Hi folks! I saw this article this morning on the Wisconsin Preppers sight. It made me so MAD!! Obviously, it doesn't apply to IL specifically, but it applies to anyone who lives in this country. No matter how you feel about guns, the right to protect oneself is GOD-given and the right to own a gun is constitutionally-protected. We should all be fighting to protect those rights. Our founders put the right to own firearms in the constitution because they wanted to be sure that the citizens of this country would be able to protect themselves against a tyrannical government. It wasn't just because they needed to hunt, or target practice or go skeet shooting. They wanted to stay free and they knew that governments have a tendency to threaten that. Have you ever taken notice of the fact that the right to an education is NOT constitutionally protected, but the right to bear arms is?

Did you know that the Revolutionary War started because the British were going to take our arms? It didn't start because of 'taxation without representation' like our modern day school books want us to think. The great war started because the government was trying to take our guns! Those brave men of old stood up and said 'NO!' so loudly that it could be heard the world over! When will we stand up and say 'NO'? How far will we let these people we've appointed and elected steal our rights?! This is an election year, folks. Study each candidate long and hard before you elect one. We give them great power and they steal more than they're given. I'm not sure how much longer we can take the robbery. Foxes in henhouses usually get taken care of pretty darn quick!

For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security. Thomas Jefferson (emphasis mine)

Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny. Thomas Jefferson

Prep on and stay alert!

Thanks for the heads up post. Now I'm mad and ready to take constructive action to prevent this Newspeak twist of the 2nd Amendment taking root here. We have ever more "progressives" moving here and trying to impose their Dhimmicratic [sic] ways on us. So such could even happen here.

Sounds like the cop had a bit of a problem. I believe he had the right, and duty, to check out the lawyer when he glimpsed the gun. I don't think the cop should have drawn down on the lawyer, unless the area was very high crime or the cop had SS fantasies.

This could also have been a test by the cop shop to see if they could get away with such behavior. Such things have been done in the past in Cali', with the BART police department among others.

Incredible ruling by the Court, but consistent with the new hopey changey views of Dear Leader's head law officer.

Thanks for a great blog that helps keep me up on how you all are in Illinois.

Mt_Serval, thank you for the kind words! Yes, I think the 2nd amendment is the one thing that, if pushed too far, will actually be the thing that sparks the revolution. We seem to be able to 'suffer, while evils are sufferable', but going for arms will be the line drawn in the sand for many.
The other thing that really made me mad when I read the article was the fact that 2 judges ruled that the cops behavior was correct!!!!! What?????? What's the point of a Right to Carry permit if he has no right to carry? He hadn't drawn on the cop; the cop was just feeling a power rush. And for the courts to think that it was an appropriate was to act, well that just irks me to no end! Rrrggghhhh! Thanks for stopping by, MT!

Oh my goodness! This is REAL bad. Not only have the cop and judge broke an oath but they have raised a serious issue and problem and a major red flag for "we the people". This is REALLY bad. Cops here in Hawaii are hopeless, seems as though they are hiring all losers, they're corrupt as well. The hubby & I know we cannot depend on them for anything ziltcho, nada. Basically I say to the hubby we're gonna be on our own you know? they're friends w/ the crack-heads and they do absolutely nothing for the community-our wasted tax dollars!

Aloha, I'm so sorry to hear that! We really have to rely on ourselves and our own friends for protection these days, don't we? Isn't it a shame, too, that it is our tax dollars, like you said? We pay them, but we get nothing in return but trouble! (Can't we just stop paying them? Hmmmm...) Thanks for stopping in!
