If you can't walk...

If you've been wondering how Bonnie of Squeaky Wheel has been going well...

Life isn't fair.   And on the balance that's a good thing because Bonnie has done nothing to deserve what's been happening to her.

That said, we can do more than just bemoan the uncaring universe or demand that some god-state come in and "fix" things.    Jennifer's decided to sweeten the pot for those that want to help Bonnie.

And Erin's cooking up another care package and donations and suggestions would be appreciated too.

ATTN Mass Gunnies.

Insert the joke about things in Massachusetts being too quiet.

Well it's been over half a year, but maybe the antis are hoping to catch the gunnies asleep because this Friday they're going to have a hearing on a bunch of gun control.

Information on where and when it'll be done can be found here.

ATTN Illinois Gunnies. (More Local Gun Bans ahead)

A bunch of towns are going to try to get their gun ban on before State-level Preemption hits.

Check to see if your town is up.  More info and locations here.

Go if you don't have anything urgent,  bring a friend.  These goobers don't give up.

Illinois Shall Issue.

Welp,  it's a bad and stupid law, but it is shall issue and it keeps Chicago from making their own NYC carve out.

And it was nice to see Quinn's petulant whine go down in flames. Though Illinois gunnies aren't out of the woods yet.  They're still trying to screw gun owners in Illinois.

And thus the Overton Window inches more in our direction.

Check the above map to see the changes since 1986.    And note how many of the remaining May Issue states were already May Issue.  Why it's like they were... grandfathered.

That's the next fight, and like we saw with Illinois it's gonna take pressure from the Federal Courts.

Gunnies Helping Gunnies.

Erin has a list of some people that could really use your help.

Go and do what you can,  even if it's only a couple bucks. It really can add up, and if we can't help friends of friends when they need it what's the point?   What goes around comes around... or stops.

And meanwhile the Gov of Illinois is showing imperial tendencies, by basically rewriting laws as he sees fit. All while being a sanctimonious, nannying prick about it.  If you live in Illinois you need to get on the horn with your legislators to ensure this veto gets overridden.  Some say it's DOA.  Hopefully, but stranger things have gotten through.  And it does show the level of contempt these clowns have for us.

It sounds like they aren't even going to consider Quin's  amendatory veto bill, but this is Illinois.

Civil Disobedience

Each of person in that circle is guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor of magazine transfer punishable by $1k and up to a year in jail.

Tell me again how gun control is common sense?  Or will reduce crime?  Or is even enforceable.

But hey,  it's another law the State can selectively enforce to punish it's enemies.

Kinda like this... Obama Admin to Delay implementation of the Health care Mandate until 2015

Yeah... so they unilaterally say they won't enforce part of a law that they defended before the Supreme Court.    Oh gee... look at the calendar.

Update:  For clarity.  The individual mandate will still be enforced.  It's the employer mandate that won't.  That's right  YOU will be punished for not getting insurance,  your employer... doesn't have to offer it.  Hope you like those state exchanges suckers!

Attention Illinois Gunnies: Chicagoland Preemptive Gun Ban Meetings & Amendatory Veto

First up a bunch of towns around Chicago are holding meetings to talk about new gun bans (to get in before the CCW legislation is enacted).

Check out the list here and see if you live in the area and attend if you can.

And speaking of the CCW legislation...   Governor Quinn has announced what he'll do.   He'll take a CCW SHall issue bill and try to turn it into an NYC style May Issue bill complete with a ban on most all pistols, rifles, and shotguns.

The governor is fond of saying “let the will of the people be the law of the land”.  Well, governor, when 85 representatives and forty-some senators vote on a bi-partisan compromise measure, that would seem to be the overwhelming will of the people.
Our prediction:  Quinn’s amendatory veto will be over-ridden, most lickety-split.
We’ll even predict when it will happen:  July 9, 2013 or July 10th at the latest.  The only wildcard, so to speak, is whether or not Senate President Cullerton will call the bill for a vote on the veto.  Three weeks ago, the talk was that Cullerton might be reluctant to call the bill.  Today, there’s talk that even Kwame Raoul might vote for an over-ride.
This governor is incredibly unpopular even among his former allies.  Nobody wants to stand with Quinn on this, aside from his also unpopular Lt. Governor Sheila Simon who is Quinn’s intellectual match.

You're gonna want to contact your legislators to kill this.   Fortunately there needs to be a vote to support the veto.  Unfortunately there would need to be a vote to override it.   Fortunately again, there was enough votes the first time around to override... so call and give pressure so it can happen again.
