Poor Governor J.B. Pritzker. He thought he was going to look like presidential material signing HB-5471, the gun control bill that bans America’s hottest-selling self-defense firearms and imposes gun registration upon Illinois residents. He even signed it behind a podium that looks like the presidential podium.
Within a few hours, a couple of dozen Illinois sheriffs told him to go pound sand. Then some county boards got involved and by the end of yesterday, ninety sheriffs and/or county boards told the governor to POUND SAND. This includes both Democrat and Republican county sheriffs.
Yes, what Pritzker thought was going to be a master stroke of political genius has turned into a master class in political embarrassment. Pritzker looks impotent. He’s probably asking Jimmy Durkin if he can borrow some of Durkin’s little blue pills.
Oh, what a shame.
