Some of you may recall that the 2nd Amendment is quite clear, the right to keep and BEAR arms shall not be infringed... however in Illinois it is a felony to bear arms in any manner, rights denied, tyranny wins. Now a man who was in a position to make a positive change in that and didn't, is in and now out of jail for carrying an unloaded handgun through security. The press so incompetently adds that his handgun had "a magazine clip with six bullets". Someday, I'd like someone to explain what a magazine clip is... is it a clip that holds several magazines together?
Don't get me wrong, I don't believe the man did anything wrong... except betray himself and the entire populace of the state of Illinois by making safe, party friendly non-votes on gun issues. For that, he deserves to taste what the citizenry face every day in that wretched police state.
