    The reasoning is simple, things we actually aim vs things that explode. The first are directed at a specific target. The later when the ordinance goes off, its not aimed and collateral damage is uncontrollable. A handgrenade is indiscriminate about what it hits/goes after. A rifle shot goes where its pointed there is a difference. ANd exposive devices that are indiscriminate in their targets seems like fair answer to the question


    Yes, but smokeless power and black powder are explosives. The anti-gun groups would be more than happy to ban them, and let you still own air rifles, maybe. I get what you are saying, but those items weren't a problem in the past and should not be today either. We should not give up rights because of urban social decay. The founding father were clear about that point. We should not give an inch on the 2nd Amendment. I would like to see the day when there is no such thing as NFA items. Only weapons that are banned are chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons of mass destruction that even the military should only use defensively and as a last resort.

  2. Really wish Todd would rethink the " "Yes, there are certain arms, hand grenades, explosives, other things like that that do not belong in civilian hands."


    In text, history, and tradition those items were legal.


    You could buy dynamite at the hardware store until the Organized Crime Control Act of 1970, and after that only a $5 license was needed until the Safe Explosives Act of 2002 when the government got paranoid about terrorists.

    That said gunpowder is an explosive, although not technically a high explosive, but we shouldn't be telling them they can restrict any common weapons or components a soldier would use, otherwise you might was well cross off the "well regulated" part of the Second Amendment.

  3. All of those maps seem to only go up to about August of last year.


    Is there a regularly updated map, as well as a list of the counties and other municipalities, anywhere?


    If not, maybe a sticky should be put up with that in it, in the original posting, for quick and complete reference.

    I am not keeping track of municipalities as county Sheriffs and County Attorney hold more power than that of a city or township.


    Anytime I hear about a county passing a sanctuary county measure I will update the map.


    Has been since august or so since I have heard anything.


    Post hear if you have an update, once I verify then I will update the map.

  4. 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?[/size]


    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.



    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.


    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.
