CO SHOOTING FIRES UP IL GOVERNOR: Quinn Makes Reach to Ban Assault Weapons
Virtually shouting over the criminal gunfire ravaging the streets of anti-gun Chicago these days, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn (D) (pictured) is making a move to ban assault weapons like those used in a shooting 1,000 miles away in Aurora, Colorado.
Available for interviews to attack Quinn’s judgment, motive and lack of common sense is chairman of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms (CCRKBA), Alan Gottlieb.
Not wasting any time, Gottlieb responded to Quinn’s initiative at length in an article posted on his organization’s website.
“Pat Quinn wants to take away the freedom of Illinois citizens because some psycho misused a gun in Colorado. Based on what we now know, that suspect could just as easily have used his bombs, and Quinn knows it. He’s just exploiting that case to please his anti-gun supporters with a gun control tactic that has already failed to keep guns out of the wrong hands.”
“Gun bans and restrictive gun laws don’t work,” Gottlieb added. “And you can look at Chicago as proof. Homicides actually went up during the 25 years that handguns were prohibited in the Windy City, and they are continuing to stack up bodies under the city’s current Draconian gun law, which still makes it nearly impossible for average law-abiding citizens to have firearms in their homes.”
“Citizens with FOID (Firearm Owner Identification) cards are the good guys. People who shoot up theaters, or leave dead people lying in the streets of Chicago, are the bad guys. It’s time for Gov. Quinn to understand the difference.”
