Travelling control freak and opportunist Mark Kelly is in Illinois campaigning for “common sense” reforms to Illinois gun law (story). There’s just one problem, the cornerstone component of his law is already on the books in Illinois. In order to even touch a firearm one has to have an Illinois F.O.I.D. which involves a lengthy wait and background check by the Illinois State Police.
Sadly this is typical of the anti-rights cultists. “It doesn’t matter if something is already law, we need another law to make it look like we’re doing something or to make life more difficult for law-abiding citizens who can’t afford 24/7 armed bodyguards.” Thankfully this attitude is one reason why they are losing.
