I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.

NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

“The ISRA has learned from a credible source that Illinois Senate President John Cullerton will introduce a so called “assault weapons” ban on Wednesday when the legislature returns for its “lame duck” session.  Cullerton hopes to ramrod the bill through and get it to Governor Quinn for signature by Friday.  If he is successful at doing so, nearly every gun you currently own will be banned and will be subject to confiscation by the Illinois State Police. 

Based on what we know about Cullerton’s bill, firearms that would be banned include all semiautomatic rifles, pistols, and shotguns.  Pump action shotguns would be banned as well.  This would be a very comprehensive ban that would include not only so-called “assault weapons” but also such classics as M1 Garands and 1911-based pistols.  There would be no exemptions and no grandfathering.  You would have a very short window to turn in your guns to the State Police to avoid prosecution. “

Time for some of y'all to nail signs on your front door that state: GTT

Which means, Gone To Texas. That's what the folks in the 1800's used to do.

We'd welcome any law abiding gun owners who don't want to awake to this kind of rumor in their state.

I have been busy calling and emailing our congressmen out here about this anti gun stuff and am now just hearing about this Illinois business. You are welcome out here in Washington as well. Not as good as Texas though!

They just won't give up. I just had a discussion with my son about how the British marching to Lexington and Concord were not really going to arrest John Hancock but to confiscate the arms stored there. I guess we live in interesting times.

Even Kalifornia hasn't gone this far but I am afraid you are giving them ideas.

Grace and peace.
