Illinois Assault Weapons Ban

Looks like it’s a no go:

The head of the Illinois Senate said Monday that lawmakers are unlikely to approve an assault weapons ban — one of Gov. Rod Blagojevich’s priorities — this spring.

“I don’t think anything will happen with that (this year),” said Senate President Emil Jones Jr., D-Chicago. He said the measure would be “very difficult to pass” through his chamber.

And it’s still amusing to watch the press peddle this lie:

The federal ban on manufacturing and importing certain military-style weapons expired in September 2004. Since Congress did not reinstate it, each state must decide whether to impose its own ban.

Wrong. It was a limit on the number of aesthetic features which weapons that look like military-style weapons could have.

    As with the expired federal ban on semi-auto that look like military weapons, it only applied to the citizens, not to the government. If such a ban is passed in Illinois, I’m sure the state government will exempt itself and its agents. Hey, I thought we had “equal protection of the laws”.

    IF gun control is such a good idea for the people, then why isn’t it a good idea for the government?? Oh yes! They intend to keep for themselves what they want to deny and take away from us.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
