Jim Sacia column 8/01: Very positive
Posted 01 August 2012 - 04:58 PM
I just read this in our local paper as I often read Jim's columns. He brings up concealed carry usually a couple times a month, at least. He does tend to be positive but doesn't always go this far in his columns. This is just a portion from his column today, which is also posted on his website. I'm just outside of his district but I love this guy. I believe he has served for many years now.
"Two issues have been huge this past week. First – the tragedy in Aurora, Colorado. Second – is the opening of Thomson Prison.
I have received several emails saying see that’s what happens when people have guns – referring to the Aurora tragedy. One even insinuated I should be ashamed of myself for advocating for concealed carry.
Are you kidding me? Some wacked out nut job goes off and starts shooting people and it’s the gun’s fault? Have you never seen the bumper sticker, “when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns”? To me it says it all. Add to that, “You’ll get my gun when you pry my cold clammy fingers off from it”.
Illinois remains the last state in our union to pass concealed carry and yes I believe it will pass during veto session in November.
Illinois has not proven itself to be the brightest state in the nation. Sadly we are last in just about every category and last to pass concealed carry is not something to be proud of in my opinion. Nut jobs are going to receive their notoriety be it with a gun, a car, a bomb, poison, and what have you. Why do we give these clowns any acknowledgement at all? It’s exactly what their demented minds want. He doesn’t deserve the ink it takes to write his name, and he sure won’t get it from me."
