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.

‘We Will Not Stop!’ Maxine Waters Says There May Be More ‘Impeachment Activity’ Later In 2020

Exactly what America does not want to hear…

Maxine Waters appeared on MSNBC on Sunday to virtually announce that the Senate will acquit Donald Trump. However, that doesn’t mean Democrats won’t stop trying to impeach a duly-elected president who has not committed a single crime. In other words, Republicans need to retain the Senate and win the House at the start of Trump’s second term in office so the nation can have any hope of putting this impeachment embarrassment to bed. Here’s what’s up, via Free Beacon: Rep. Maxine Waters (D., Calif.) said Sunday that Democrats “will not stop” on impeachment and added that there may be more “impeachment activity” in the near future. “The subpoenas that I have issued that have gone through the lower courts are now going to be heard at the Supreme Court in March,” Waters said during an appearance on MSNBC. “We will not stop. Whether or not that leads to another impeachment activity, I don’t know.” WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Gg4xP_uOy4&feature=emb_logo While on CNN late last year, Mad Max did what she does best and attacked POTUS for attempting to make America a safer place. She said, “There should be comprehensive immigration reform and not immigration reform based on exciting and inciting those people who have negative thoughts about others coming across our border, and basically working to use that information to promote himself in a campaign. And I think some of that is very racist.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/NewDay/status/1129367547046813697 Democrats today are a different breed. They care more for bashing Trump than they do helping their country. It’s not only sad, it’s downright un-American.

WATCH: Warren Doesn’t Understand How People Could Vote for ‘Someone Who Lies to Them’

Irony.

Despite claiming she was of Indian decent for decades only to have that myth publicly disproven over an embarrassing phone call, 2020 Democrat presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren think it would be best for the American people to choose a person for office who doesn’t lie. Does this mean she’s dropping from the race? After all, Warren has been caught lying on so many occasions that it’s kind of ridiculous. SMH. The irony. Oh, the irony. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) refused to answer a question from a CBS reporter on Sunday about whether it was acceptable for a presidential candidate to lie to the American public. WATCH: https://twitter.com/cbszak/status/1218971964443893760?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1218971964443893760&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F442220-elizabeth-warren-how-could-the-american-people-want-someone-who-lies-to-them%2F The problem is that Warren can say whatever she wants and get away with it because she has the media on her side. Thanks, Obama. WATCH: Holy shit. I have Warren on video lying about where she sent her kids to school. Sarah Carpenter: “I read that your children went to private schools” Warren: “No my children went to public schools” https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1197972004412051457?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1197972004412051457&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Reactions: Warren was confronted by an activist for sending her son to a private school, and denied doing so. Then she admitted to the ⁦@FreeBeacon⁩ that she sent her son to private school beginning in 5th grade. https://twitter.com/BrentScher/status/1198034214005940224?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1198034214005940224&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Holy shit. I’m the first to figure it out. I’m nearly certain Elizabeth Warren sent her son to an expensive private school in Austin Texas (Kirby Hall School). Warren has been trying to cover this up since she fights against school choice. https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032032464244736?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032032464244736&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F I found this yearbook entry for Alex Warren (born in 1976). It’s the only one. It’s Kirby Hall School. A private school right next to UT in Austin Texas (where Warren was teaching). https://twitter.com/DeAngelisCorey/status/1189032556240478209?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1189032556240478209&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2019%2F11%2F22%2Fshe-lies-about-everything-elizabeth-warren-caught-lying-about-sending-her-son-to-public-school%2F Here’s the ONLY family photo I could find of Alex…
