This is terrible. The criminals will know which houses to rob in order to acquire weapons. Of course, this might backfire on them. (sarc)

How else are criminals going to be able to target homes to rob guns from?

I hope the state is providing free access to computers with help using google maps and google earth so that underprivileged criminals aren’t disadvantaged.

And what about access to alarm company databases, and passwords and keycodes? Shouldn’t those all be made public too?

Well, if the intent is to “protect the public”, how about a list of liberty-destroying, arrogant, self-important Communists:

1) Lisa Madigan

“...must release the name of everyone in the state who is authorized to own a gun.”

I submit that would be everyone in the state, except the felons. It would be a considerably shorter list to name everyone who was NOT authorized to own a gun.

Hopefully the Illinois State Police commandant has more than an ounce of sense in his head and will politely refuse this idiot’s “request”.

Who is authorized to own a gun????????????

In the United States?

In Illinois?

What has this country come to?

Remember if Lisa Madigan (or the state police for that matter) know everyone who has a firearm, they can come get them at any time. As a free man, I could not live in such a police state.

“Illinois Wants to Release Names of All Gun Owners”

Wrong.

It should say “Illinois Wants to Release Names of All Legal, Honest Gun Owners, while leaving criminals alone”

Why do liberals want to out lawful gun owners but they never want to out felons this way?

(I already know, just making the observation thru the question.)

According to the Constitution, that would be everyone...

Of course, you are correct. The “plain reading” of the constitution “authorizes” the people to keep and bear arms.

That is, unless we all missed the “between the line reading” of the constitution that says: “...the right of the people [who are authorized by the government] to keep and bear arms”.

Sounds like she's got her own personal little "gunwalker" project going on.

Or, if they spot a likely home to burgle, when to go in "hot."

What is her home address? Where is her office? What phone numbers does she use? What are the names of her family members? What is the schedule of her security officers?

The people have a right to know.

“What is her home address? Where is her office? What phone numbers does she use? What are the names of her family members? What is the schedule of her security officers?
The people have a right to know.”

The principle of “wikileaks” works both ways.

Better yet sell the non gun owner list for $100. Illionis is in the red the state needs the money.

Criminals can get their fee back 10X over from the first house they rob.

After that it is all profit with the soft targets on the list.

This should be the number one reason for all citizens of our country to carry without restriction by government.
Give them an inch and here comes a mile of perversion.

How about a list of non-citizens, car owners, home owners, those who buy alcohol and tobacco products, Walmart shoppers. Truthers, Birthers and those with impure thoughts. (like the Catholic kind)
How about lists of political persuasion?

How about a list of government workers by title and department?

Those who are prescribed anything for mental health.
Those who had state paid abortions?

It’s a public tar and feather campaign.

The craving for control by government seems endless.
Defund them.

Tough day so I just vented.

Where can I get one of those signs?

"But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: for men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away, for his name is Obama."

I have this sign on my front door...

If you do, for your own safety, please take it down immediately!

In any gun fight, there are two battles. The first is the gun fight itself. It appears that you are prepared to win that one. If you have that sign posted, you are woefully unprepared to win the second battle, which will take place in a courtroom, and/or in the news media.

Imagine yourself sitting next to your defense attorney--to whom you have forked over your entire life savings, as well as the money your got for taking out a second mortgage on your house--as the prosecutor shows pictures of that sign to the jury and tells them how you murdered "that poor sixteen-year-old boy in cold blood"--never mind that he was six feet tall, 240 pounds, already had two kids by two different mothers, and was threatening you with a knife.

And if your attorney is good enough and does manage to get you off, you will then have to face a civil suit by the "boy's" family. By now your funds will have been exhausted, and your new attorney will want a retainer, so your parents will have to take out a mortgage on their house.

You've done the necessary preparation to win the first battle. Prepare to win the second one also. Start by taking down that sign! Then read up on what to do after the gun fight, too.

Start of a trend to Target opponents with the politics of personal destruction?

For instance, “Melody,” a 1st grade teacher, had this to say about ‘where’s the money in this country’:

“Well, isn’t it in the top 1.5% of people? I think they should start telling us those people’s addresses!”

Quinn has yet to fill the open position of IL State Police Director. Most likely he will pick an anti-gun Democrat police officer.

State Senate OKs one appointment, ignores another
Wed, 03/02/2011 - 8:00am | Tom Kacich Contact Author

SPRINGFIELD – The Illinois Senate on Tuesday confirmed the appointment of the former director of the Illinois State Police as head of the Illinois Emergency Management Agency.

But the controversial nomination of a former state representative to serve on the prisoner review board remained stuck in a Senate committee.

Jonathon Monken, who after nearly two years in the job was never approved as head of the state police, had his nomination as chief of the emergency management agency OK’d by the Senate, 52-1.

There had been stiff opposition to Gov. Pat Quinn’s nomination of Monken to head the state police because the West Point graduate and Army veteran had no police experience
