    I was curious if anyone has considered using civil disobedience in trying to get Illinois laws changed to be in accord with the US Constitution?

    This form of protest has been successfully used by many groups (mostly far left wing) in the past, and I believe should not be summarily dismissed.

    This form of non-violent protest may not seem to compatible with the open carrying of a firearm at first, but all the open carry confrontations I've seen with LEOs on this board, have been non-violent on the part of the open carrier.

    This form of protest would defiantly result in direct confrontation of LEOs and arrests (and possible convictions), but could have similar results as the lunch counter protests of the 60's.

    I offer this idea as more of a discussion, but I'd be willing to put my freedom on the line to ensure that my rights are respected and de-criminalized.

    Unfortunatly, the far left agenda is also wanted by the judges.
    The second amendment is dispised by the same judges.
    Just look at the soccer mom ruling in PA.
    So unless you get lucky, and get a jury at all, and then get someone with
    common sence on said jury. Go for it, me I'll just buy my lottery ticket:P

    I will vote not guilty at your trail though, that is if you ever get one.

    You're being cute, right? Hitler dang near got shot during that action and was put in prison for a spell, for instigating the uprising.

    I heard Boortz's DC correspondent today describe Americans as politically reactive only to crises. $4 per gallon wasn't enough of a crisis to instigate action other than political posturing. 9/11 wasn't. But mortgage deadbeats have moved Americans to action. Perhaps an Obomination in the White House will move Americans to Affirmative Reaction on that front.
