While at the same time the IL legislature is voting to increase the rights of one group (gay marriage which I support), they are also voting to try and create countless more criminals by making a 'mandatory minimum' sentencing for not having a FOID/CCW card (SB 1342). Problem is, the FOID card system is so broken most people don't get their cards renewed w/i a 6 month period because of delays. The CCW law is so convoluted that walking one foot in the wrong direction could them make you an instant felon.
If you think I'm being paranoid, SA Alvarez has openly stated she believes no-one should own a gun. Think her office will be fair and unbiased when it comes to prosecution? Instead of catching and locking up real criminals, instead the courts will be filled w/ those who didn't see the 'No Guns' sign at their bank or who forgot their license at home.
That's 'Justice'.It's pretty sad when you can forecast just how (not if but when) a law will be abused the the authorities.
