citizen, which is considered elderly, we should be allowed to carry guns and have no restrictions on magazines and bullets.”

Most in the audience applauded.

Chicago: Less blood spilled in 2018, but still a violent year

https://conservativefiringline.com/c...-violent-year/

The Los Angeles Times is reporting that Chicago lowered its body count in 2018, but the city still managed to record more homicides than Los Angeles and New York combined.

The revelation came as Chicago police made the first arrest of the new year for a “gun related crime” only two minutes after midnight. Predictably, the guy they arrested had prior convictions and he was described as an “armed habitual criminal.”

At least the suspect was not the first casualty of 2019. He reportedly fled from a traffic stop and was later sacked while carrying a handgun that turned out to have been stolen.

Rally at Wisconsin Capitol against gun control laws met with counter-protest

https://madison.com/wsj/news/local/r...79d0d4639.html

A few dozen people, some armed with rifles, handguns and extra ammunition, gathered outside the state Capitol Saturday to protest potential gun control measures they fear could come from either newly inaugurated Gov. Tony Evers and his administration or the federal government.

“We have a right to our own things that we want to own as long as I’m not harming anyone,” Chris Hinkley, of Waukesha, said.

As the small group gathered at the top of the Capitol steps facing State Street, the rally was met with counter-protesters who met on the 100 block of State Street and advanced to the lower levels of the steps to shout down the We the People speakers.

Rep. Steve Reick Files Bill to Streamline Renewal Date Procedure for Concealed Carry Permits in Illinois

http://www.repstevenreick.com/2019/0...cmVG27jPqqaqqY

“This issue was brought to my attention by a few constituents who were essentially being penalized by submitting all required renewal documentation early within the 120-day timeframe recommended by the Illinois State Police,” said Reick. “These folks were receiving new cards that expired five years from the date their new information was processed rather than five years from the date their former card was issued. Gun owners who wish to carry are paying for a five-year permit, not a 4 ¾-year permit.”

Gov. J.B. Pritzker signs law requiring state licensing of Illinois gun dealers

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...ers/ar-BBSnJUH

A certification would cost retailers a maximum of $1,500, and the regulations would apply to small businesses as well as big-box retailers. Sellers without a retail location would be charged $300 for certification.

In a statement, Illinois State Rifle Association Executive Director Richard Pearson said “nothing in this bill is going to enhance public safety in Illinois.”

“The only thing that is being accomplished here is the creation of a bureaucratic nightmare for gun dealers,” he said. “Rest assured, we will be challenging this new law in court.”

Gun advocates eye court challenge after Pritzker signs gun dealer licensing bill

https://www.ilnews.org/news/state_po...391dc7aca.html

“They’re all surrounded by people with guns to protect them for their safety but they want to take away the ability for the average person to have an effective means of self-defense,” Vandermyde said. “They want to make it harder for them to get guns. They want to put them at a disadvantage against the criminal element.”
