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.

Trump 2020 Campaign Fires McGhan’s Law Firm

Turnover is nothing new for the Trump White House.

Published

One of the key players identified in the pages of the Mueller report is Don McGhan, former counsel to the President. McGhan’s name hasn’t previously been this far into the forefront, but a revelation from within Robert Mueller’s inconclusive dissertation regarding possible obstruction of justice by the President has made him nearly a household name. McGhan’s infamy arises from a passage in the report detailing his reaction to a question by President Trump regarding possible conflicts of interest that Robert Mueller and his team may have had. After McGhan’s insubordination became public knowledge with the release of Mueller’s epic tome, President Trump’s 2020 campaign team have decided to no longer retain legal services from his firm. The Trump campaign has hired its own in-house attorney for its 2020 reelection bid — shifting future business away from Jones Day, the law firm, that has represented Trump since his first run for president. Campaign officials and advisers cast the decision to hire Nathan Groth — a former lawyer for the Republican National Committee and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker — as a money-saving move, supported by the businessman-turned-president who loves to cut costs. Here’s the kicker… But close Trump advisers say the decision also stems from disappointment with the White House’s former top attorney and current Jones Day partner, Don McGahn, whose behavior has irked the president and some of his family members. This certainly won’t surprise many within Trump’s inner circle, as his administration has been rife with turnover during the 2+ years since the President was inaugurated.

Trump Approval Numbers are SHOCKING After Mueller Report Release

National Emergency

The mainstream media’s nonstop speculation on the meaning of the Mueller report has certainly had an impact on the psyche of the nation. For two days, (that feel like an eternity), the infotainment industry has been parsing nearly every word from within the 400+ page report compiled by Robert Mueller in his role as Special Counsel. While Mueller was unable to charge the President with a crime, the mainstream media is now clinging to hope that congressional democrats will keep the fight alive….somehow. This cacophony of progressive nonsense has manifested itself in President Trump’s approval ratings. The number of Americans who approve of President Donald Trump dropped by 3 percentage points to the lowest level of the year following the release of a special counsel report detailing Russian interference in the last U.S. presidential election, according to an exclusive Reuters/Ipsos public opinion poll. The poll, conducted Thursday afternoon to Friday morning, is the first national survey to measure the response from the American public after the U.S. Justice Department released Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s 448-page report that recounted numerous occasions in which Trump may have interfered with the investigation. Where does Trump stand? According to the poll, 37 percent of adults in the United States approved of Trump’s performance in office, down from 40 percent in a similar poll conducted on April 15 and matching the lowest level of the year. That is also down from 43 percent in a poll conducted shortly after U.S. Attorney General William Barr circulated a summary of the report in March. The President has communicated his displeasure at the continued grievance of the democrats via Twitter, where he has lashed out several times since the release of the Mueller report.
