Why Do We Need To Ban Assault Weapons In Lake Forest?

Why Do We Need To Ban Assault Weapons In Lake Forest?

“Gov. Pat Quinn has until July 9 to sign House Bill 183, otherwise known as the Firearm Concealed Carry Act, which sets the clock ticking.”  So what does this have to do with Highland Park and Melrose Park banning assault weapons on June 24th?  Why is my city council going to possibly enact a similar ordinance tonight to merely preserve their home rule powers?  We are experiencing yet another tentacle of the police state strangling us around our very necks, right where we sleep.  This is the week of the fourth of July, a celebration of American Independence.  I hate to say that the nation that was born on that day some two hundred and thirty-seven years ago is dead, but it is!  All I can say to the people who will try to enforce this ridiculous rule is good luck.  Lake Forest has some of the highest gun ownership in Lake County, and for that matter the state.  Most of the population is wealthy and posses  dwellings in other cities and states.  I’m sure they will have no problem taking their property tax dollars elsewhere to a place where no one has been swayed by the threats of a government crumbling to its knees and lashing out at anything that may be considered harmful if…….

To all of you that support such a measure, grow a pair and stand up for yourself!  All of these little changes to “protect” us from possible mentally unstable individuals or particular type of weapon that’s more dangerous than the next aren’t meant to protect us.  These kinds of moves bring us closer to lists of gun owners being collected and shared amongst law enforcement.  This isn’t something you want to see, once they’re gone you never get them back.  I’m going to try to make this meeting tonight, it starts at 7:30 at 220 E. Deerpath Rd.

Here's what they're all scared of...by the way, many handguns with aftermarket clips can carry more than 30 rounds....scary!
