TEAM COPS vs. TEAM CIVILIANS:  Who to cheer for in Chicago’s justifiable homicide race

BLACK LIVES MATTER? Kill a black boy with a brick, get convicted, serve less than 4 years, then try to kill again

BLACK LIVES MATTER?  Kill a black boy with a brick, get convicted, serve less than 4 years, then try to kill again

Do black lives matter?  Apparently not to Chicago's Democrat Prosecutor's office or some Cook County criminal court judges.  Cook County prosecutors have had a very soft-on-crime demeanor for years under Democrat county prosecutors.  And their soft-on-crime attitudes shattered more lives this past weekend in the Windy City. Last weekend, in the Greektown neighborhood of Chicago – hardly a high-crime...

Did Marty Moylan lose his liquor license after firing a shotgun at Marty’s Ragtime Bar one too many times?

While pulling a shotgun from behind the bar and popping off a round into the ceiling might have played well in the Wild West, today it does not go over well with authorities.  You would think even an idiot would know this.  As we have been told, Marty Moylan – the gun control advocate serving in the Illinois General...

RED ALERT:  Gun Control on the Move in Illinois Starting Tuesday.  WITNESS SLIPS Needed.

    by John Boch Well, as Todd Vandermyde, the NRA-ILA's contract lobbyist in Illinois says, "it certainly has been a busy week".  What's more, the Illinois General Assembly isn't even in session!    The fact that they aren't in session has worked well for us.  It's given some of the "squishier" members of the Illinois House (and the...

BUELLER? Is there any room for Gun Owners in the Illinois Democrat Party?

BUELLER?  Is there any room for Gun Owners in the Illinois Democrat Party?

"There is no room for gun owners in the Illinois Democratic Party." That certainly seems to be the case after progressive Democrat Marty Moylan introduced House Bill 4107.  And his fellow Illinois Democrats jumped on board as co-sponsors:   10/5/2017 House Filed with the Clerk by Rep. Martin J. Moylan   10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep. Emanuel Chris Welch   10/5/2017 House Added Co-Sponsor Rep....

Editorial: Sheepdogs Display Heroism While NFL Shows Its Ass

While the wicked preyed upon innocents in a horrific attack in Las Vegas, brave American sheepdogs showed their nation our very best. The very next day, in a striking contrast to the bravery and courage under fire from Las Vegas, social justice “warriors” in the NFL flipped America off.
