Thank you Mr. Speaker


In Illinois, it is House Speaker Mike Madigan who makes things happen, one direction or the other.  Click HERE for a lesson on how the political system is supposed to work; nobody walked away with everything; everyone got something.  For both sides of the Illinois gun issue(s), it is a far from perfect bill but much better than nothing at all.  Suck it up and live with it for now; work the political system down the road to make it better.

Now we wait to see what happens in the Illinois Senate.

I don’t know the details. Will Chicago be able to weasel out of it somehow?

The bill goes back to the Senate next week; anything can happen in Illinois Politics.

I notice that the concern over local regulations only goes one way. They don't seem to be willing to let a local town have more freedom.

Typical. A good link.

Grace and peace.
