What Several Counties in Illinois are Doing for Gun Owners is Making Liberals Furious

When the left sees which of their favorite policies is being used against them, they’ll lose it.

When you think of gun rights the last place that comes to mind is the state of Illinois, given that Chicago has some of the tightest gun control laws in the country.

Which, by the way, has done absolutely nothing to curb the outrageous number of shootings and murders in the city, since bad guys don’t really care much for abiding by the law.

However, not every county in the state is drinking the progressive Kool-Aid.

Several rural counties have decided enough is enough and have taken a stand on behalf of gun owners that is guaranteed to make liberal lawmakers throw tantrums.

These counties are using the left’s “sanctuary policy” to provide protection for those exercising their Second Amendment rights.

At least five counties recently passed resolutions declaring themselves sanctuary counties for gun owners – a reference to so-called sanctuary cities such as Chicago that don’t cooperate with aspects of federal immigration enforcement.

The resolutions are meant to put the Democratic-controlled Legislature on notice that if it passes a host of gun bills, including new age restrictions for certain weapons, a bump stock ban and size limit for gun magazines, the counties might bar their employees from enforcing the new laws.

“It’s a buzzword, a word that really gets attention. With all these sanctuary cities, we just decided to turn it around to protect our Second Amendment rights,” said David Campbell, vice chairman of the Effingham County Board. He said at least 20 Illinois counties and local officials in Oregon and Washington have asked for copies of Effingham County’s resolution.

The reason these counties are taking actionable steps to defend those exercising the right to bear arms is due to the fact that many lawmakers in and around rural areas are outnumbered by those coming out of Chicago, the vast majority of which are raging liberals who still are under the impression criminals will obey gun control laws.

This comes despite the fact that more than 650 homicides that took place in Chicago last year involved guns.

It appears the left will never, ever learn their lesson on this issue.

The very reason the Second Amendment exists is to provide American citizens with the means to defend their lives, families, property, and ultimately their liberty, from both criminals and tyrants.

The assumption behind this amendment is that people are broken with a sinful nature and often times fall to the temptation of taking what doesn’t belong to them. God has given us the right to protect ourselves, to own private property, and thus, by extension — and explicitly mentioned in the Bible in Exodus 22 — the right to defend ourselves.

Criminals do not obey laws. That’s why they are, in fact, criminals. Thus, all these gun control laws do is prevent law abiding citizens from being able to protect themselves, essentially creating easier targets for the bad guys.

You’d think Chicago would have learned this by now, but alas, the left is too invested in their pipe dream of a utopian society to grasp what’s happening right under their noses.

Disney Slaps ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Dumbo,’ Other Classic Films With New Content Warnings

Published

on

Disney has decided to continue walking down the “woke” path, attempting to stay relevant so they can milk the rest of humanity for all the dollars possible by tossing some disclaimers on a number of classic films warning that some scenes in the movies contain “negative depictions” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” Good grief. If Disney didn’t own two-thirds of the world at this point, it would become obvious that making this choice to “go woke” would result in the company “going broke,” but since they do seem to have their hand in everything, nothing is going to come of them doing this. via Daily Wire: “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” says the 12-second disclaimer, which cannot be skipped. The films include “Dumbo” from 1941, “Peter Pan” from 1953, “Swiss Family Robinson” from 1960, and “The Aristocats” from 1970. The disclaimer also directs viewers to a website titled “Stories Matter,” which says, “Because happily ever after doesn’t just happen.” “As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the site says. “We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of.” Disney went on to explain the reason for slapping the warnings on the content: Dumbo “The crows and musical number pay homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations. The leader of the…

Top Astrophysicist Says Asteroid Could Smash Into Earth Day Before Election

Published

So far in the year 2020 we’ve had a pandemic featuring an age discriminating virus, race riots, the government admitting UFOs are real, murder hornets, and the wackiest presidential race of all time. Surely there’s nothing else this year could throw at us, right? Wrong. Apparently, according to astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, there’s a strong possiblity an asteroid is going to smash into the earth the day before the election. Who had asteroid on their 2020 Bingo card? via Fox News: An asteroid with a diameter the size of a refrigerator could strike the Earth the day before the November election, according to celebrity scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson — but it’s not large enough to do any serious damage. The famed astrophysicist said the space rock, known as 2018VP1, is hurtling towards Earth at a speed of 25,000 miles per hour and may clip the planet on Nov. 2. “It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov. 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he wrote on Instagram. But he added that the flying object is nothing to lose sleep over since “it’s not big enough to cause harm.”⠀⠀⠀ NASA already identified the asteroid that is rocketing toward earth, but stated the chances of it actually hitting the earth are currently less than one percent. “It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it would disintegrate due to its extremely small size,” the organization stated. While this rock may not hit earth, or even if it does, it might now do much in the way of damage, but I’ve seen enough scary movies to know that when stuff like this happens, strange occurrences follow. So, sure, you may not have to worry about the asteroid, but if it passes by our planet and you suddenly…
