...More than two years after Aurora mass shooting exposed flaws in state gun laws, Illinois Democrats have yet to act

 

A month after Gov. J.B. Pritzker took office in 2019, giving Democrats complete control in Springfield, flaws in Illinois gun laws were exposed when a convicted felon whose state firearm owners identification card had been revoked opened fire in an Aurora warehouse, killing five co-workers and wounding a sixth along with five police officers.

 

The case became a rallying point for gun safety advocates, whove pushed for mandatory fingerprinting for FOID card applications, universal background checks for gun buyers, and a system that ensures people whose FOID cards are revoked hand over their weapons to authorities....

At least there's this:

 

 

Lawmakers are set to reconvene in Springfield next week to take up an energy policy overhaul. But while House Speaker Emanuel “Chris” Welch, a Hillside Democrat, said in a statement Tuesday that the House also would take up other outstanding issues, the Senate’s gun safety legislation was notably absent from the list.

a REAL reporter would have said that the Democrats, in the tradition of grabbing a mile when given an inch, kept on loading in poison pills into the proposed legislation, making it easy to vote against and handicapping their ability to get even 50 yes votes, and now, should the legislation be brought up for vote again, it will require 60 yes votes to pass.

 

WHO is the impediment here, the steadfast gun rights crowd or the over reaching gun "safety" legislators?

 

 

Remember, this is essentially (in large) the same crowd of legislators that closed about half of the gun dealers in the state, and are now proposing the requirement that every gun transfer go through this reduced population, at a ruinous mandated cost and responsibility.

 

 

Talk about UNFUNDED MANDATES !!!!.

Well, politicians have their consciences removed upon entering office, so maybe we try to see if the writers of stories in newspapers have any pride left after their professions leap from nonpartisan to rabidly partisan. Not "slanted".but outright glaring propagandizing.
