That means one more for an even 2/3 of the state's counties. There really has to be a way this 2/3 supermajority can be capitalized on to do something to move the needle for the entire state towards the anti-firearm-confiscation side. I am talking legislatively, not just feel-good platitudes.

Who gets to keep and read books? The Media? Or is it the People?

Only way is to replace current state government with one where one house is representative of local government and not population.

The way the state government is setup it is impossible not have a majority biased representation by Chicago Democrats.

Anyone have any updates on Will county? I know they failed to pass a resolution at one point but is it dead in the water?

Grundy Co will have a referendum question on the Nov 2020 ballot.

Shall Grundy County oppose the passage of any bill where the Illinois General Assembly desires to restrict the individual right of United States citizens as protected by the second amendment?

If that is question, then that is not same as sanctuary referendum. That is actually weak stance. Chicago Dems are going to be laughing, oh no Grundy county does not like our gun bill...

Even if that passes, still don't feel they should be considered a sanctuary county.

The gun county sanctuary movement is spreading across the country. Was Illinois first to do this?

If you went to the link and listened, that's not the wording they're using.  It's just an example.

 

And I'd like to see the Chicago Dem's come here and laugh in the Sheriff's face and see how that goes for them.

 

They've never, ever shown up here in any meaningful capacity that I'm aware of in my 50 plus years and my family has been heavily involved in this county politically since 1929.  Most of that time we had Dem sheriff's and they never put up with outsider's **** either.

 

I actually have nothing to do with what will be on the ballot as of right now now, but I can talk to the Co Board Chairman anytime I'd like. 

 

How exactly would you like me to tell him how you'd like it worded best?  This is going on the 2020 general election ballot.  Something more than a cpl sentences won't work.

 

It's all symbolic and meaningless to me anyways.  The sheriff doesn't have to do what the resolution says and he can do the same without one.
