How Illinois Gun Laws Failed In Aurora

https://bearingarms.com/tom-k/2019/0...odonsLW0y1UT6s

Yet again, despite a slew of gun laws and a few more under consideration by the state, absolutely nothing stopped this from happening. Yes, the shooter had his FOID revoked, but it seems no one bothered to actually do anything about his gun. At that point, removing his FOID accomplished jack squat, didn’t it?

In wake of Aurora mass shooting, Illinois State Police taking 'first steps' to make it harder to keep guns after licenses revoked

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/in...ked/ar-BBUrvgj

State police also will start providing local law enforcement with a list of firearms purchased by people whose cards were later revoked. This specific reform could rankle gun rights advocates, who have long objected to the government keeping tabs on who is purchasing guns.

“I am not for people going through people’s personal records,” Richard Pearson, executive director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, told the Tribune last week. “You’ve got people who would love to get in there and mess with this. And it’s none of their business.”

ILLINOIS LAWMAKERS CONSIDER BAN ON SANCTUARY RESOLUTIONS UPHOLDING 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS

https://www.illinoisreview.com/illin...nt-rights.html

SPRINGFIELD - The Democrats are upset that a growing number of Illinois counties are challenging their ideas to control guns throughout the state. So much so, they're working on an effort to stop counties from balking state laws they believe limit Second Amendment rights.

Within days of his inauguration, Gov. JB Pritzker pleased his gun control supporters by placing additional restrictions on Illinois gun shops. As a result, several gun shops are reporting to be closing their doors - exactly what the gun control advocates hoped would happen.

Indiana: Senate Committee Passes Important Self-Defense Bill

https://www.ammoland.com/2019/03/ind...-defense-bill/

House Bill 1284, sponsored by Representative Jim Lucas (R-69), would provide immunity for a justified use of force in certain instances to help prevent frivolous lawsuits. Victims of violent crime shouldn’t be subjected to unnecessary civil suits, therefore being victimized twice. This bill would also require a court to award, in certain instances, reasonable attorney's fees if it determines a suit was brought unjustly, helping to prevent financial ruin for individuals protecting themselves and others.

Deerfield Assault Weapons Ban: Judge Blocks Village's Ban

https://patch.com/illinois/deerfield...t-weapons-case

DEERFIELD, IL — The judge presiding over an assault weapons ban lawsuit ruled that the ordinances Deerfield proposed in the ban were unenforceable and ended the case, according to reports. Daniel Easterday, who filed the first lawsuit challenging the proposed 2018 assault weapons ban, told Patch the judge granted a permanent injunction against the Village of Deerfield.

The judge said "The village was not legal in how they passed that ordinance and that it went against" the Illinois Concealed Carry Act, according to Easterday.

Local gun right supporters head to Springfield

http://www.wsiltv.com/story/40200681...iZC1T1MVEh7IsQ

WSIL -- Thousands of gun owners will march to the Capitol on Wednesday for Illinois Gun Lobby Day.

Richard Pearson is the the Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association and is an advocate in Springfield for gun rights.

Pearson said in a one-on-one interview with News 3 Monday night at a town hall in Mt. Vernon, these new gun laws that legislators are trying to pass will make felons out of law-abiding citizens.

He said the only way to make these bills slow down the process from becoming law is for people to be involved in their government.

"We are the most law-abiding citizens in the state of Illinois and we have to put up with the most grief," Pearson said.

Ted Nugent Responds To McHenry County Fair Backlash

https://patch.com/illinois/crystalla...iotism-protest

MCHENRY COUNTY, IL — Rocker Ted Nugent had something to say to those voicing their disapproval over the McHenry County Fair's choice to have the performer as the 2019 headliner. The McHenry County Fair announced Friday that rocker Ted Nugent will headline the 2019 fair festivities on Aug. 3, and it didn't take long for a social media battle to ensue.

As of Wednesday afternoon, more than 1,400 comments can be seen under the Facebook post announcing the highly controversial performer's concert date, ranging from "so excited" to "I won't be attending," with some additional choice words thrown into the mix. Nugent didn't hesitate to share a Northwest Herald article about the backlash to his own Facebook page.

In his Facebook post, Nugent wrote, "Only liars and America hating scumbags have a problem with me. My spirit irritates their demons!"
