At the same time, SB 1007, the Standard Capacity Magazine Ban by notorious fact fabricator Kotowski, is in danger of being gutted by one of its co-sponsors.
Overall not a bad day in Il.
Thanks to 45Superman on IllinoisCarry for the update.

CHICAGO Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Thursday that he was "deeply disappointed" by a supporter's sermon at his church that mocked Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Think of what kind of cabinet he would to appoint if this is an example of what we can expect. It must all be part of his plan for "change".

I'm sure that's the reason.
I'm sure it had nothing to do w/ statements like"
When Charlton Heston held up a rifle at the NRA convention in Denver Colorado just weeks after the shootings at Columbine High School and shouted, ‘…from my cold, dead hands…’ he was making an idol of the gun.
When our Congressional representatives give the gun industry immunity from prosecution,
when they refuse to regulate guns as consumer products,
when they refuse to enact gun laws such as the AWB that will save thousands of lives,
when Congress does the bidding of the gun lobby in exchange for campaign dollars they are making an idol of the gun.
You know. That whole Ninth Commandment thing.
And this is someone who preaches to us about blasphemy? This is someone who the Brady's are holding up as an example of moral certitude?
I hope they continue.
Update: Ahab shows that the good Rev. is misusing the word to push their agenda so it went down the memory hole yet they appear to be allowing some comments now. Brady Reasoned Discourse in action.
HELP STOP THE APPOINTMENT OF EXTREMIST JUDGES
Our partners at CREDO Action urge you to contact the Senate Judiciary Committee Chair
The United States Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling soon in District of Columbia v. Heller, which promises to be the most significant Second Amendment case in U.S. history. The Heller decision will affect the constitutionality of gun laws for a generation.
As we wait for the decision in the Heller case, our partners at CREDO Action have asked us to forward this alert to you. They are asking you to protect our nation's gun laws by making your voice heard on President Bush's judicial appointees. We hope you read it over, and if you agree with CREDO, take action.
Dear Brady Campaign Member,
George Bush has only nine months left in office; he and his allies are still trying to ram through a set of judicial nominees that could run the courts for the next 50 years.
The Heller case before the Supreme Court is a reminder of the importance of federal judicial nominations to preserving hard-fought legislative victories against the gun lobby. The battle against gun violence is fought in courts as well as in legislatures. We must be vigilant to prevent the appointment of judges who will enforce an extremist reading of the Second Amendment.
So I hope you'll take action today to ensure that Congress will block the appointment of federal judges who are hostile to reasonable gun control laws.
Thank you for working to build a better world.
Will Easton, Activism Manager
Thanks to CREDO Mobile (formerly Working Assets) for taking the lead on this important issue. We hope you consider taking action.
Paul Helmke, President
Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
So remember folks. The Brady Campaign in no way advocates gun bans except to call for various gun bans, smearing legislators who oppose their "reasonable" laws, and lobbying for judges that will support and uphold them. Recognizing the 2A as a right of the people and following the words of the Founding Fathers is considered "extremist".
In one of those little bits of irony, the "parent company" , WorkingAssets, has a group called the Center for Constitutional Rights listed right below the Brady Campaign(under Civil Rights no less), an organization dedicated to restricting rights and upholding racist and discriminatory laws .
Hmm. Perhaps if he had spent less time on the campaign trail and actually doing the job he was elected to and is being paid for* , he might have been able to do just that already.
Maybe it's just me.
*same goes for Billary and Col. Tigh.
Here is a list of legislators that could vote either way and are getting pushed hard by the anti's. Make your calls folks.

1a. Brady does not advocate banning guns...
That's right Doug. You don't advocate banning guns except for "Assault Weapons"(by whatever definition), "Saturday Night Specials", .50 Cals., and whatever firearms are forced to add technology that doesn't exist.
Brady supports the District in the DC gun case because we want to influence the Court's opinion, not because we like DC's handgun ban as policy.
Yep, you want to influence them to allow DC keep the policy of banning handguns and forcing people to keep long arms disabled.
And then he goes on about "Assault Weapons":
3b. A google news search of "ak-47" - pulling a name out of the air - gets about 2,000 hits. A lot of those are foreign stories; filter those out and look at just the the American articles to see how easily those rifles (and AK-type pistols) end up not in the hands of police, military, or specialized target shooters, but in drug users', gangsters', random teenagers'.... Society shouldn't have to pay this price for the privilege of a few civilian AK aficionados. It's not a tough call.
semi-auto assault rifle
soft body armor-piercing ammunition
Guess what Doug. You know the difference between an AK and a semi-auto clone yet you intentionally try to confuse the two. That's called lying.
§ 311. Militia: composition and classes
(a) The militia of the United States consists of all able-bodied males at least 17 years of age and, except as provided in section 313 of title 32, under 45 years of age who are, or who have made a declaration of intention to become, citizens of the United States and of female citizens of the United States who are members of the National Guard.
(b) The classes of the militia are—
(1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
(2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.

1. The systematic propagation of a doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of those advocating such a doctrine or cause.
2. Material disseminated by the advocates or opponents of a doctrine or cause: wartime propaganda.
As George Mason stated " I ask, sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people, except for a few public officials. -- George Mason, 3 Elliot, Debates at 425-426." The militia consists of the entire populace. Not every aspect of that is toting a gun. The women who manned the factories during WWII were acting just as much in the defense of the country as were the men on the front lines.
One area that bloggers have become quite proficient at (as Laura Washington and others have discovered) is disseminating information about our cause and working together to do so. Our goal is not only to counter the misinformation put out by the 'mainstream media' but to educate and interest others in the founding principles of our nation.
In honor to those who work so diligently every day to do so, I put together a unit patch:
The coiled rattlesnake is from the Gadsen Flag, one of the earliest symbols of American independence. It is coiled around a quill pen, symbolizing its protection of our freedom of expression in all its forms. Underneath is the motto "Vltima Ratio Populo". The Final Word of the People. For We The People are the final word.
It is my honor and privilege to work alongside these folks for our cause.
As an aside, the image is available in several HTML formats (thanks to Robb Allen and Linoge) for adding to websites or blogs.
There are also patches available in color, tan, and green subdued, Stickers, Lapel Pins and other UM patches.
Feel free to contact me (thirdpower at hotmail.com ) if you are interested. If, however, your site advocates racist beliefs or illegal activities, it will behoove you to take a bath w/ a toaster beforehand.

Well folks yes the old brain is a little rusty about World War II history, but I believe is was the Russian army that liberated Auschwitz. So let's see Obama's Uncle was in the American/ Russian brigade........Check.....
What a Smuck!!!
In a shocking development, he didn't manage to do it. This electrifying experience is sure to be repeated by other bright bulbs of the criminal community.
First, face up to where the Mexican cartels get their weapons of death. Virtually all, including pistols, grenades, high-powered ammunition and assault weapons such as the AK-47, are smuggled from U.S. territory, across the border into Mexico, where the gangster elements pay premium prices for them.
Yep, I can walk into any gun show or shop in the US, grab a couple AK-47's and a satchel full of grenades, and have them shipped FedEx to Mexico for some quick bucks.
Maybe, just maybe, the "pistols, grenades, high-powered ammunition and assault weapons" are coming from the "notoriously unaccountable, often corrupt, Mexican military and police forces".
But that would make sense, now wouldn't it?
I don't think there's any defence for sports shooters any more," Miller said.
They are also trying to close down two gun clubs. The same type that Anti's like Rebecca Peters (and AHSA in agreement) say we should be forced to keep our firearms stored at.
Consider the 127 people who were murdered in Oakland last year and one similarity leaps out: All but 20 were shot to death.
It's hardly any secret to any of us who live in the city that Oakland is drowning in guns.
String of shootings in New York City leave 8 hurt
NEW YORK - A string of shootings in a New York City neighborhood sent eight people, including half a dozen teenagers, to nearby hospitals with gunshot wounds, police said Tuesday.
Another Bloody Night In Chicago
CHICAGO (CBS) ― The Memorial Day weekend ended with an eruption of violence in the city overnight, after a rash of shootings on the South Side.
How could this be happening in three of the top ten Brady States, I ask you?
So is the the kind of "advanced" social policy we should expect from Obama?
