SirMatthew Posted April 22, 2008 at 03:53 PM Share Posted April 22, 2008 at 03:53 PM I don't know who has been working on Lake County, but I contacted Chairman Suzi Schmidt about the resolution. She is out the rest of the week, but thinks the resolution might have already been received. She is not sure if it has gotten out of committee, but she will check next week and let me know. Her comments from two emails are noted below: "I questioned about 8 members to day and the Board feels this is not a Cpunty Board issue because we do not legislate gun usage. I will let you know what else I find out. We have a very diversified board so it is not as easy as McHenry. What is DuPage and Kane doing so far???" "Thankyou for the information. I am with you on this…..I do not personally own a gun but it is our Constitutional right to have one in our homes. Thanks again, Suzi" I replied that I appreciated her time to look into this while also clarifying this resolution makes no attempt at legislation. I said it was simply an opportunity for counties to live up to their oath and merely oppose gun-control laws which might have a negative impact on their county. The non-binding resolution does not obligate a county to refuse any new law and does not even suggest they should not honor and enforce any new law. They can, however, passively voice an opposition to the creation of any new laws which could harm their county in various ways. Because such laws could negatively affect a county the resolution should be considered county business. While Suzi may or may not be a supporter of a concealed-carry law, she does appear to be a supporter of this particular resolution in support the the 2A. Being chairman I am hopeful she will help communicate my comments to the board and perhaps even see this resolution receives a vote. I will keep you informed.
