Things are heating up in Springfield this morning.
Ah, the land of freedom. It’s almost like Kentucky or Indiana as I did my morning errands with my safety rescue tool under my shirt with ZERO fear of arrest or prosecution from an overzealous member of the criminal justice system.
Talk about a weird feeling of not wearing a fanny pack!
Sorry for the digression out of the gate:
First up: Bill Daley will be in Springfield this morning to castigate our petulant little man-child governor Patrick Quinn’s non-leadership. Daley’s going to promote further victim disarmament and criticize the pension mess.
CapFax says there’s a “big amendment coming” on concealed carry that the media missed. Sorry, Rich. There was nothing to miss because the “big amendment” is going nowhere.
Wanna add your input to the hearing this morning on Quinn’s proposed amendatory veto that’s been written up as a new amendment to a shell bill? SUBMIT A WITNESS SLIP.
Fill it out as an individual.
HB11, Senate Amendment 2 is Quinn’s asinine proposal. As for the original bill, you can check supporter, opponent or no position on merits (your choice). On Senate Amendment 2, check opponent.
Takes about one to three minutes depending on how quickly to type.
The House will take up the over-ride this morning. The Senate is also expected to vote today as well.
In fact, the Illinois State Police have already put up a FAQ page on their website, and the information there is from the original bill, NOT the governor’s hair-brained proposed changes.
