  1. Kyle Rittenhouse confirmed on the stand that his rifle was loaded with FMJ.
  2. If an FMJ didn't tumble, wouldn't it make a through-and-through hole ? The top part of that guy's arm was blown off. Its hard to believe hydro-static shock did that.
  3. I'm guessing it wasn't ball ammo? It almost took off that guy's arm off - "Gaige Grosskreutz, medic and 'Sole Survivor' of Kenosha Shootings" I searched a little but couldn't find what ammo was used.
  4. I have to get the heck out of this bankrupt insane asylum called "Illinois."
  5. I submitted my FOID renewal in March. I received my FOID card on Saturday. The renewal date is 8/31
  6. Here is the amicus brief filed by Senators Whitehouse, Hirono, Blumenthal, Gillibrand and Senator Dick Durbin. https://www.whitehouse.senate.gov/imo/media/doc/New York Rifle & Pistol Association v. New York (Whitehouse amicus FINAL).pdf The brief asked the Supreme Court to turn down New York State Rifle & Pistol Association's petition to have the Supreme Court hear the case. Of course the Supreme Court has decided to hear the case. The brief contains a threat to the current Supreme Court if the court doesn't obey them:
  7. I know that Heller left open the possibility for some restrictions, sometime called time, place and manner restrictions, though I've never seen that verbiage used in a SCOTUS opinion. In my opinion, one of the most egregious infringements is the ban on public transportation while politicians simultaneously excuse public transportation from Common Carrier Liability. Other transportation companies, such as Greyhound bus, taxis and various shuttles have a duty to its passengers to use the highest degree of care consistent with the mode of conveyance used and the practical operation of its business as a common carrier as it relates to the safety of passengers. Failure to fulfill this duty constitutes negligence. Obviously the CTA is very dangerous but people who are assaulted on the CTA have no legal recourse against the city, whereas they would have legal recourse against a private carrier. To be stripped of the right to defend oneself and stripped of the ability to seek legal recourse is a double injustice.
  8. 2020 CTA crime statistics data set: https://data.cityofchicago.org/Public-Safety/CTA-2020-thefts-robberies-drug-offenses-and-violen/kyky-2i4x/data What is not in the data set are things like trespassing on CTA property, theft of services of the CTA/passing bad checks etc... graffiti/vandalism and similar shenanigans. It looks like there were 2835 crime on the CTA last year. The crimes that most people are concerned about are violent crimes against passengers and it will take more time to break that out...
  9. The current environment with the CTA is creating incredible numbers of victims. The situation with the CTA is very similar to the state of affairs for all of Illinois before Shepard v. Madigan. It seems to me that if a victim / plaintiff similar to Mary Shepard challenged the prohibition of carrying on the CTA, the prohibition would be found unconstitutional in the same way that state-wide prohibition on carrying was found to be unconstitutional.
  10. Cops seek group that beat, robbed man at Belmont Red Line station https://cwbchicago.com/2021/03/cops-seek-group-that-beat-robbed-man-at-belmont-red-line-station.html
  11. Prosecutors: Rapist who followed woman from Belmont Red Line was supposed to be on electronic monitoring https://cwbchicago.com/2021/03/prosecutors-rapist-who-followed-woman-from-belmont-red-line-was-supposed-to-be-on-electronic-monitoring.html
  12. CWB now has a CTA section: https://cwbchicago.com/category/cta Truly frightening. When are the courts going to overturn this dangerous infringement on our RTKBA ?
  13. The big draw for me was that Walmart didn't gouge on ammo prices during the Obama ammo crisis. Now that they've stopped sell ammo, I probably won't go to Walmart ever again. Walmart is filled with the dumbest people on Earth. When I approach Walmart I see people coming out of the Entrance. How dumb do you have to be to enter the store through the Exit and exit the store through the Entrance. The dummies are also incapable of following the Covid 19 traffic management arrows on the floor. How hard is it to follow a green arrow? OMG they're so dumb.
  14. Carjackers shoot at CTA employee in company lot while stealing his car https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2021/1/15/22233315/carjackers-shoot-at-cta-employee-in-company-lot-while-stealing-his-car
  15. Man stabbed on Red Line train in South Loop https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2020/12/13/22172289/man-stabbed-on-red-line-train-in-south-loop
  16. Charges filed after man allegedly punches cop at Jackson Red Line stop https://chicago.suntimes.com/crime/2020/12/9/22166764/brian-debleyzer-punches-chicago-cop-jackson-red-line-station
  17. Police: Attack on CTA Blue Line train in Oak Park leaves passenger with head trauma, eye injury https://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/oak-park/ct-oak-blue-line-attack-tl-1210-20201204-njrdfgssfjgb3khpnxark7noge-story.html
  18. Woman gets 2 years for series of Red Line attacks https://cwbchicago.com/2020/11/woman-gets-2-years-for-series-of-red-line-attacks.html Seems like a light sentence for someone who used a metal object to stab someone in the chest. Tatyona Davis will probably serve 20 months of that 2 year sentence. The Cook County State's Attorney's office and Cook County judges give out recognizance bonds for anything short of murder. Statistically, you have a pretty good chance of sharing the bus or train car with a violent offender anytime you ride the CTA.
  19. Man in serious condition after pushed in front of oncoming train at Jackson; Red Line rerouted https://abc7chicago.com/red-line-cta-rerouted-after-man-pushed-in-front-of-train-police/8316661/ In what way has the prohibition of carrying on the CTA made anyone safer ?
  20. Police search for suspects after CTA passenger beaten, robbed on Pink Line https://abc7chicago.com/cta-pink-line-chicago-police-damen-street-station/8188061/
  21. If they required me to wear a bra, I reckon I'd wear one, mmmm hmmm
  22. Who was the attorney who represented John Horstman - in the UUW case against Horstman, (not the subsequent lawsuit Horstman filed against DuPage County).
  23. The ammo case at the St.Charles store has some ammo now, 22 LR, and some other rifle calibers, this is the first time I've ever seen 22 Short at my Walmart. But there was no 380 ACP, 9mm, 40 S&W, or 45 ACP.
  24. The ammo case at the Walmart in St.Charles was completely empty a week ago. I haven't checked lately...
