He did it. Governor “Jello” formally announced his amendatory veto of HB-183.
1. I’m not going to detail the contents because it doesn’t matter. Quinn’s proposal is in full arrest, just as it was when he announced it. DOA doesn’t begin to describe how dead it is. That dog don’t hunt. It’s a non-starter.
2. Part of it limits license holders to a single gun and up to ten rounds of ammo. If Quinn thinks that’s such a good idea, let’s let his protective detail give that a try and test run it there. After all, if he feels it’s good enough to protect your family, why shouldn’t it be good enough for him, right?
Laughably, things went sideways on Quinn even as he was trying to pander to the lowest of the low-information voters.
If Governor Patrick Quinn thought offering up a far-left, anti-gun amendatory veto of the bill passed overwhelmingly in the Illinois General Assembly was going to curry favor with Michael Bloomberg and his deep pocketbook, Quinn didn’t have to wait long for an answer.
Translation, Quinn’s re-election goose is cooked, as Chicago is the home to the vast majority of low-information Democrat voters – the very people who narrowly swept him into office last election by the slimmest of margins. Those low-information voters are going to see a Daley on the ballot and like little lemmings, they are going to vote for that Daley person.
Been nice knowing you, Patrick Quinn.
Hope you have your golden parachute ready for deployment and it lands you outside the confines of a federal correction facility…
