You have to figure who you are dealing with. They do not think about the big picture.

They only think about themselves.

Maybe we should all just move and we could be Texas Carry or Indiana Carry or fill in the blank Carry?

What is wrong with body armor?


Easier to control people. The 2nd is to ensure a free and prosperous nation. Rahm wants the least resistance possible while imposing his tyranny on the American citizens stuck in Chicago.

It always seems that these laws coming from the Chicago democrats whittle down people's ability to help themselves and create more dependency on their government


That’s the point. End goal is socialism.

I don't own body armor. I'd like the option to own it if i feel like it. Unfortunately, I don't see body armor as a protected right the same way firearms are.

 

This will be interesting to watch. If they can't ban body armor and bump stocks, my guess is they'll have zero chance of passing an "assault weapons" ban or a magazine capacity limit.

This is a test. Based on the way today's session is going, I'm assuming bills will pass both houses to force Gov. Rauner's hand.

These people are wacko. They won't protect our kids in school. They won't let us protect our kids in school either. People say body armor and think about some felon kitted up like a SEAL. Instead they`re banning a protective plate in a book bag that helps should the kids have to hide under their desks while law enforcement hides behind their cars.

Do you or anyone you know own or use a bulletproof backpack. I am working on a story and would like to interview you. Please email krlbruin@hotmail.com

Out West a group of citizens opposed what they believed to be illegal action by the Federal government, and assembled in force, with arms to resist arrest for their actions. Numerous supporters joined them, also armed, and the Federal LEOs backed off. While the instigators of the action were later arrested, all charges were dropped eventually. Are there enough supporters of decency and rationality in Chicago to organize and refuse to obey irrational and unConstitutional restrictions on the right to keep and bear arms? Would it not be a beautiful thing to see a large group of armed citizens telling the authorities that they will not tolerate the tyranny of Emanuel and his minions, and will resist if need be with force of arms? Would the CPD force the issue, or back off as the FBI did with the Bundys out West? During the Jim Crow era there were occasions when armed black men refused to obey the gun control laws of their state which sought to disarm them, and authorities backed down. Maybe the time is coming for people today to be willing to do the same here in Illinois. Or they can just complain and die a death of a thousand cuts, bit by bit until their freedom is totally gone.

Arms, Armor:

Knives are protected under the 2nd, and they're not firearms either.
Both knives and protective clothing will stand up to judicial review, when it gets to that highest venue.

Send us an invite to the body armor parade.

A way to approach this in a non confrontational and civilly disobedient manner would be similar to “concealed is concealed”. Unless you are a paranoid mall ninja kitted up for Armageddon, I think that discrete armor won’t attract a lot of attention. If you want to play “Army”, that’s another manner.

I don't own any body armor, just some AR500 targets I haven't shot at yet.
When picking a firearm, you want one that is like a heavy chick. A gun that is reliable, doesn't mind getting rough, and one that goes bang every time. What's the point of having something pretty looking it isn't up for the task?

The courts have a long history of supporting the legislature in protecting the violent criminal from potential harm from his victim.
Look at the long list of prohibited defensive items listed in the UUW statute.

The government disengaged for one simple reason.....they didn't want a repeat of Ruby Ridge or Waco.  Those things led directly to McVeigh, and the rise of the militia groups.  

 

I watched as the militias "pushed back" the federal government.  One big group of people, massed together makes a fantastic target for a single Apache gunship.  

 

The federal government has had us by the shorthairs since the 30's.  Once full autos were regulated, and our military technology grew, that very quickly made any sort of insurrection moot.  

 

It you're "kitting up" to fight the government, all you're doing is cosplay.  Nothing wrong with owning plates and plate carriers if you own them for SHTF.  

 

Before you say that our troops will not follow unconstitutional orders...think back to hurricane Katrina when the National Guard went door to door confiscating firearms, and not a single person resisted lol.  

 

The only thing we have going for us is the threat of insurrection, and the effects it would have on the economy, if, and that's a big IF,  enough gun owners actually rose up to fight.  The number that actually would, is a far smaller number than the people who say they would online.

I want to point out as well, numerous fire departments have body armor available for use in an active shooter.  This law would make that illegal.  

 

Many politicians also wear body armor. This law would make it illegal for them as well. Perhaps we should support it. I'd pay money to see the mayor or aldermen in Chicago prosecuted for breaking this law.

Never going to happen.  The pols are above the law and much more important then us and their lives are much more valuable then ours.

This bill is dead on an Illinois level so no point in talking about it.

Before it getting killed they did add an exception for backpacks and VIP's (politicians). Thank your local gun lobby and gun enthusiasts for killing it (was rolled into the Bauer bill), Todd V, ISRA, ASC.
