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...

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. People tend to freeze during an attack,...

OMG!  Mandalay Bay Hotel active shooter policy left spree killer UNCHALLENGED!

I predict that if indeed the Mandalay Bay had armed security who hung back "waiting for police" while...

LOSER:  Sleazy “Mr. Sexual Harassment Settlement” Harvey Weinstein to Attack NRA

What a sleazeball.  Harvey Weinstein, the Democrat megadonor and Hillary supporter, says he's going to devote his full-time attention to attacking the NRA.  That is, if he can keep his hands off his female employees.  The New York Times reports on nearly three decades worth of sexual harassment complaints – including eight big settlements...

ILLINOIS: Reportedly Mob-Connected IL Rep Introduces Gun Ban, Trigger Mod Ban

October 5, 2017
Gun Ban

Back when Rod Blagojevich busied himself introducing all manner of radical gun control schemes, Progressive Democrat Marty Moylan worked as an Electrical Union enforcer.  His job, among other things, involved getting Electrical Union workers "out of jams" and his work as a "scab buster".  Nice guy, right?  Well, that's not all.  He's also got ties...
