Prompted by recent mass shootings across the country and gun violence in Illinois, the General Assembly formed a task force to examine whether state laws need to be changed and this is hardly an area with any "easy" subjects to start with....

...but with paragraphs ;-)

What this state needs is a panel that determines if what they want to pass is constitutional.

Of that democrat list, iirc, Rep Bristow is more of a downstate Dem favorable to the 2A.
Now we get to see whom Durkin appoints.

Even though she ran as being 2a friendly I still voted for her opponent.

Illinois House creates gun task force, 'omnibus bill' could be on horizon

...There’s a lot of bills that we’re trying to push in Springfield as Democrats that Republicans are pushing back on and vice versa,” Ford said. “It will be our job to ensure that all of those are put on the table.”

One idea Ford plans to look into is an interstate agreement with neighboring states to deal with the gun dealers who are selling firearms that cause gun crime in Illinois.

“I do believe that Illinois could work with its bordering states to make sure that we form some type of collaboration as it relates to gun laws to protect the borders of each state,” he said. “We can definitely do something like that.”

One policy that could come under the task force’s crosshairs is the 2013 enactment of concealed carry laws. Ford said gun violence has increased since the law’s enactment.

“We have to examine if our concealed carry law needs some amending,” he said.

For Ford, gun violence has hit close to home. He recently lost a 15-year-old family member in a shooting on Chicago’s west side....

It was worth repeating, in case you missed it the first time. I'm just pointing at the words, not saying them.
The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

It's not.

 

They don't need a panel to determine that.

Amazing that they are blaming us for the basically flat instances of shootings and murders in Chicago once you discount 2016 as an aberration . Basically "CCW is bad and causes more crime because we say so".

Don’t you see? Its about sending a message to the community, the fact you allow people to carry guns, weapons of war and death on our streets sends a message that this is OK, that gun violence is OK that having a gun is OK and we need to send a message its not OK /s

 

 

That is the “logic” we are dealing with though.

Yep they need a panel, close your eyes and imagine the following.

All CCL are recalled and held by the ISP for return after this experiment.
Start next year with NO CCL holders, cards are all in the hands of the ISP.
Let’s start around May 1st 2020 and run thru 6 months to September 30th.
If there are No murders in Crook County or the City proper then they can amend the CCL all they want and would have proved US to be the problem.
If the crimes and shooting, murders, robbery’s and car jacking continue then the CCL holders will be sent back their cards post haste.
Upon receiving these cards there will no longer be any no firearms signage, no prohibited places within reason ie schools?
Public transportation is a go, ALL of Crook County is a go.

Now here’s the funny part of this study, after they lose and we get the cards back.......those committing crimes of any sort with a firearm involved shall be held for trial and a minimum sentence of 10 years applied. NO plea deals, use a firearm, 10 years.........

Of course I won’t be around to see this happen as it would be in year 2090 if then.
But in the mean time I can dream the impossible dream!
