The Lost Creek Trading Post has been a fixture in Marshall for the last 14 years.

But owner Bill Behnke tells the TribStar the passage of the Gun Dealer Licensing Act by the state's legislature would place additional regulations on independent businesses but not “big box” stores such as Walmart.

He also says he can't afford the higher fees to maintain his license to sell guns in Illinois. So he is planning to bring his operation to Indiana where the licensing fees are cheaper.

Good going JB, I cant wait for the backlash.

You just raised taxes a bunch on the poor and middle class.

That's going to come back to bite you in 2022.

Some economists did a projection of how much the Dealer Licensing Act is going to cost Illinois in lost revenue, taxes, sales, and employee purchases from wages earned over the next 10 years and it is shocking and bleak. This includes businesses moving out of the state, people moving in order to keep their FFLs without the onerous restrictions, loss of jobs from closed or emigrated businesses, lost rents for retail locations, reduction in expenditures by shooters who did business with small FFLs who are now going to transfer their business to online or border state firearm sellers, and more.

 

All connected and ancillary monies could tally up to as much as $50 million removed from the Illinois economy by 2030.

 

Good job, Illinois legislature and J.B.! That's the way you fix that multi-billion-dollar pension shortfall!

Would like the link or info on the "economists" and their projections as I would enjoy having one more example of how the legislature is screwing us and the state in general.

I suspect that it will be tough for them to just cross the state line and compete with Top Guns in Terre Haute.

...and increasing my gas tax .19 to .27 with yearly automatic increases requiring no change in law, raising my car registration $50, new taxes on parking, tobacco, etc. Yep, gonna fix it all while they give themselves a raise. Those many half hour sessions must be such a strain on them. /s

Reading this thread gets me emotional (angry.. p$ssed.. WtH.. you get it).

 

Not once have I read any type of news article or even watched on TV when any type of "spending reduction" was looked at..

 

Like many.. I am being taxed out of my home and just can not wait to see what further "ideas" the politicians have to protect the "middle class".

 

As I typed this.. I also thought about JB caught "red handed" dinking around to skirt his "tax liability" on some property.. I actually checked it and it was indeed true and that penis (can't say "pr$ck") was still elected..

 

Barryware signing off! (F$ck!).. [I just broke my keyboard]..

Exactly, people who make 250K will be the first to leave because they can afford to.

Then down it goes to 30K who are already getting the short end of the stick with gas tax and increased permission cards.

LOL...

 

Yet, the idiots swallow it hook line and sinker, the pension liability alone is over $10K per illinois resident, that is a lot of dope and gambling liablilty per resident to even come close to breaking even with the skimmed taxes on gambling and marijuana.  Plus it's Illinois, once the cronies get thier hands into the cookie jar there won't be anything left to pay down any debt, it will be handed out as faux entitlements.  When will the stupid voters of this state wake up?  Oh wait never mind that is probably why they legalized marijuana to start with to keep the voters asleep!

Not happening....in fact under graduated income tax proposal LLC corps would be exempt from the graduated tax....i know several realators who make over $200k between them...they are simply going to form a LLC and avoid the graduated tax...they are going to rape anybody making over $30k ($250k cutoff wont last but a few years) per year...see...madigan is pro business.....enjoy your state..we are moving

The lottery was strictly for schools but once somebody got their hand in that cookie jar everybody did.

Now that cookie jar is empty.

That's why that one took a back seat this session. It gives the well off time to either GTFO

or buy a residence in a different state and keep their businesses here.

It is. But never did they say the lottery money would be in addition to the pre-existing funding. The lottery doesn't bring in nearly enough money to fund the schools, it's a fraction of that. So the reality is that the lottery money frees up money for all things not schools. The politicians did exactly as they said they'd do.

Roughly 80% of my property tax goes to the local school district, their pensions, etc.

Between that AND the lottery money can anybody explain this one.

A kid on one of those little motorized scooters crashed into my mailbox.

It's where it supposed to be and has been for 20+ years.

After I went out and made sure the kid was OK, WHY did he act like my mailbox jumped out and hit him?

This is not the first time this has happened. I want my money back or the ability to do a line by line veto on my tax bill.

Some of these kids are scary stupid. I cant imagine them ever driving a car.

Anyone who has run into a garden variety elementary school teacher (or middle, or even high school depending on subject) knows that a LARGE percentage of them aren't qualified to teach anything. And that is why we see children smash into a mailbox, blame the mailbox. Hit a parked car and blame the parked car like that scene from 40 Year-Old Virgin..."that ****** came out of nowhere!" Abdication of personal responsibility. They're taught "it's someone else's fault" all through school. Shocker that they blame someone or something else. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk

I'm a big fan of "JB the Hutt." The media seems to think it's because of his property taxes, but it ain't (can't be) for property tax fraud. That'd be state domain. FBI is more interested in...major financial crimes. And it's the whole effin' family who's under investigation. Remember, Penny was Obama's Secretary of Commerce and Trump wants to wipe Obama's name from the history books. Looks like he's gonna get his wish with what's going on now. Trump can't be indicted but Obama can be. Sent from my VS987 using Tapatalk
