    Since you are unfamiliar with the feature of copy/paste I'll take care of it.....


    The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence presented awards to two Prairie State politicians, the Associated Press reported today. Governor Pat Quinn and outgoing Rep. Bob Dold were both given leadership awards last week, Quinn for trying to ban semi-automatic firearms, and “suburban Chicago Republican” Dold for “cross[ing] party lines to oppose ‘dangerous’ gun legislation.”

    Replacing another Republican gun-grabber Mark Kirk in January, 2011, Dold’s anti-gun sympathies have been clear from the start. The political positions reporting website, “On the Issues,” revealed Dold “Supports restricting gun purchase & possession,” dating their entry “Nov. 2010.”

    It's an Op-Ed.

    My question is, what specific restrictions did Dold speak/vote to do? The op-ed those around a lot of generalities, but nothing specific. I hate these articles....they sound as if they have a beef to grind, very general. In researching, I didn't find Dold voting or saying anything that he did do anything...only the survey he took.

    mustangkiller,

    Maybe the OP wasn't sure about copying & pasting copyrighted (?) material, and so, erring on the side of caution, he just gave the link instead?

    I agree. The OP followed the rules (it's legal to post excerpts, but not the whole piece, without permission).

    Me either. I'd describe them as barely pro gun in nature, and a pyramid scheme with a heavy preference for profit and republicans, with actual stances on gun rights not meaning so much as republican status.
    Answer every question about open carry in Michigan you ever had with one convenient and free book- http://libertyisforeveryone.com/open-carry-resources/

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.
