Going into yesterday's hearing we knew we would lose as it is the Exec committee. And we knew the Sandy Hook parents would add an emotional element to it.
What we didn't know was that some republicans were looking to throw us under the bus. We have heard from some that the party needs to moderate in order to be competitive in Illinois. That to some, means going weak on the second amendment issue.Two of those RINO's were Senate Minority Leader Christine Radogno and Sen. Matt Murphy who, from what I've been told, voted for the ban in committee.
No. I don't think so.
