In most cases the fees are DOUBLED.

From what to what? $5 to $10? $100 to $200? One may be reasonable, the other not. And where does the money go? In Illinois the hunting license fees go directly to the Illinois DNR, which has a very good reputation for effective action, political independence and lack of waste among the state's sportsmen.

Can you imagine any storage law that would be a good thing?

I don't know what a storage law is.

I can't, it's none of their buisness.

It's none of whose business? The people you're asking to oppose it?

That Ken Gordon wrote it is all one needs to know.

I don't accept anyone's judgement uncritically, especially someone I've never heard of.

Sorry, been out of town.

From what to what? $5 to $10? $100 to $200? One may be reasonable, the other not. And where does the money go? In Illinois the hunting license fees go directly to the Illinois DNR, which has a very good reputation for effective action, political independence and lack of waste among the state's sportsmen.

For example, resident elk doubles from $30 to $60. DOW has an increasing number of enviros on its board who feel that non-game programs should be just as high a priority as hunting and fishing programs. So I don't assume this funding will be used to benefit sportsmen.

I don't know what a storage law is.

Mandatory storage of firearms. Um, did you happen to read the article?

It's none of whose business?

The government, it's none of their business how I keep my guns.

I don't accept anyone's judgement uncritically, especially someone I've never heard of.

If Gordon wrote the bill, there is no way it is good for gun owners.

That help, or were you pulling my chain?
