    But they don't oppose all of the other unconstitutional legislation that those in Illinois have to deal with, and also enforce that legislation every day? That's a little odd.

    I will take any positive lite I can see in the state of IL. Seeing this was a complete shock to me and I'm betting to anyone else that has had the misfortune to deal with them over a gun in your car.

    Btw, the reason I posted it in the KY area is that living in the Paducah it is very common to go to Metropolis, IL to the gambling boat. It is also common to drive up to Marion to the closest Target store. This end of KY allows you to be in 4 different states in less then an hours travel. It isn't uncommon to have family scattered around just across the borders either and a quick 15 minute drive to your brothers house can send you into the people's republic of IL and their unconstitutional laws on guns. It is so easy to relax and break laws by just not keeping your vigilance on the subject.

    You would find that most sheriffs in Illinois are pro-gun, pro-citizen.

    Unfortunately, it's Chicago that runs the state instead of Springfield.

    Sometimes I wish that our country was a true democracy. Then I look at how uninformed most people are and the low rates most elections receive. It is then that I realize that some people shouldn't have a say. LOL

    Dumb people should not be allowed to vote~~there should be a mental health and competency test before anyone can be registered to vote.

    This is horrible idea.

    Our system would be fine if we actually stood up to politicians who disobey the Constitution. Mob rule is a very bad idea for a political system.

    I'd rather the testing be for the elected officials. I don't like the idea of passing a test to use my freedoms. I will grant however it would be nice if only smart and informed people voted.
