Kathleen Willis: “We worked very hard together with gun advocates” in SB1966 HA1… her racist $150 FOID card bill

May 17, 2019

So Kathleen Willis was interviewed by The Center Square about her racist gun control bill to price gun ownership out of the reach of inner-city people of color.  Just like the racists a hundred years ago did with Black Codes and Jim Crow gun control bills of that era.

She said “we worked very hard together with gun advocates.”  Some people are asking who those advocates might be.  Is it the Illinois State Rifle Association?  Illinois Carry?  Surely not the NRA, right?  Someone else, perhaps?

I’ll tell you who she worked with.  Jay Keller.  Who, after the fiasco with the Illinois Firearms Manufacturers Association (remember Springfield Armory and Rock River Arms and the sellout of 2016?), has been picked up by the National Shooting Sports Foundation.  I don’t have time right now to chase links down.  You can use your own Google-fu.

I’ve cautioned the NSSF that exactly this would happen weeks ago.  We had a couple of heated phone calls in fact as I pleaded the case for getting Keller out of the room when Willis’ “Gun Violence Coalition” team met, just as NRA, ISRA and Illinois Carry all got out and stayed out.  Of course, the crazy cat woman never extended an invite to GSL.  Go figure, right?  I’m crushed.

Sure enough, Kathleen Willis in using the fact the Jay was/is in the room, literally and proverbially, to claim that she has the input, support and cooperation of “gun advocates” for her slimy, racist proposed legislation.  It’s all to fool the people who don’t know any better…  you know, those Illinois legislators who are agnostic on guns.

Doubt me about Jay being a party to the meeting(s)?  Contact NSSF.  Ask for Jake.

While Jake says Jay was there just to work on some “Fix NICS” initiative they have, Kathleen Willis could give a damn about fixing anything.  All she wants is to pass more and more gun control.  It never ends for this sad woman.

Dear NSSF:  Will you finally end Jay’s participation in these gun control meetings?

    I knew how to punish RRA and Springfield Armory.

    How do we go about punishing NSSF?

    What can you say about a woman who looks like Gomer Pyle? If there was ever a better ad for roll on deodorant, there it is. Kathleen Willis

      This woman is repulsive as are all of her ilk. And the saddest thing is she really does not know any better.

    This why the FOID card needs to go.

    Every gun owner needs to stand up and be heard.

      Ummm, I wonder how the gun owners of 1776 stood up to be heard?!?! Or the gun owners of 1861?!?! I wonder!

        You don’t have to go that far back. You only have to go back to 1946 and the Battle of Athens in McMinn County, Tennessee.

    The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing.

    The bill is on the move !!!! Call your Senator and Representative NOW and tell them to vote NO on SB 1966 Amendment 1 and all other “gun control” and file witness slips NOW !!!!

  8. DM on May 20, 2019 at 6:18 pm

    As of 6:15 PM, pro slips are 3417, opponents are 2744.

    Common people.

  9. DM on May 20, 2019 at 6:24 pm

    3417 for/2744 against was for the original bill.

    for the HA1 amendment it is 120 for 2830 against.

    This is very confusing. It is easy to mix up the original bill and the HA1 amendment. Be careful when entering witness slips.

    Nunn v Georgia 1 Ga. (1 Kel.) 243 (1846) is a Georgia Supreme Court ruling

    “‘The right of the people to bear arms shall not be infringed.’
    The right of the whole people, old and young, men, women and boys, and not militia only, to keep and bear arms of every description, not such merely as are used by the militia, shall not be infringed, curtailed, or broken in upon, in the smallest degree; and all this for the important end to be attained: the rearing up and qualifying a well-regulated militia, so vitally necessary to the security of a free state.
    Our opinion is, that any law, State of Federal, is repugnant to the Constitution, and void, which contravenes this right, originally belonging to our forefathers, trampled under foot by Charles I and his two wicked sons and successors, reestablished by revolution of 1688, conveyed to this land of liberty by the colonist, and finally incorporated conspicuously in our own Magna Caharta!”

    Even Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has said;
    “In Muscarello v. United States, 524 U. S. 125 (1998), in the course of analyzing the meaning of “carries a firearm” in a federal criminal statute, JUSTICE GINSBURG wrote that “[s]urely a most familiar meaning is, as the Constitution’s Second Amendment . . . indicate[s]: ‘wear, bear, or carry . . . upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose . . . of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person.’” Id., at 143 (dissenting opinion)”

    I keep hearing that we must keep guns out of the hands of criminals. That is backwards. If someone is thought to be dangerous, do not try to change the weapon that they might use. Remove them to a place where they can be helped and controlled away from any weapons. You do not keep cars away from drunks, you keep drunks away from cars. Keep putting the criminals in jail when they perform criminal acts. That keeps their hands away from guns. Adding more fees and permits to legally have firearms does nothing to the criminal having firearms.

    The FOID Act should be struck down as unconstitutional. We have the 2nd amaendment right to bear arms; certainly in our own homes to defend them. If I do not possess a FOID card, then I’m judged to be a criminal and own my firearms illegally in Illinois even in my own home?!! No way!! Where does the Constitution state that I need a FOID card keep firearms? Only in Kathleen Willis’ world. (Saying she looks like Gomer Pyle is an insult to Mr. Pyle). She actually looks like the Elephant Man.
