...

... Creates the Illiana Task Force ... to reduce violence in local communities ...

Will there also be Illisin, Illiwa, Illiri, and Illiky task forces? There's enough local Illinois violence that Indiana can't be blamed for all of it.

 

Because Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, and Kentucky aren't right next door to Chicago so they have less violent crime flowing into their states. There's a corridor from Gary, through northern Hammond and East Chicago right into the south side of Chicago that's pretty much one giant bad neighborhood

So making recommendations to the Governor and the General Assembly on suggested legislative solutions is more window dressing since Illinois law doesn't apply in Indiana.

I don't know if I agree with that, because sometimes the thing that the MOST needy people require MOST is the ability to defend themselves against predatory criminals, and survival due to self-defense is a need that supersedes even eating, in the immediate scope.

I thought about that, but I don't think our fight is to provide firearms at no expense anymore than we would fight to provide cars, phones, etc at no expense.

 

Besides, money is fungible.
