Skip to comments.Illinois Gov. Wants Statewide Assault Weapon Ban over Chicago Violence
Posted on 07/17/2014 7:29:08 AM PDT by rktman
Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) is supporting statewide "restrictions" on .50 caliber rifles and bans on "assault weapon" and "high capacity" magazines because of the violence in heavily gun-controlled Chicago.

Did he mention anything about Criminal control?
Just how many of those murders were committed with .50 caliber rifles?
what about all of the other anti-gun laws already in place - aren’t they working??
Criminals don’t follow laws. That’s why we came up with a name for them: criminals!
So this dope of a governor, like all liberals, is offering a cure that has absolutely no relation to the disease.
.50 cal is good for a headline.
Because everyone knows the weapon of choice for an inner city gang thug is a huge Barrett .50 rifle with a scope.
So, does this mean there are no laws today in Chicago against injuring or killing another person? When they make gunz illegal, all this killing will stop because there will finally be a law against it? /s
Will they pass laws against rocks, sticks, knives, chainsaws, hammers, etc.?
If they would ban even larger caliber, that would really stop the bad guys. Should go after 20mm and 40mm cannon as well.
99% of Chicago’s problems could be solved with one simple societal change:
Women, require men to marry you before getting sex.
How about sending in the national guard or military troops to the southside and implementing night time curfews? I don’t care if the people there whine about their loss of freedom and being in a lockdown mode. The rest of America and, for that matter, the folks in the other parts of Chicago are sick of that area being turned into an American Beirut and Baghdad.
LMAO... Does this idiot think this will stop gang violence and their use of assault weapons?
Of course he doesn’t! It’s just an excuse to confiscate.
They could stop the gun violence by giving away guns..................
The U.S. is third in the world in murders. Take out Chicago, Washington,Detroit and New Orleans and we are fourth from the bottom.
All four cities have been ruled by Democrats. All four have former mayors convicted in federal court of criminal offenses. And are near bankrupt.
We have a mental health problem disguised as a gun problem.And that mental health problem is liberalism.
No, and neither did ne mention the DemocRat attack on the black family that has left millions of black children without a stable father in the house.
But you can use one to shoot through a tank or shoot down an airliner at 30,000 feet!
Listen up gangbangers, your assault weapons are about to be banned. Kindly refrain from killing using these weapons. Mkay...thanks.
Hmmm. I don’t think Detroit is that far away. Maybe they should give the Detroit Chief of Police a call and seek a little advice from him. I don’t think the demographics are that different between the two are they? Seems like Detroit has told it’s folks to man up and arm up and-——ta da. Less crime. Maybe. Haven’t seen any data to support the Chief but it makes sense to me.
Just how many of those murders were committed with .50 caliber rifles?...Or so-called assault weapons?
Answer: Zero percent.
The goal is not to limit crime, but to disarm the resistance.
“An armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one may have to back up his acts with his life.” - Robert A. Heinlein.............
I would bet that most of the murders and other crimes are done with 9mm or similar caliber weapons....................
Good paraphrase danka
Here’s the Detroit report:
What has worked for Detroit may not work in Chicago because many of the shootings in Chicago are gang related. But it couldn’t hurt.
I’m surprised he didn’t call for limiting soft drink sizes, “to combat street violence.”
If the Democrats are going to disregard the 2nd Amendment to ban arms, then the arms owners should have the right to disregard the First Amendment and ban the Democrats who ban arms in defiance of the Constitution. Turnabout is fairplay, unless you are a so-called Liberal Democrat, of course.
If Rauner was smart he would run against Quinn on “they are trying to take away your guns. . .your security” and on the diseases and wave of crimes coming into Illinois by the illegals.
PS How would you like to live in Chicago without a firearm?
“99% of Chicagos problems could be solved with one simple societal change:
Women, require men to marry you before getting sex.”
But that won’t solve the problem because the men will “marry” a dozen or more women if that’s what it takes to continue to procreate all over town. And it won’t make them provide for their offspring either. The only “real answer” is castration.
If the folks doing the shooting on the South Side actually HAD those kind of weapons, they would be RUNNING the city - not just the South Side.
Simpler: "Women, if you have a child out of wedlock, then you will get zero money from government. Get married to a man with a decent job, go to work yourself, or starve. Those are your choices."
Only if you could find responsible people in Chicago.
It is not just in Chicago. . .around this neck of the woods, more babies mean more $$$ from the government even in a two parent home.
You left out the local church charity option,
which I would definitely keep in there.
Of course, the pastors would be a lot more diligent about the use of their charity resources,
and just might require some behavioral/spending changes on the party of the petitioner.
Well of course he does. Leaders will do anything to try to blame gun violence on anything or anyone other than Black inner-city kids.
This could be stopped in about a matter of weeks if they truly wanted to stop it.
I don’t think these people actually have a goal of procreating.
They’re not thinking past the big O.
Thinning the herd is just one way.....................
I’m sure most gun homicides in Chicago are 9mm, .40, & .45.
.50s & assault rifles got nothing to do with it.
Packing my Fiddy
Deadly as cancer
Shows I mean biddness
Baggies draggin' like an anchor.
Interesting stats, thanks.
We are always hearing from the leftists how high on the chart the USA is in homicide rates without your rational information which shows the cause of the close to the top rating
Obama doesn’t want United States Constitutional Republic type citizens to be able to defend themselves and our country when the revolution he is bringing on takes place.
Of course his good buddy, unrepentant murdering terrorist Bill Ayers, has stated that 25 million Americans would be a good number to wipe out.
Re the article: Another example of the goal of only the authorities and the criminal having weapons that shoot.
Interesting how the line has continued to be more blurred between the two factions.
They also can't be accused of being racist. Nowadays, probably 80% of the murders in the state are in $hitcago - and most of them are by gang-bangers, the vast majority of whom are black.
But, saying that is raciss too. So here we are back to making everybody a criminal so they can't be accused of being raciss.
And hopefully a congregational committee is keeping an eye on how the pastor spends Church money on needy single moms, lest they belatedly discover the Church has been funding the keeping of the pastor's mistresses.
Personally, I would enjoy watching the attempt of a drive by shooting utilizing a 35 lb. .50 Cal BMG pointed out the window of a stolen sedan. I certainly wouldn't want to be in the back seat tho.........
Yep, you definitely need an accountability policy in place - we’re all sinners.
