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.

Kamala Says Giuliani Broke ‘Many Laws,’ Then Admits She Doesn’t Know Which Ones (Video)

So, which is it?

This guy is connected to Donald Hitler Trump. Of course he broke many laws. Which ones? How should I know, Anderson? I’m just out here saying whatever liberals want me to say. I don’t even really know why I’m running for office! That’s my Kamala Harris impression. Spot on, right? LOL. The California progressive has no shot at earning the Democrat nomination. Like all other Dems, Kamala talks and talks but has no real answers for any question. How can you say a man broke “many laws” and then not know which laws he broke? Is this a case of guilty before proven innocent? Sure sounds like it. From Daily Wire: Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris claimed during a Friday interview on CNN that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani had “broken many laws,” but, when pressed on what specific laws she thinks that he has broken, Harris struggled to give any examples. Harris appeared on “Anderson Cooper 360°” where she was asked about recent reports alleging that Giuliani is under federal investigation over his business dealings in Ukraine after two men that he was allegedly connected to were arrested by federal authorities.

Trump Scraps G-7 Meeting At His Doral Resort, Blasts Media & Dems for ‘Irrational Hostility’

A win for the left?

President Trump wanted to host next year’s G-7 Summit at his resort in Miami. That’s not happening anymore. As with all things Trump, the left had a conniption. What POTUS did was avoid a future headache. Trump made it clear on Twitter on Saturday night how upset he was with Dems and the mainstream media for causing yet another uproar. He also noted that this arrangement would have come at “ZERO COST to the USA.” But, it’s a done deal. Game over. No G-7 at Doral. 45’s tweets: I thought I was doing something very good for our Country by using Trump National Doral, in Miami, for hosting the G-7 Leaders. It is big, grand, on hundreds of acres, next to MIAMI INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, has tremendous ballrooms & meeting rooms, and each delegation would have… https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726930764611589 …..its own 50 to 70 unit building. Would set up better than other alternatives. I announced that I would be willing to do it at NO PROFIT or, if legally permissible, at ZERO COST to the USA. But, as usual, the Hostile Media & their Democrat Partners went CRAZY! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185726931611852802 ….Therefore, based on both Media & Democrat Crazed and Irrational Hostility, we will no longer consider Trump National Doral, Miami, as the Host Site for the G-7 in 2020. We will begin the search for another site, including the possibility of Camp David, immediately. Thank you! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1185735579327193093 More from Fox News: Trump first made the suggestion to have the 2020 G7 at his Doral resort in August at the 2019 summit in France, sparking controversy over the ethics of a president profiting off an official government event. One day after Mulvaney’s announcement, a trio of Democratic lawmakers introduced legislation to block the president from hosting next year’s summit. Reps. Lois Frankel from Florida, Bennie…
