I just emailed the Executive Director of the Illinois State Rifle Association, asking him to put together a history on 2A issues summary on Obama. If he responds, I’ll be sure to post it here.
If you’re a member, you might request the same.
That's a good idea. There have been many completely over the top proposals in Illinois (and Chicago, I may be confusing some in memory) from banning centerfire ammunition (penetrates vests) to banning commonly used "crime ammunition", .22, .28, .25. Many don't make it to a vote, but I'm sure some did during his 8 years in the legislature, and the ISRA keeps pretty good track of legislation.
Worth remembering we got Obama partially because of the national GOP's unwillingness to spend money defending what was a Republican Senate seat. Had they been willing to inject funds, we wouldn't have been limited to candidates like Keyes or Mike Ditka. And Obama would have been forced to run a campaign, rather than spending time beginning his national "look at me" tour.
