Barbara Flynn Currie


Honey, you aren’t calling the shots on this one.

This is the firearms cliff for you, Barbara.  Either you give us what we want and maybe get a little back, or you can be obstinate in the typical gun hating way you’ve done in the last twenty years, and in 178 more days, our FOID cards become carry permits.

Either way, we’re good with that!

Concealed carry: Court strikes down Illinois’ ban

(Chicago Tribune) – …House Majority Leader Barbara Flynn Currie, a longtime gun control advocate, said she hoped the state would appeal the ruling. But Currie also said lawmakers must “get cracking” on how to respond to the ruling and begin parsing its key points.

Currie, D-Chicago, said that “justices surely do not mean that we would have to have wide-open” laws in Illinois. She said Illinois must now look at what other states are doing, such as disallowing guns in day-care centers and other locations.

“If we need to change the law, let us at least craft a law that is very severely constrained and narrowly tailored so that we don’t invite guns out of control on each of our city’s streets,” Currie said. “I don’t want people out of control wandering the streets with guns that are out of control.

Frankly, my dear, nobody on our side gives a damn what you want.

  1. Uh… the only one out of control here seems to be….. Barbara Flynn Currie. If gun owners were out of control, we would not seek a legal method of carrying… fear mongering Moron!

  2. Barbara, Barbara, Barbara… and your anti-gunners had your chance of effecting “reasonable” laws to be enacted, but you and your ilk decided to make this difficult and added more unreasonable demands on the bill. Now you and others who had been stridently against guns had your ASSES handed back to you in confetti sized pieces……Remember this statement:


    Don’t go away angry, Just go away……

  3. Barbara, there are ALREADY people “wandering the streets with guns that are out of control”. They are called CRIMINALS. They are usually repeat offenders, and they almost universally DON’T have FOID cards. You spend way too much time worrying about the good guys and girls that might have guns to protect themselves from the CRIMINALS.

    1. Concerned Citizen is right on the money. You have got to wonder what makes a person like Barbara tick.

  4. Yes, Barb you want now to create millions of gun free zones that are a killers dream. Tat is exactly where all mass killing happen where a killer has absolute poweer Where all victims are conviently helpless. Schools, universities, post offices, malls all gun free zones where mass killing happen. It is a self evident truth that escapes Barb, that criminals will not obey the law.

  5. Gee, Babs, I’ve worked in Chicago too many times to count, and lived (was stationed, military) in Illinazi for a few years. I’VE ALWAYS CARRIED A GUN IN CHICAGO, your dumbassed, unconstitutional laws be damned.

    And, not surprisingly for an otherwise “law-abiding” citizen, I’ve never robbed, raped, murdered, or assaulted anyone.

    Your “gun control” laws do not control guns, or criminals, or politicians trying to smuggle guns onto airplanes; only “law-abiding” citizens.

    I honestly do not intend to ever visit Chicago again in my lifetime. But if I should, I’ll for damned sure be armed.

    Try OBEYING YOUR OATH OF OFFICE, and leave We, the People (who, coincidentally, pay your salary) THE HELL ALONE.

  6. Exactly the wrong person chosen to chair the rules committee for Illinois concealed carry laws. A gun hating, irrational, tax sucking parasite forever politician holding a leadership position in the most politically corrupt state in the nation. And a perpetrator of organized crime against the states citizens. That also explains why they cut expenses first by laying off police and let criminals out of prison early and close prisons under the guise to save money.
