Sorry Jules…I don’t take Constitutional advice from Hollyweird. Especially from one who promotes gun violence in her movies. Hypocrite.
Just another “feel good” proposal that will do absolutely NOTHING to address Chiraq’s gang and gun violence.
From MyFoxChicago: At least two gun control measures could be addressed in the upcoming veto session of the Illinois General Assembly.
The proposed measures come as reaction continues to the mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 58 people dead and more than 500 wounded, The (Springfield) State Journal-Register reported.
The legislation introduced by Rep. Martin Moylan, a Des Plaines Democrat, would ban the sale of assault weapons, large-caliber rifles, bump stocks that allow rapid firing of weapons and large-capacity magazines, which are described in the bill as holding 10 or more rounds of ammunition.
Moylan has previously proposed similar measures, but they haven’t passed the legislature. He thinks circumstances may change since it was discovered that Las Vegas shooter, Stephen Paddock, had reserved hotel rooms in Chicago overlooking the Lollapalooza music festival last summer. Paddock didn’t use the rooms.
“I’m passionate about it this time because of the events that happened in Las Vegas,” Moylan said. “Especially since the guy was scoping out a Chicago site, I think this bears a lot of weight on it. I would hope I get a lot of support, both on Republicans and Democrats.”
Rep. Kathleen Willis, a Democrat from Addison, has also proposed a measure. Her proposed bill* would create state licensing of gun dealers in Illinois.
*I tried to find more about this “state licensing” bill yet couldn’t locate anything more than proposed in this story. No doubt it will involve more bureaucratic and prohibitive actions that will do nothing to stop Chiraq’s gang and gun violence.
“This bill is something that has been worked on for 15 years,” Willis said. “I don’t think that it is definitely tied to the Las Vegas shootings. I think this is a good business practice bill.”
She said 16 states already require a state license for gun dealers in addition to a federal license.
Legislators are expected to meet in Springfield for the session starting Oct. 24.
Last month I told you how Planned Parenthood supporter Kristen Bell was a spokeswomyn for Enterprise Rent-A-Car. From my post: Libtard actress Kristen Bell is a big supporter of baby butchers Planned Parenthood. She is also very vocal about her disdain for President Trump. Bell is also a rabid anti-gunner.
She and her husband have also pushed products for Samsung.
Now the baby-butcher supporter is shilling for Houzz.
Houzz, according to Wikipedia, is a website and online community about architecture, interior design and decorating, landscape design and home improvement. The Houzz platform and mobile apps feature photos, articles, product recommendations, and a user forum. The company was founded in 2009 and is based in Palo Alto, California.
From NY Post (from Mark Moore): The city could turn into the Wild West if an NRA-backed plan becomes law and allows any tourist with a concealed-weapons permit to carry a hidden gun in New York, Sen. Chuck Schumer said Sunday.
“How low can you go?’’ Schumer (D-NY) said of the National Rifle Assocation, referring to its support of the proposed “Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act,’’ which would override New York’s strict gun laws.
He noted that the National Rifle Association, “just days after the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history … is engaging their allies in Congress to push through a dangerous national concealed-carry law.’’
New York has very stringent concealed-carry regulations and does not recognize out-of-state concealed-carry permits. But under the proposed legislation, New York would have to recognize carry permits issued in other states.
Schumer urged congressional lawmakers to tell the NRA that “enough is enough” for pushing the measure after Las Vegas, where a lone gunman opened fire on a country music concert, killing 58 and injuring hundreds more.
Schumer said the proposed law would allow visitors to make an end run around New York’s gun regulations, which are among the strictest in the country, and pack heat on the subway, in transportation hubs, Central Park and Times Square. “We must stop this madness, and Congress must stand up to the bosses of the NRA and say, ‘Enough is enough,’ ” he said.
Schumer said the powerful gun rights lobby signaled its intention to pursue the legislation when it released a statement on the Las Vegas shootings and asked the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to review regulations on “bump stocks,” which 64-year-old Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock used to enable his semi-automatic rifles to mimic automatic fire.
“On behalf of our five million members across the country, we urge Congress to pass National Right-to-Carry reciprocity, which will allow law-abiding Americans to defend themselves and their families from acts of violence,” the NRA said in its statement.
The NYPD and the city’s five district attorneys blasted the legislation last spring, shortly after it was introduced by US Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC).
Schumer said the House Judiciary Committee could take up the legislation as soon as this month.
