The NRA Reads SCC

NRA Lobbyist Todd Vandermyde has actually read us for years and we corresponded often during the run-up to the McDonald decision.

Today was a large posting day and if you're only skimming the top posts, you might miss the YouTube video of the Illinois House Judiciary Committee hearing on Gun Legislation.  As we stated before, it's over 3.5 hours long, but the best portion of the video is Mr. Vandermyde's broadsides at McPanderer, comparing him to Bull Connor and a brilliant "streetlights" reference.

See the full post here.

He also has an update on the railroaded suburban gun owner:
  • Thank you for the words of support, I humbly appreciate all that you guys do and the support you give me.

    I know the guy that got popped in 16. Joe has retained the SAF lawyer who was lead on Moore. I don't know if Gura is coming in on the case yet or not.

    The big fight on right to carry is looking to take place Tuesday. We'll see how it goes.

    I have to testify again on Thursday at the committee about their ideas of a semi-auto ban/mag ban. So if Mr. Drury wants to go for round 2, I'm game. We'll find out if he knows which end of the gun the bullet comes out of, but I doubt it.

    I already asked to bring a bunch of guns in and the committee staff are shitting them selves.

    And btw, SCC is daily reading for me on my ipad when at the capitol. reminds me there is a real world out there when the city lobsters come around.

    BTW did you guys see the bill Phelps dropped on CPD/FD pensions and a chicago casino? 20% of the city's take has to go to the pension funds. Amazing what some conversation over a few beers can do. . . .
One word for the Corp Counsel - Settle.  You're going to lose badly with this one.  Return the guns, pay the fees, negotiate some damages and agree to retrain the involved parties. Otherwise, someone is going to be posing with another one of those giant novelty checks with Rahm's signature on it.

I was actually very disappointed in Representative Scott Drury's grilling of Mr. Vandermyde on the topic of the veracity of the FOID system.

It's not up to the NRA, Mr. Vandermyde nor the Illinois legislature to wait until the FOID system is fixed; the circuit court gave a 09 JUN deadline for the Illinois CCW law to be crafted.

Alderman Osterman said in so many words, that the instant background checks are working. Unless the FOID process becomes the mechanism to CCW, it's superfluous.

If Governor Quinn continues to fail to fund the FOID system to handle the volume, the failure of that system falls squarely on his shoulders.

The black community should be outraged and embarrassed. I am Hispanic and I am outraged and embarrassed when my people act like fools. They all need ass kicking, like back in the day! If I acted like this, I would get my ass handed by my parents! If they weren't there the police would hand me my ass and then my parents at home! And they wouldn't file a lawsuit, they would thank the police for straightening me out!!! The rule growing up was, if you run or
disrespect authority, there were consequences for your actions! There simply isn't any with certain youth groups, especially the African American and Hispanic youths
In Chicago. There are plenty of whites too. But the majority that's causing trouble, crime, and chaos are blacks!!!! WHAT THE FUCK media call it like it is! I am not a RACIST! They are ruining things for the Black community! I have three small children and I guarantee if I'm up north at a mall with them, I will be armed when conceal and carry takes place!
Its not safe for my toddlers at old or orchard where I grew up going to on a weekly basis. I was never afraid, now I see mobs of black kids there and it makes me nervous to be around them! I'm sorry to say this but I guarantee most of the other shoppers there are too. I observe the look of intimidation on their faces!
I call it like I see it! These kids are ruining for
the entire black race. I fear race riots in the future!

I just love it how when a hispanic p.o. calls out the black community. When his own community is a tad bit better (but let's face it they are not model citizens themselves). Notice I said a tad bit better. For example hispanic females are highest in teenage pregnancy and hispanics are #1 is felony dui's. I'm black and I'll say it like it is; my community is completely fucked up. We have a lot of issues. But Mr. Hispanic Officer pay attention to your own and I'll pay attention to mine.

And thanks to SCC for the link to the lifetime NRA membership for only $300.00.

The problem is that the check with Rahm's name on it also has the lowly property owners.

The property owners can't beat the machine. The machine places 4-6 workers in each precinct for all sorts of fun against the other candidates. The machine places a couple of front candidates to lure votes away from a reformer.

A reformer has to be pro gay, pro illegal aliens, pro gambling, pro abortion for everyone including 12 year olds without parental consent, pro link card, and lastly pro spending like a drunken sailor for the "chldren."

So a reformer ends up having the same positions as the problem Democratic party.

ISRA COMMENDS ARTIST JOE FOURNIER FOR GUN SAFETY CARTOON



The ISRA is commending political cartoonist Joe Fournier for his courage in publishing a cartoon that plainly reveals the true sentiments of so-called “gun safety advocates.” The nationally syndicated cartoon, which appeared Sunday in the “Chicago Tribune,” depicts Vice President Joe Biden gleefully assassinating NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre with a shotgun. “Lawful firearm owners have known for a long time that the gun control movement wants us gone – by any means necessary,” said ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson...
“A few years ago, renegade Chicago priest Mike Pfleger openly called for the ‘snuffing’ of lawful firearm dealers and elected officials who oppose gun control. More recently, we heard Chicago Police Superintendent McCarthy say he would train and instruct his officers to shoot people holding concealed carry permits. Now we have a quarter-page cartoon in a major market newspaper where the Vice President of the United States appears to give the green light to murdering supporters of our 2nd Amendment.

It seems that the anti-gun people want to ban just about every public place for CCW. These are the places that you might need a weapon to protect yourself, namely, malls, grocery stores, public transportation, movie theaters. But, I am strongly for solid training for civilians who want to CCW, not just on how to use the weapon, but on the law and scenarios. Civilians who carry should not think that they are now the police and chase down the bad guys, just defend themselves and anyhone near to them from attack or robbery. But, if you look at the other 49 states with CCW, none of the horrible things that the antigunners are saying will happen have ever happended. Just scare tactics by people who just do not know what they are talking about.Glad we have the ISRA and the NRA

Illinois House Democrats were told during a private caucus meeting in Springfield last week that, despite what Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez says, inaction on concealed carry would have serious consequences.

***

Paul Castiglione, a representative of Alvarez, dropped a bomb during a hearing by the committee that was called to discuss concealed carry when he declared that until the U.S. or Illinois Supreme courts rule, the appellate court decision is “not binding” on the state.

“Only the Illinois Supreme Court can declare a statute from this body to be unconstitutional,” Castiglione told the committee members.

He also took aim at warnings by the National Rifle Association that if no new concealed-carry law is put into place before the deadline, then gun owners would be free to carry assault rifles down Michigan Avenue.

Castiglione insisted that his office would continue to enforce the current law.

“Anyone who decides, for example, to walk down Michigan Avenue in Chicago carrying an AK-15 (sic) would be subject to arrest and prosecution,” he said.

But that’s not how the House Democrats’ legal staff sees the world.

At one point during that closed-door Democratic caucus meeting, Rep. Ken Dunkin (D-Chicago) rose to ask whether the staff was saying that if the Legislature does not pass a concealed-carry law, he could legally carry a loaded semi-automatic rifle into the Statehouse after June 8.

“Yes,” he was told.

A stunned silence fell over the caucus meeting, said several House Democrats who attended.

“I think they finally get it now,” one pro-gun House Democrat said of his colleagues.

Some historically anti-gun members talked after the committee meeting about how they need to vote for a concealed-carry bill. So, Dunkin’s question and the answer given appear to have worked.

At least for now, a lot of House members are not willing to kick this particular can down the road.

Meanwhile, Secretary of State Jesse White’s office says no way will it allow people to walk into the statehouse with a gun, regardless of what legislators do this spring

Went out to beautiful East Dundee in lovely Kane County and bought the rifle of my choice at GAT Guns. The only problem is that the high capacity magazines for this rifle are currently out of stock but hopefully in soon. Nice folks out there and no Preckwinkle tax. Bought the rifle for below MSRP as well.

OT-please read this article. This is very disturbing.Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan told thousands of followers Sunday he was planning to reach out to gang leaders to help "protect" the Nation of Islam. ABC,NBC,CBS & FOX news why aren't you reporting this. Because you are cowards!!!! Here's the link:

How were these po-po trained ? In our academy and by who? They must have been asleep during law class. I agree w/SCC on that last paragraph, rhambo will be signing a nice check for that gentelman.They could also find themselves facing punative problems if the city says they acted out of their authority.This city is becoming a lottery for legit gunowners.

Don't ever give up, Don't ever give in! Thank you for staying the course. It's shameful that ALL Gun owners in IL aren't members of the ISRA and/or NRA. They leave the donations for defense of "Their" gun rights to the few of us who give till it hurts. Feel free to use the following when standing off with the Gun haters in Springfield;
Why does the President of the United States and the Illinois Legislature want to disarm and confiscate semi-automatic weapons from its citizens when at the same time "Arming and Training" CITIZENS of Syria who are standing up to a tyrannical government? Answer that please Mr. President! (or Mike Madigan)

The NRA can easily counter that by showing the youtube mob on the loose at Ford City Mall the other day.

If this is what's wearing that "North Face" stuff today, the fad is o-v-e-r. Wouldn't be caught dead in it, know what I mean?

Nice of them all to come such a long way into town to beat people, though.

"Authorities have charged three women and a 14-year-old girl in connection with a weekend robbery in the Near North neighborhood.

"About 1:10 a.m. Sunday, the four aproached two 21-year-old women in the first block of East Grand Avenue and robbed them, police said.

"The robbery began with Thompson striking one of the women on the rear, pulling her hair and knocking her to the ground...The other victim was jumped and knocked to the ground, with her face smashing into the pavement,

"Erica D. Riley, 18, of the 16700 block of Butterfield Drive in south suburban Country Club Hills, Leah E. Robinson, 22, of the 6900 block of South Oglesby Avenue, and Aliyah L. Thompson, 22, of the 8500 block of South University Avenue and the 14-year-old, police said. All are charged with felony robbery and misdemeanor battery..."

Yes, ban CCW on the CTA, but you also disarm the citizens ( and retired police officers) when they walk to and from the CTA stops where a lot of the attacks occur. I ride the CTA and rarely see the police in the stations, on the trains or on the buses, especially at night when their is danger. And, I would be willing to bet that a large percentage of what is reported as a " theft" on the CTA is =actually a robbery. Shame on these antigun liberals. Lets make them ride the CTA at night and walk to and from the stations and see how they feel. But, you know they dont give a damn, they have bodyguards or cars.

It's Constitutional to transport a loaded weapon anywhere you fucking please, as long as you do not use said weapon to commit a natural criminal act, and, then only the act itself is a crime.

Read the report. There was a lot of info that a patrolman would not have put in a report for this. What I did see was a Lt. Name in the narrative section. Is there a chance that a supervisor may have forced the issue on this case? I would guess that there is more to this case than 2 guys working on their day off hunting for a gun pinch.

Shame on you guys for hoping a fellow officer gets sued. These guys didn't "put" a gun on anyone, if the city charge is flawed...blame the city. I could see if this was the action of bad officers, but bad advice or direction by bosses doesn't warrant the ill-will vented towards these officers. You people are supposed to be on the same side.
