Repeat Gun Offender Law

  • Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and Democrats orchestrated a brief reprieve from their fighting Friday as they touted a new law to crack down on repeat gun offenders.

    Rauner inked his approval to the legislation at a hastily arranged signing ceremony in his Capitol office, a day after his staff accused Democrats of holding onto the bill in order to deny the governor a chance to celebrate the political accomplishment.

    The governor called lawmakers to Springfield for a 10-day special session, during which Democrats have cast the governor as unwilling to negotiate and incapable of completing a political deal.

    The new gun law was long sought by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, whose relationship with the governor also has been strained. Emanuel and Chicago Police Department Superintendent Eddie Johnson pushed the measure as a way to help reduce crime in the city.

    The legislation changes gun sentencing laws so that instead of a range of three to 14 years for some repeat gun crimes, judges would hand out sentences of seven to 14 years. If they want to depart from that guideline, they will have to explain why.
So will Foxxx's people be allowed to ask for the maximums? And will judges actually assign the maximums? We highly doubt it.

Don't Worry,

The gun charges will be dropped by the prosecutor to make sure the poor innocent underprivileged yutes do not suffer from excessive incarceration.

How many were convicted and sentenced to even three years under the old law?

Will anyone be convicted and sentenced under this law? Or will the states attorney just throw out hte charges during review?

Totally pointless. Democratic Judges find Defendants not guilty when they are restricted by mandatory sentencing guidelines. Not to mention they don't believe in our testimony and think we are liars. Democratic judges are afraid to find anyone guilty if they have to actually dish out a real sentence. Then 4yr olds end up catching bullets from shitbags that these judges let go. It's a disgrace.

In re: the new tax on "sugary" drinks, remember that those on SNAP don't have to pay it. Yeah, the ones most in need of better eating habits.

You can bet this new sentencing is somehow going to be used in a racial way as a quota of sorts. In Kimmy's world the spirit of the law means nothing.

Does this mean criminals utilizing single shot weapons will have immunity from prosecution? How about criminals that use a different firearm for each offense? Since the obvious intent of the legislation is to punish repeat offenses that are commited by the same gun-

* WHAM! SCC gently thumps poster's forehead with a concrete sleeved Louisville Slugger.*

Thanks . . . I needed that!

Meaningless. The SA will use it as an excuse not to charge, and judges as an excuse not to convict. Disparate impact, you see.

What use is a new law when you have prosecutors that won't prosecute and judges that won't sentence? They're just pissing in the wind.
Now lets have a shit for brains journalist tell us how much safer the city will be!

How about passing a law that says "No city or county in this state shall be a sanctuary for criminals or illegal aliens.". Illegal aliens will be turned over to federal authorities for extradition and criminals will be prosecuted.
Prosecutors and judges refusing to do their jobs shall be charged with a class a felony. Breaking public trust deserves a harsh punishment.

>>> 'The legislation changes gun sentencing laws so that instead of a range of three to 14 years for some repeat gun crimes, judges would hand out sentences of seven to 14 years'. <<<

Sounds good so far.
However, as Ron Popeil used to say; But wait...there's more.........

>>> 'The bill also expands probation eligibility for first-time drug offenders, gives the state Department of Corrections more discretion in awarding sentencing credit...' <<<

Given the track record of those assholes -- it seems like every jagoff caught for a violent crime / shooting / murder is out on Probation or got out of prison early thanks to 'credits' -- the last thing society needs is giving them even more leeway when it comes to keeping the shitbirds behind bars.

And naturally we have the usual suspects chiming in: .....
>>> 'The bill had critics, though. Among them were some African-American lawmakers, who ... say the proposal would lead to a spike in arrests of African-American and Latino men'. <<<

Yeah, okay, Laws are 'Racist', right *lawmakers*.
Well here's a free tip for you and your peeps: If they don't go around shooting people (and folk), not only WON'T there be a 'spike in arrests', but they won't be arrested in the first place.

Honest Injun Mr Lawmakers, that's true. There's even a 'study' on it. The study found that people who don't break the law don't get arrested.

Special Ed needs the law as his sick'aness elixir.
However, Democrats will use the new law to promote their Community Anti--Police rhetoric by insisting it's only going to put more black & browns folks in jail and further hamper all the community trust initiatives put in place by Jugghead.
Another unenforceable law and political diversion.
Then there's the repeat offender of very other offense w/o a gun.
Somewhere lost and unrecoverable is Law and Order.
There is always be a Feral Chicago & RahmKids community exemption.

Stay Fetal - don't bother calling an ASA.

We don't need more laws, we just need to enforce what we have on the books already. cf. Project Exile, Richmond, VA circa 1990. Criminals essentially started disarming themselves because they didn't want to cuff up with the Feds for 10+ years far from home.

Maximums? Are you kidding? As for deviating from the guidelines, they are talking about deviating LOWER, which will be every plea deal made.

This legislation will lead to MORE pleas, which is of course is the POINT of this crap.

Don't really care if more black and brown boys go to jail, or even white boys. Repeat offenders belong and deserve lengthy jail time. But I'll believe it when I seez it.

Another fucking joke of a wet dream. Instituting mandatory sentencing only means that the judges in Crook County will be "forced" into finding defendants "not guilty", because no Cook County judge will be dictated by the legislature as to how they will sentence people. Many DUI and res. burglary cases highlight this well-known fact, but the media just hasn't been listening.
