    Obama's home state offers a lesson on path to gun laws

    Thought I'd share it with the community.

    One choice quote:
    I agree. Let's deregulate the teddy bear market.

    Heck, Chicago has been the "lab experiment" for oppressive anti-gun legislation for over forty years and has an annual firearms-related murder rate that rivals most military theatres of operation in the Third World and the Left's call for "more" is stupefying to say the least.

    Hopefully, the good people of Illinois are sick of being treated like subjects and will stand up on their hind legs and tell the pols to lay-off.

    Just how are Teddy Bears more regulated than guns?
    I haven't bought a Teddy Bears in decades but I don't think they require a NICS check.

    Teddy bears more regulated... bs. I haven't seen serial numbers on teddy bears or anyone thinking a brown or black military style teddy bear should be banned. Oh... most bears are brown or black... imagine that.

    Gee, no mention of the abject failure of Chicago gun control on the crime rate? I see the hypocrisy of this was pointed out quickly in the comments section.

    Thankfully, enough of us Illinois residents called, faxed and emailed the congressmen to stay the attack at least for now. We only had a few days notice about the bills to spring into action. I thought for sure if we could do it then others states would be able to also. I personally feel for New Yorkers, it seems to be even more shady there than even here.

    Have you ever thought about building a wall around Chicago and selling the enclosed area to Canada?

    I'll also add the metropolitan areas of California to that list, but loan them to North Korea for a while...at least until the population comes around and misses the real America.

    I was not going to go that far, but I really did just myself "I wonder which state they are talking about?"

    Every day. Actually my plan was to push it into the lake, but yours is probably more Christian.

    We tried to give Detroit to Canada for years.....and change the Detroit river, so it's on their side, but....they said....a....we ain't that stupid!

    Been saying for years that Chicago proper/Cook County should be made a District of Illinois. We want to secede downstate.
