Gun Watch ^ | 7 January, 2013 | Dean Weingarten

Posted on 01/06/2013 2:20:04 PM PST by marktwain

Here it the link to a YouTube video showing Chairman Nekritz pulling the "Assault Weapon" ban which would have banned about 60 percent of the guns owned in Illinois:

Video Here

At the end of the video, you can here someone yell "Death to Tyrants", or something pretty close!


TOPICS: Government; History; Politics; Society
KEYWORDS: awb; ban; banglist; guncontrol; il; il2013; illinois; nekritz; obama; secondamendment
I listened to the video. There was considerable applause at the end.

HELL yes !

Having to admit to being born in IL isn't quite as much of an embarrassment tonight (though surely still embarrassing enough).

Good news in Illinois. Glad to see an act of common sense, and thanks for the post.

On a less sincere note, what we’ve been told about Obama issuing the “EO” to outlaw the Second Amendment, TEOTWAWKI arriving and Boehner’s mind being controlled by an Obama drone aren’t true? ;-) [Aw, never mind. WOD musta finally got the most interesting commenters.]

Political speech is so sophisticated these days, you know. Just can’t keep up with it! ;-D

If they can get this done in Illinois we're in good shape.

A big “thank you” to all my Illinois and out-of-state friends who sent emails, made phone calls, and sent faxes. I spent a lot of hours on my PC this weekend.

The system works. No need to resort to violence to get what you want.

The system is not working in Illinois as long as these mad dog killers on the left (peeps who create and demand gun free zones are actually demanding free fire zones, so they are responsible for the deaths) are allowed to run loose in the legislature.

Lol! I guess I'm not the only one sick of all the breathless "sky is falling" posts about somebodies uncles best friends former roommate hearing that Obama plans to issue an Executive Order next Tuesday 1:13PM and then using Madame Cleo and the Psychic friends networks, he's going to find and send the military to pick up every gun in the country before 2:30pm.

Sounded like R. Lee Ermy was there. :)

The shout may have been, Thus Always to Tyrants. The translation of the Latin Sic Semper Tyrannis.

It's the motto of the Commonwealth of Virginia, recommended by George Mason to the Virginia Convention in 1776. Along with James Madison, Mason is called the "Father of the United States Bill of Rights.

It's also what James Wilkes Booth shouted after he shot President Lincoln.

The little pimp (State Rep. Acevedo) who proposed the legislation is a former Chicago cop and State Rep. for the past 15 years who got a gun pointed at him back in 2011 in his Latin gang-banger controlled neighborhood. Why don’t these whack jobs propose legislation that goes after the bad guysmore effectively regarding gun violence (most of it gang and drug deal related) and leave the rest of us alone, since they can’t protect us anyway? That’s way to hard though, go after the law-abiding citizens, afterall, when seconds count, the police are only minutes away....

Yes. You’re not the only one. Here are a few tidbits that we know so far.

The gun control efforts have been pushed by a few constituents, who believe that they’ll somehow hold onto their wealth in our eventually radically shrunken economy (default process, etc.). Maybe there are fears in a few influential constituents, that some sort of armed middle class riots will happen in the near future (possible bond collapse, repudiations of debt, accompanied by more huge layoffs of bureaucrats, shutdowns of government-connected business, and so on). The same kinds of constituents, BTW, also have family members who focus on family issues: issues of other people’s families (feminism, homosexual issues, pathological expectations about how others should raise kids, etc.). ...and environmentalism, strange regards toward animals (animal “rights”) and more.

The recent massacres were carried out by sons of families with big cash flow (upper middle class? whatever) under very strange circumstances. The case of the first one is sealed up tight. Not saying that there is a conspiracy of some kind behind the mass murders, but only that some of the circumstances seem strange.

Meanwhile, there’s an underlying fear in politics, that big labor will return. Return to what? The productive folks are in Asia, south of our border and other places (manufacturing). Well, yes, Obama was elected and reelected to boot the “progressive” Hillary regime in upscale constituents.

IMO, the answer would be to dump many regulations in all levels of government—regulations against small manufacturing shops, owner-builder projects and similar undertakings. But the current crop of political regulators doesn’t want to let it go. We’re morally bankrupt. ...dump anti-family intrusions by social regulators, too.

But here we go, to more poverty. I doubt that we’ll see any vainglorious insurrection, but one thing’s for sure. Where we’re heading so far, technically inclined, hard working people will do relatively well.

Sorry for the hastily written mess, but there it is. Maybe someone can add useful info or put some of the puzzle together.

The phone lines down to Springfield were burning up today, took a long time to get through the constant busy signals!

And yes, someone did yell "DEATH TO TYRANTS" in that video.

You are right, they will never stop attempting to take guns away from law-abiding Americans. That’s why they need to be voted out and replaced with people who understand and respect the Constitution. A long battle continues; as to it’s end and triumph for Americans, is anyone’s guess. Say your prayers, too.
