  1. I would think that would make it a little easier, as it would behoove the village board to ensure a uniform set of ordinances for the entire village.
  2. Have a look at 29 and 34 in the house map (near Chicago, just to the south) They have a sliver that goes up in the suburbs, and huge "bulb" that goes south into rural areas, to ensure that the urban voters dilute the rural. I used to live in 29 and I'm sure Rep Jones doesn't care a lick about anyone south of I80
  3. Of course because Russian will never meet the conditions any attempt to remove the ban will face an uphill battle in Congress and the courts
  4. It appears the ban will apply to any ammo or firearm manufactured in Russia, regardless of what country its being imported from. But yes, all a company would have to do is set up a factory in another country and manufacture and import from there. I'm kindof hoping Barnaul does this. My AK likes their ammo lol
  5. 754,743. since IL is losing a district. But when you make that your sole metric you get what IL has already: Districts enclosing 400,000 urban democrats, and 350,000 rural conservatives
  6. After the census IL will be reduced to 17 districts, or exactly 6 counties per district Cook county's population is 5,275,541, meaning it would get 6.98 districts, almost exactly 7 Leaving 10 districts for the remaining 101 counties, or almost exactly 10 counties per Of course the division is by population not number of counties, so it wouldn't be 10 counties per district anyway. For example some of the collar counties would basically be one district each, meaning some district will enclose more than 10 counties. In fact the 55 smallest counties would compose just 1 district all together, if they were contiguous Sure, its not as simple as just circle any 10 counties and call it a district, but I'd wager you could draw a decent map using county lines, with Cook being the sole exception
  7. And at a greater carbon footprint. But that's what the environmentalists want. They don't want cleaner or more efficient fossil fuels, they want to eliminate them entirely, therefore any innovation that might cause some in the general public to say "this is good enough, we don't have to ban it now" must be stymied (same logic applies to gun control)
  8. I guess it would apply to someone who had a FOID, bought a gun, and then let the FOID expire. Or someone who moved from out of state with guns and never got a FOID.
  9. I think he means district lines should run along county lines, even if the district encloses multiple counties Of course you'd still have to squeeze 7 or 8 districts into Cook County, due to the high population
  10. I see they want to expand 2 to dilute even more rural voters Here is the current map, if you want to compare
  11. This never happens under Chevron, quite the opposite in fact. The Chevron defense essentially says the court can't find an agency misinterpreted a statute, because agency's power to interpret the statute supersedes the court's interpretation
  12. So if its deceptive to market it as a combat weapon, what does that mean for all the people who keep calling it a military-grade weapon of war?
  13. And if they had turned over a curated collection of documents containing only those relevant to the case Yahoo would be writing an article about how Remington is deliberately failing to comply with the court orders to turn over "all documents"
  14. With some clever design you don't even have to go that far. For example for e-tickets Metra uses a moving background that changes color when you tap it. That way if you try to show the conductor a screenshot or even a gif/movie you won't fool them
  15. The problem with the color coded DL background is you introduce yet another agency into doing background checks. Secretary of State would need to do a BGC to determine who is/might be prohibited in order to determine what color to use. Ummmmm, no thanks, there is NO NEED for a BGC for a DL. The only other possible way to do it is use a different color for FOID &/or CCL holders and simply declare others as “prohibited” thus instantly identifying who has what. THAT’S even worse. Not only that, but it would also seem to introduce an invasion of privacy. Anyone who you have to show your DL to will then know you're a prohibited person
